Role: Lead Pastor

I’m a pastor’s kid that survived moving from the Midwest to So Cal between Jr. High and High School. I made a profession of faith at age 5 but grew tremendously when several men invested in my life during my high school years. It was then I sensed God moving me toward ministry. In 1993, I married my high school sweetheart, Melissa. And since then God has given us 5 kids.

In 2005 God brought us to Huntsville. As transplants to the south, we quickly fell in love with the area and now call it home. In my spare time, which isn’t much with 5 kids, I enjoy woodworking and watching football.

Tenebrae 2018
Fri, Mar 30, 2018
And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. - Luke 23:33 (ESV) We will have our annual Tenebrae service. This is a somber service filled with scripture, music, and readings. The solemnity of this service sets the stage for the celebration of the resurrection.
Misson and the Gospel

How does the gospel not just become a personal thing but sends us outward?
Enter the King
Sun, Mar 25, 2018
And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.” - Matthew 21:9–11 (ESV) Our world and the Biblical world are separated by time, geography, and culture. It's hard for us to read our Bibles and understand them sometimes because of the distance. We have tried at times to bridge that gap with flannel graphs, pictures, and movies, but to be honest often those obscure more than they clarify. This distance from the Biblical world comes into focus when we think about leaders and governments. Democracy has ruined us. We choose our leaders, but we set limits on their power. We remove those we don't like for better options. Even today in other places, that isn't the case. In other places your position is in your birthright. Power is clustered in families. At the death of a monarch another is crowned, but is that the worst thing? This week we look at the events of Palm Sunday. To set these in context we will see God's purpose and plans and man's failure throughout the ages. I'd encourage you to read through Matthew 21:1-11 to set the stage for the events we will talk about. We have the privilege to have Maggie Lovell, a professional harpist and Bruce & Pamela Grove's daughter with us. (She will be playing a recital @ Hope in April) Maggie will be playing several pieces and playing with our team. Plan to be there (even a little early!)
Heart Idolatry and Faith

Aren't idols just statues far away? I don't have them? Right?
Final Verdict
Sun, Mar 11, 2018
“None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” Romans 3:10–12 (ESV) Are you a half-empty or half-full kind of person? Are you an optimist or pessimist? Reading through Romans 1-3 you would think that Paul is a pessimist? The picture isn't pretty on any side when he considers mankind. However, I don't think he would have seen himself as a pessimist but a realist. He's not positive or negative, he's just describing what is. This week we finish up the final verses of this section, and the picture of our condition doesn't get any better. Take a few minutes to read through Romans 3 to see his description to prepare your heart and mind to worship together.
Repentance

What is a life of repentance?
FAQ - Judgment
Sun, Mar 04, 2018
Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision? Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. -- Romans 3:1–2 (ESV) Romans 2 is rough if you are self-righteous or Jewish. Paul has been cutting off any possible escape routes for these individuals from the wrath of God. Nothing is going to save them - not their morals, or their knowledge, or ethnicity, or their ceremony. It is a full assault with no retreat. All of this raises a few questions. Didn't God choose the Jews as His people? Was that pointless? How does all this judgment display God's glory? If God gets glory from judging people then why would he do anything else? These are important questions that Paul won't leave behind. In Romans 3, he begins by addressing some of them. Take a few minutes to read through Romans 3 to prepare your heart and mind to worship together.
I'm God's Favorite

For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from God. Romans 2:28–29 (ESV) 'God Bless You' says an anonymous stranger after I blew out a thunderous sneeze. It's a weird custom, but in polite company you hear it still uttered. Did you know it has odd, even superstitious origins? In the Middle Ages people had a much more active view of the supernatural world. For some reason, it was believed that a sneeze represented a demonic assault on an individual. (It probably started when someone thought they were cursed for having hay-fever.) The only way to ward off that spirit was with a specially uttered and timely blessing. Thus a custom was born. We might think this is a silly defense to a supernatural onslaught, but we also think other things will shield us from God's wrath. If we go to church, or have a quiet time, or study our Bible, then God will love us. Paul wants to bust through these superstitions as he addresses religious Jews that believe their position and customs will give them a favored status. Take some time to read through Romans 2 and consider why God should shield you from his wrath. What is your defense?
