Every Wednesday evening (with few exceptions) I have the privilege of conducting the rehearsal of our worship choir. Anywhere from 10 to 30 of us spend an hour (7:30-8:30) in the Choir Room (Rm. 100) preparing anthems and new worship songs we will lead during our weekly Sunday worship gathering and occasional special worship services. ...
We have made it to the final week of school as the month of June is around the corner. Summer is here (though the first official day is June 21st) and with summer comes a variety of emotions. Teachers and students are celebrating and rejoicing greatly with excitement. On the other hand, some parents are excited while others may not be nearly as excited for various reasons. Yet, for others summer only means hotter temperatures and less school traffic to and from work....
We are drawing closer to the close of another school year. The sounds you hear in the background are the students screaming for joy, or may be the parents scrambling to finish the summer schedules. Our schedules are full leading into the summer as the students and leaders prepare for the final push of fundraisers....
I am so grateful for the ways that my SHBC Family has supported and partnered with me in the ministry work as Worship & Discipleship Pastor. Beyond this, though, you have supported my work as husband and father, especially through the difficult days of Theresa’s fight against colon cancer. Today, I am asking for your support in a very specific way....Keep Reading
Easter 2017 is just around the corner in a few short weeks! We are excited about planning a meaningful worship experience on Good Friday evening where we will observe the Lord’s Supper and focus on the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross. Then on Easter Sunday morning (April 16th) we will rejoice in the resurrection power of Jesus. Every Sunday we get to worship Je...Keep Reading
We have many things for which to be thankful. I am thankful for our last sermon series, "No Regrets." My prayer for us all is that we will not allow our relationship with Christ to be or become routine, we will invest in our relationships with God and others, sharing Christ as we go, and what we do is seen or filtered through Scripture....Keep Reading
Such an important part of growing in Christ is the investment of others in our lives. I am so thankful for the investment that my parents made in me, but I’m also very grateful that others took the time to disciple, mentor, and influence me, pointing me toward Jesus....Keep Reading
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) In yesterday’s sermon I referenced this verse to remind us we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to share the good news of the gospel. This verse also reminds us of the mandate we have as believers and the ch...Keep Reading
Typical Texas, we have only had one week (maybe two) of winter, and here we are ramping up talk of Youth Summer Camp. The Chili Cook Off Fundraiser is Wednesday, Feb. 15. Please bring your chili and/or your appetite as we try to warm up from these “winter temps.” We will have toppings and desserts. ...Keep Reading
Today, I wish to recognize and express public thanks to a vital team who serves within the Worship-Arts Ministry at South Hills: our AWESOME AV Team. This team is incredibly important to the effective work of the rest of our team. In fact, every Sunday Morning at the end of our rehearsal, when our Vocal Team and Worship Band pray for the worship service, we insist that the...Keep Reading
In my first sermon of 2017 I shared my burden for our church to engage in a renewed emphasis on prayer. Prayer is our direct line to God and if we want clarity and direction for ministry and life we must be closely connected to God through prayer. In the sermon I said “No program, personality, or purpose statement will accomplish anything worthwhile apart from surrendere...Keep Reading
The first few weeks of 2017 have been great. We have been reminded of and called to prayer and reminded of needs in our community and across the United States. As we continue to focus on prayer and ministry through South Hills Baptist, I pray we live with no regrets as we serve God. We serve God through our daily jobs and as we attend school. Please continue to pray for, a...Keep Reading
