Hello Texas Baptists I do want to thank our BGCT 2nd Vice-President, Byron Stevenson, Pastor of The Fort Bend Church (www.thebend.org) in Sugar Land, for preaching at our the August Chapel Service here in our building.  We are blessed to have leaders like Byron serving here in Texas.  Also, I want to thank Joseph Parker, Pastor of the David Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Austin (www.davidchapel.org), and Executive Board Director for allowing me to preach in his absence not long ago.  This is a wonderful Church doing great work.   Full Story »


Hello Texas Baptists! I begin by thanking the good folks at FBC Bryan, where David Higgs is the Pastor (www.fbcbryan.org) for allowing me to spend a few days with them leading an Adult Bible Conference. It was a blessing for me and, I hope for them. I had the joy of serving as their Interim pastor a couple of years ago. FBC has been working in Estonia for 20 years and while I was there I was able to meet the President of the Estonia Baptist Federation who was in Bryan to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of cooperative work.
