SIKESTON - Having a governor - or soon-to-be governor - leading a worship service with his gospel singing and witnessing is certainly not common.

Governor-elect John Ashcroft and Circuit Judge Max Bacon returned to the First United Methodist Church for the seventh consecutive year on Sunday to percent their faith in song and witness.
