We cannot give God enough praise and adoration! He continues to amaze with His majestic presence and infinite grace. As leaders and pastors we should point to Him always! We should see His love and Grace even as we fight against our enemies, His enemies. Praise God when the going gets tough. Praise God when you are picking yourself up from the last blow you received. Praise God when your sheep are taking a big bite out of you. Praise God when you know that you have been obedient to God and yet the ones you love are casting stones your way. Praise God when the one you have struggled with the most comes to Jesus on bended knee and seeks forgiveness. Praise God when the day is ended and it is time to rest. Praise God that you are chosen to be in the battlefield because God could see your valiant heart!
We praise God that we have seen many Pastors from America to Africa reach up in one accord to our Lord Jesus!
Let us be thankful that Fellowship Baptist in Valrico Florida and 1st Baptist in Eagle Lake Florida have each had terrific Pastor Luncheons. On February 16th Fellowship Baptist served a tremendous roast beef and pork combination to 40 plus hungry pastors and friends. Each pastor took home a Book by Richard Mull and a quart of strawberries from Billy Williams. Fred Harrold gave an inspiring yet challenging message.
On February 23rd 1st Baptist Eagle Lake served steak smothered in gravy plus the trimmings. They had a fabulous dessert table. Every pastor, wife and friend left with smiles. Kevin Clark from the Oasis church spoke a word of encouragement that charged us all up!
In March there are Pastor luncheons scheduled at the Wells Funeral Home Event Center in Plant City Florida (Mar. 15) and at the Word Alive Church in Lakeland Florida (Mar.29).
Please mark your calendar for APRIL 27th. our first Pastors conference will be from 9-4 at the Champions Church in Winter Haven Florida.
