Welcome to my website. I had the joy to Pastor of Shawnee Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky for 37 years. God blessed the ministry with thousands being saved and baptized. The inner city ministry grew from an average attendance of 60 to a multi-ministry church with over 1,200 attending from 50 zip codes. Many campaigns averaged over 2,000 with a high attendance day of 3,500. After four years of traveling in full time Evangelism, with great help and blessing from the Lord, I am presently serving as Administrative Pastor of Greater Vision Baptist Church in Owensboro, KY with Pastor Tim Russ. I am still traveling, preaching and “Doing the Work of an Evangelist” on a more limited basis. Nancy and I are having the time of our life with motivation from my life verse: Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. Jn 15:8
A BRIEF UPDATE
27 months ago the Lord led me in a very specific way to leave full time Evangelism and assist Pastor Tim Russ at Greater Vision Baptist Church in Owensboro, KY. At the time I had been averaging over 50 meetings a year (58 in 2013). I made a one year commitment at the time and agreed to reduce my traveling to one week per month. With a few off night meetings we averaged around 15 to 20 per year. The one year commitment where I served as Administrative Pastor stretched into 27 months. I can’t tell you how blessed and happy Nancy and I have been working with Pastor Tim Russ, Mrs. Marty and the friends we have made there.
THE NEW ASSIGNMENT – NORTH HARRISON BAPTIST CHURCH
Earlier this month the Lord led me to accept the pastorate at a small country church in Ramsey, Indiana. Our first Sunday will be April 3rd. The North Harrison Baptist Church a struggling rural church has been declining for 10 years due to the pastor’s declining health including a battle with cancer. It will be a great challenge. I am excited about working with the faithful members and the former pastor Paul Powell who will be Pastor Emeritus who have held the ropes and kept the ministry from dying.
GOSPEL POWER BAPTIST CHURCH
I am also delighted to have Gospel Power Baptist church, a growing young church, join with us. Their Pastor, Shane Rodgers will serve as our Co-Pastor. They will bring much talent and initial new life to the ministry. You can visit our new web site http://www.NorthHarrisonBC.org to get a sense of our direction and know better how to pray for us.
WHAT ABOUT EVANGELISM?
I have called several of the pastors and they graciously allowed me to cancel Sunday meetings or exchange them for week nights. For the most part I will only be scheduling meetings on week nights during this first year as pastor.
I do request our friends to pray for us. It is exciting to be taking a new step of faith. Pray that God will give us wisdom and power to rebuild a Fundamental, Independent, Soul Winning, Separated, King James, New Testament Church.
