“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

What an exciting weekend we had celebrating Easter recently with our Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday services! Thank you to everyone who helped make it an impactful weekend. There’s something extra special about celebrating the Risen Jesus on Easter Sunday. I am left in awe and wonder thinking about the magnitude of the scene at the empty tomb that first Easter morning. My prayer is for this awe and wonder to never fade, but grow with time as our relationship with Jesus grows. Let us strive to celebrate the resurrected Jesus all year long....
Spring Break is here! We always look forward to Spring Break in our house because that means the boys get a whole week at home with mommy to relax and have fun. No school. No early morning alarms. No homework. This week will be refreshing for all the teachers and students as they gear up for the final push towards summer. Though I am planning to take a little time off to enjoy my family this week, I am also working hard with our staff to continue to plan and prepare for Easter....
“Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, this is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2...
I have received a positive response from those who have used our YouTube and Spotify playlists of “Songs We Sing at SHBC.” Please use this resource. This link to the SHBC Worship Ministry website will help you access lists of the Hymns and Praise Songs that we sing in worship. Ideally, listening to these will help you become more familiar with our songs, allow you to focus on God more clearly in worship, and also inform your personal, daily worship time with Christ....

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

Happy New Year! Most of us would agree, though days seem to drag on at times, the years fly by. 2016 was another year full of blessings and challenges for all of us.

The Christmas season is here! It's an exciting time for all of us, but also a very busy time for most of us. Our schedules are filling up with parties, events, programs, and not to mention our work schedules. I love the Christmas season for so many reasons, but most importantly it is a chance to refocus our hearts on the person of Jesus....Keep Reading
This Sunday is our special worship service set aside to explore the themes of Christmas through music: Love Crossed Over. My heart behind the expression of this service is that it will reflect the multi-generational nature of our congregation. ...Keep Reading
