I’m back now from a great three-day trip to Morehead City, North Carolina, where I got to participate in a Small Town Jesus conference hosted by my friend Donnie Griggs and One Harbor Church. I love the vision and passion for God’s glory in small places that is so evident in Small Town Jesus. I was excited to lead a breakout session on ‘Joy in Small Places’ and give one of the main conference talks on how ministry in small places can uniquely display the awesome glory of God.
On Sunday, I got to preach twice at the One Harbor location in historic Beaufort, North Carolina (Blackbeard’s ship sank nearby!).
I’m grateful to God for many good friends who are pursuing God’s glory in small towns, help from God to teach and preach, traveling mercies, a church that sends me to do this kind of ministry, Elders who preach so well while I’m away, a wife who serves and blesses me and cares well for our family when I’m away.
God, be big in small places.
