4 years as Pastor of ISBC

Yesterday marked four years of my being pastor of Immanuel Southern Baptist Church in Wagoner, OK. 

I can hardly believe it's already been four years.

Sunday was, perhaps, one of the best Sunday's I've had in the first 4 years here.  A little girl was saved during Sunday School and a man was saved during the morning worship.

Not during the invitation, but during the sermon.

Our congregation has grown and is going through a few growing pains.  My first Sunday, we had 25 people in attendance.  There were 84 here Sunday morning and 70 here Sunday evening!

We had an extremely successful Vacation Bible School this year where several children were saved and several new families are among us!

We took children to children's camp and youth to Falls Creek.

Some of our Sunday School classes are running out of space.

People seem to be genuinely enjoying each others' fellowship.

People see the need to be involved in more than just "going" to church.

God is at work at Immanuel Southern and I am humbled to be part of that and pray that I don't get in the way!
