Pride and Pastoral Ministry

God despises pride. Pride usually leads into a terrible fall. Only Satan can convince us that we, by our own strength, have accomplished anything good spiritually. If through our talents, gifts, and opportunities anything spiritually good has been accomplished, we must always give God the glory. From whom did we secure our talents? Who has ultimately arranged our opportunities? Who is the only One who can open men’s hearts?

I'm amazed by God's grace. Lindsay and I were married in 2001 and we are blessed with four children. I've been in ministry since 2001. Prior to starting Anchor Baptist Church in 2014, it was my joy replant the First Baptist Church in Miami, Arizona.
