Kevin Mays
Role: Youth Pastor

I grew up in church in a small town called Hamilton, Alabama. I made a profession of faith at age five in the church I grew up in. At an early age, my father fostered in me a hunger for God's word. When I reached my teenage years, my youth pastor pushed me to dive deeper into my faith when I told him I was wrestling with the call of ministry. One summer at a youth camp, I submitted to the call of ministry at age fifteen. I joined the Army National Guard at age 17. After graduating high school, I attended Bevill State Community College to begin working on my degree. I met my wife Lauren while attending Bevill State and we now have two boys. I was called overseas to Kuwait to serve for a year, returned home, and moved to Huntsville to work while I finished my degree at Athens State University. We have lived in this area for six years, and it is now home to us. I enjoy watching my two boys play sports, and in my spare time I like to play my guitar and watch sports.

Shame
Sun, Jul 17, 2016
Duration:36 mins
You have made us the taunt of our neighbors, the derision and scorn of those around us. You have made us a byword among the nations, a laughingstock among the peoples. (Psalm 44:13-14 ESV) To recall our memories is to often times rehearse our regrets and shame. We see our failures with greater clarity than our successes. Sometimes we hear from others that in order to be truly free we need to abandon shame and move forward. But is that the best? Is there something between wallowing in our shame and forgetting about our mistakes and sin? Could there be something redemptive in shame? This week, Kevin will be opening up Psalm 44 and dealing with the emotion of Shame. I encourage you to take some time before Sunday to read through this Psalm.
Fear
Sun, Jun 19, 2016
Duration:54 mins
For dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet— I can count all my bones— they stare and gloat over me; (Psalm 22:16-17 ESV) The future. Getting sick. Violent people. Something happening to my children. Money. Loss of a friend or spouse. There are a million things to fear. When my mind begins to spin up on these fears, often we can’t pull it back. Our fears can overtake us. Overwhelming and paralyzing us. What do we do with fear? Is there any aspect of it that is good?
Role of Christ's Resurrection in our Sanctification and Future Glorification
Sun, May 01, 2016
Duration:47 mins
“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. - (Colossians 3:1-2 ESV) Life seems to move so quickly. Once an event passes, it seems to also fade quickly from memory. My wife reminded me this week that Easter was a month ago. It would be easy to think that we gave the resurrection its deserved passing thought and that it can now be filed until next year. But for Christians, the resurrection is at least a weekly reality. We should gather each Sunday intentionally to point us back to the day that death died. This week I will be preaching out of town. But Kevin will be opening up the significance of the resurrection, not just to seminary professors and theologians, but to every believer. Take some time before Sunday to read through Colossians 3 which connects resurrection and its power to our everyday Christian walk. Plan to be there.
