Baton Rouge or Bust!

I know there are probably other bloggers who are more delinquent than I am when it comes to posting, but they are few and far between. However, I can now tell you why I have just been too busy and preoccupied to blog for the last couple of months. As of July 1st I will become the new Senior pastor of Parkview Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, La.

My family and I are excited about the possibilities and challenges that lay ahead of us. Pray for us that we can find a home large enough for us, and still in our price range! God is faithful and sovereign and He will provide both for the sell of my current home and the purchase of our future home.

Once again I am struck by the awesome responsibility that God has given pastors to preach the Word. My success at Parkview will not ultimately be measured by buildings, budgets, baptisms or even problem solving skills; but by how faithful I will be to preach God centered, expositional messages.

Pray for us - the future looks bright ahead!

I have no doubt that you will do an amazing job there. God has His hand on you and your family. We will miss you all very much, but love you and will continue to pray for you.

I really enjoyed the video of you on PBCBR website. (I can't stop smiling at the occasional bump, crash and giggle in the background.) I'm looking forward to watching you and your family grow there. You're so blessed, and we've been blessing in knowing you.
