This Sunday (August 21st), I have the great honor of preaching a trial sermon to become the interim pastor of Lancaster Baptist Church in Garrard County. I am so excited about this possibility and opportunity to serve an excellent church with a passion for the Gospel and mission to reach people for Jesus.
This interim will be slightly different than the other three I’ve been involved with. This will be a 2-day a week experience, instead of the Sunday-only setups before. If called, I will teach the Wednesday evening small group for adults and be available to work with staff and leadership groups before or after that meeting. On Sunday, I will preach the Sunday morning service and be available to meet with deacons or the search committee as needed.
I will be surrounded by an outstanding staff of brother-pastors: Associate Pastor Michael York, Worship Pastor Nehemiah Wilkinson, and Youth Pastor Stephen Brogli. These men are full devoted to the Lord and He is using them greatly in His kingdom work.
The vote will be at the end of the Sunday morning worship service. If affirmed and called, I will begin in full on Sunday, August 28th. I am so thankful for the local church and the small part Jesus has called me to play in serving His bride.
