A couple Sunday’s ago I had the great honor of being at Hopewell Baptist Church in Harrodsburg with pastor Doug Wesley, a CU alum and now a CU dad, talking about raising up the next generation for Christ. They had kids running everywhere. God is working to help them reach children and families in their rural community.
Then onto Eubank Baptist Church in Pulaski Co this past Saturday to spend the morning with pastor Shelby Reynolds, youth pastor James Griffith (CU alum), family pastor Jeremy Johnson and a great group of parents discussing how to disciple our children in Christ. We had parents from EBC, Beacon Hill BC and Polly Ann BC join us. Great time together.
Looking ahead a few weeks to April, I get the privilege to spend an evening with the fine people of Hillcrest Baptist Church in downtown Lexington with pastor Tony Hancock and his sweet wife Mrs. Rhonda, the children’s director, sharing about VBS and helping them train their leaders for the upcoming summer.
Then back to Mercer Co. and to Bruner’s Chapel Baptist Church for their spring revival April 21-24. I will be joined by my dear brothers and fellow CU alums Brandon Carrier, Jason Dunbar, Tim Hervey and Zach Rice of Sola Grace leading the revival.
Finally at the end of April, my wife Jennifer and I doing a family conference for Beechland Baptist Church in Louisville for youth pastor Corey Young, one of my former CU students. Corey and his wife Jessica are approaching their first year at Beechland and are doing a tremendous job with the students and families.
With all this, I have to mention Seminary for a Day April 13 at Greenwood Baptist Church hosted by the KY Baptist Convention and Campbellsville Univ. I will be leading a morning session on preaching, which I am really excited about. It is always a pleasure to be with bi-vocational and part-time pastors encouraging them in their service to the body of Christ.
Ministry opportunity abounds. God is gracious and kind.
