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.

Hear this, you elders; give ear, all inhabitants of the land! Has such a thing happened in your days, or in the days of your fathers? Tell your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children to another generation. (Joel 1:2-3, ESV) We are confused about what God is like. We tend to split him down into parts. And to be honest, there are some parts about him that at best confuse us, or at worst, offend us. We like to think of God in all the most pleasant ways. But when we read through the scriptures, we bump against descriptions and actions of God that don't fit neatly in our categories. Often times, we would rather not think about those attributes of God because they are unpleasant and are the fodder for angry, backwoods preachers. But they are there in scripture. So what do we do? Over the next two weeks, we are going to wrestle with who God is by looking at the small, minor prophet book of Joel. This book describes God and his actions in judgment. But, in the midst of it, we also find that God's judgment not only describes him but shows other angles of him as well. Kevin Mays will be taking this time to breakdown this book. I want to encourage you to read through Joel several times over the coming weeks so that as Kevin explains and teaches the passages, you will be familiar with the text.
A People of Hope

As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:4-5, ESV) Imagine that you were separated from everything you knew. Gone were friends, family, and familiar surroundings. You would wonder where to find stability and support. You would fear difficulties, wondering if anyone would know or care. I think this is often the reason that, when people immigrate from one country to another, they tend to find people of their own ethnicity to live and work around, for some sense of familiarity and family. In 1 Peter, we are called a people without a country. We are exiles and strangers to this world. Gone is the familiar, replaced with foreign. But God says you are not alone. In fact, not only are you not alone, but you have been called into a new people. A people built with a purpose and plan. This week we will see the People of Hope as we explore 1 Peter 2. Take some time to read through this chapter and pick out all the different titles used to identify God's people. And this Sunday, Kevin will be opening this section of scripture to us.
