We are drawing closer to summer camp. We are one month away. I would like to say thank you for your investment in Youth Camp. Please pray for our students to experience God, I AM, before, during, and after camp. Pray for our hearts and minds to be prepared for the messages and experiences God has for us. Pray for lives to be changed, and that we would return ready to share I AM with others....
As many of you know, our Administrative Assistant, Shelley Kruse, started her journey to go back to school to pursue a degree in nursing almost three years ago. Becoming a nurse has always been a dream of hers and through hard work, determination, and great discipline she graduated in December. Since then she has been searching for a job and a couple of weeks ago she accepted a nursing position. As a result of this new opportunity, she has resigned from her position here at South Hills after more than ten years on our staff. It certainly is bittersweet for her, and us, but we are excited for her and this new adventure....

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....

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.
