lol yeah 20 years 1st and only church.

Longevity is where it's at!

We've had two of our four children here and our first two grandbabies.

I'm not sure which meant more to me, the number of people that I had baptized who were present or the card from Children's Church that read "Best pastor a boy could ask for". lol
What we need here is a good revival! lol

one love
Woohoo!

Brother that is awesome!! I am very happy for you and I applaud your dedication to the ministry and the LORD.
You have proven that faithfulness and thinking "outside the box" is good thing.
I often brag on your church and have never been there. When my sister in law says " yeah the COGOP motorcycle crew was in Murphy today"
I always reply yeah thats a friend of mine and thats what his church parking lot looks like :lol:
(she doesn't say it negatively)
Anyway I am happy for you and your family! God has been good to you and I am so glad you never stopped reaching out to others that dont look "churchy" I respect that so much.
I remember Pastor Gary using your church in one of his sermons I heard talking about this.

Sit back , reflect on where you started and what has taken place and then plan for the LORD to bless even more.

200 PEOPLE I WANT TO SEE A PICTURE OF YOU ON THAT ROOF AGAIN!!!!! Deal? lol

God bless you

one love
Woohoo!

Response: Ha ha! Here's the kicker. I went up on the roof after we reached 100 on a regular Sunday. The Praise and Worship team is going up for the 200 mark.

We have broken record attendances with almost 300, 296, but our best regular Sunday morning attendance is 139, that was this month. YES!!!!

When I say regular Sunday I mean, no fish fry, Christmas, special guest, Mother's Day, etc.

And, just think. The Lord did all that without using Phil Robertson. I mean, you had the beard before most of us ever heard of him!! :)
