Pastor’s Perspective 04-02-19

I am sitting at my desk staring at two articles I have read within the past week on the subject church leaders everywhere seem to be trying to figure out: the decline in commitment to the local church. The first article was written by the President of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The second by the […]

This time last week I was at Disney World with our son and his family. It’s been a long time since I was there as a child. Some things are still the same. A lot has changed. The highlight of the week for me was experiencing the Magic Kingdom through the eyes of our grandchildren: […]

Pastor’s Perspective 03-19-19

Like you, I’ve found it challenging to complete the reading of the Old Testament books of the Bible each week. But completing the challenge brings reward. Isn’t it amazing to see God work in the lives of simple and ordinary people to accomplish His plan? It’s a plan we see from Genesis leading to the […]

The title of the article caught my attention: “Millennials Say Evangelism is Wrong.” Dr. Alex McFarland speaks to thousands of young people each year through his national and regional apologetics conferences entitled, “Truth for a New Generation.” The conferences are designed to help students, parents, youth pastors and community members lift up the millennial generation, […]

Josh timed his R&R to hopefully be home for the birth of his third son. The plan worked beautifully! He flew into RDU on Monday […]

Not a day goes by that I am not grateful to the Lord for the work to which He has called me. As callings go, ministry may not be the easiest way to make a living. But it is the calling for which God has wired me. I find it tremendously fulfilling and have never […]

Pastor’s Perspective 02-12-19

Those of us who have been in church all our lives can sometimes get too comfortable with our faith. We’ve read some of the more familiar stories in the Bible so many times they’ve lost their “wow” factor. I wonder how David really felt when he went out to do battle with Goliath. Or Shadrach, […]

I have written before about the joy of praying with my grandsons at bedtime. Most recently, Caleb (3) has been asking me to help him pray. Carson (5) asks me what else he can pray for. What a joy and a privilege to teach my grandchildren how to talk to God! My parents did the […]
