Wow…what a great start!

Wow! We had an amazing start to our new Saturday night service! Close to 400 people showed up for this first service to worship, celebrate, and hear what the bible has to say about our weird families! It was an awesome start to an exciting new worship opportunity!

It was also a great start to our series, "Help, My Family is Weird!" We began by looking at God's original intention for families. Many people caught a new vision for what their family is supposed to be (and still can be!) according to God's word. If you missed this message you can watch the video or listen to the audio by visiting and clicking on the "sermons" link.

This weekend we're going to continue by looking at marriage as the first step in God's design for families. There will be important insights for every one of us, married or single, as we unpack this primary building block of the family. You don't want to miss this message! Maybe you have a friend that could use some encouragement in this area.

I'll see you this weekend,

Loss of a fellow pastor

Isaac Hunter

Isaac Hunter

Isaac Hunter was the son of pastor Joel Hunter from Orlando Florida. A number of years ago, Isaac planted a church in Orlando out of his dad's church.  In the process, He affiliated with our denomination, the Missionary Church.  Isaac and I spent time together at several conferences and retreats and were in a pastoral fellowship group together. I really liked him...he was a very cool guy. But somehow, He got lost along the way.

About a year ago, he resigned from his church after it was discovered that he was involved in an affair with a staff member. And, this week, He took his own life.

This is a tragic end to a promising life and call to ministry. As a pastor, I find this devastating. I can only imagine the pain that his family is enduring. My heart goes out the them. They are good people.

This tragedy serves as a warning and a call to prayer. Any of us has the potential to fall, apart from close and constant communion with the Father.  In unguarded moments, deception and sin can find a foothold and ultimately destroy even the best among us.

Please pray for the Hunter family.
