Happy New Year!

Dear DSC Family,

I am entering my 27th year as a Pastor here and by now I hope you know how much I love you, pray for you, and want God’s best for you. You also know that through the years and through many struggles, weaknesses, and fears, God has been making me into a man of faith, so when I talk to you about growing, sowing, and going in faith, it is not theory or just words to me. It’s personal and profound.

In every step that I’ve led you to take by faith, I’ve watched you grow and become stronger, better, and more beautiful men and women of God. I could not be more proud of you. I am the most blessed man on earth to have the privilege of being your pastor.

2017 is upon us and this year is a year that will require great faith as we choose to pursue God’s purposes and plans for us.  This is an important moment, a sacred time, a time to make another faith choice.  It really is a simple choice…Will we be comfortable with where we are as a church and just ride out our existence or will we choose to step into a new era in our church’s history as God calls us to become a Great Commission Movement? 

I am not ready to pull back into comfortable, boring safety, and I don’t believe that is what you want either!  God has recently reminded me that our best days are still ahead of us, because as long as our hearts are beating it means that God is not finished with us! This is going to be a great year.  Say it out loud, hear yourself say it and believe it because it is the truth.

I am asking you to join me, to step out in high risk faith in every area of our lives. 
  • Step out in faith and pray for, invest in and invite people to relationship with God and His family.
  • Choose to put aside time for prayer, bible reading and journaling.
  • Continue to give sacrificially and faithfully as you fulfill your Daring Faith pledges.
  • Join us in our 28 Days of Prayer and Fasting.
