To our wonderful members at FBC;
Words cannot begin to express how humbly grateful my family and I are for the love and acceptance we have felt from you all from the first day we came to FBC. Now that you have unanimously voted for me to be your Senior Pastor, my heart is truly overwhelmed with joy and thanksgiving. By all of this you have given me tremendous confidence and great encouragement, and I KNOW God is going to do great things among us!!
Although I will not be with you this Sunday (as we have had a family vacation planned that we really need) I am with you in Spirit. I am very excited about our missions’ month and all that God is doing through our church to bring the lifesaving message of the Gospel to a dying world.
I encourage you to pray about your involvement with the Faith Promise Commitment this year, and remember you can NEVER out give God!! This is an important part of FBC’s missions program and we can and will make a major impact as we trust God to provide! One of my favorite Pastors had a saying that has always stuck with me “where God guides, God provides”! This has rang true in my life time and again as I am confident it will in yours!!
Finally, I want to thank the search committee and the Board of Deacons for all your tender love and support through the search and election process. The dedication, prayers, time and love that you have put into this church will bring great fruit to all of us!! THANK YOU!!
In His Grace and Truth:
