Today, I am asking for your support in a very specific way....

I thank my God every time I remember you

We have many things for which to be thankful. I am thankful for our last sermon series, "No Regrets."

This team is incredibly important to the effective work of the rest of our team.

Priority on Prayer

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...

Moving Forward with No Regrets

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...
