Catch the Wave

Do you want to see something amazing?  Check out the video below.  It’s about 1 ½ minutes long.  Here’s a description of what you’ll see…

Famed surfer Laird Hamilton is standing on his surfboard being pulled along by a jet ski.  At the right time (when he has gained enough speed), he lets go and begins to surf on his own.  And THEN the camera starts to pull back, and you realize that he is not on just any wave.  As the camera keeps pulling back, Continue reading

Just one cog?

cogI’m just one person.  What can I do?  How can I really make a difference?  I’m not that important.  I’m just a cog in the machine.

All of that is true of you.  You probably won’t make a huge impact in the world.  You are just one person – insignificant in the big scheme things.

UNLESS… Continue reading

VBS – Can you see it in it?


     A funny thing happened recently at First Baptist Church.  We had Vacation Bible School.  For some, it brings memories of fun activities, songs, and (of course) red koolaid and cookies.  For some, it brings moments of fear and trepidation – as they think about being in a room with a few dozen sugar-ladened kids.  For some, it brings warm, fuzzy thoughts because they’ve never really been involved, but they like seeing the pictures of it on the screens.

Pray for the Search

Well, the process of choosing a Minister of Music Search Committee is over, but their work is just beginning.

To my FBC family, please pray diligently and daily for Kenny Clark, Scott Sullivan, Jay Willis, Susan Ezell, Michaelle Harrison, & Donna Tuskan – our Search Committee.

Over the weeks to come, I’m sure that there will be plenty of “suggestions” given to them, and they need to hear from the membership.  But please pray that, above all, they will seek God’s guidance.  This is a vital ministry, and their work cannot be taken lightly or pushed too quickly.  We must (in all things) seek God’s will as we seek to reach those without a saving relationship with Christ and as we seek to build disciples.

Greater things are still to come,


Are you as excited as I am?

I am SOOOO excited about Sunday – and life, in general, at First Baptist Church of Pascagoula.  For all my FBC brothers & sisters, let me share why…

1. Sunday morning we continue our study of some vital keys for Spiritual Growth.  I have been amazed by the comments/results from the first two weeks of the series.  God is at work!  If He can use my puny efforts, I can only imagine what He is going to do through such an amazing church.  Please pray for God’s movement during our 11:00 a.m. worship celebration – pray, asking God to speak through me – pray, asking God to cement truth, build commitment, or convict where needed – pray, asking God to touch hearts as only He can.  And invite a friend.
