Remembering July 30, 2008

  On July 30, 2008, the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church of Jacksonville met to call a new pastor. I was one of two names to be considered that Wednesday night. I had mixed emotions. First all of, the momentum was moving toward me being called to Shiloh. Yet I had been in this situation before. And […]

TODAY’S SERMON: “What It Means To Trust In God” (Psalm 27)

It’s the Lord’s Day!

Today, I plan to end our 2014 Summer Psalm Series at the Shiloh Church with a message from Psalm 27, entitled, “What it Means to Trust in God.” The point of the message is that God is worthy of your trust in every situation. Specifically, you can trust God in the good days (27:1-6) and in the bad days (27:7-14).

 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? – Psalm 27:1 (ESV)

Join us for worship at the Shiloh Church at 7:45 or 10:30 AM (EST). Both services will be live streamed.

I had monumental issues going on in my life and ministry that I was preoccupied with. During the summer of 2008, I was engaged in a process that would eventually […]

In Tribute to Pastor Mike Rodgers

It was Memorial Day weekend, 2008. It was my first visit to the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church of Jacksonville. The weekend started that Friday evening with a dinner reception in the church’s dining room. Some people sat smoking me over. To others, I was just another face. That’s what happens when a church is looking […]

A Note of Thanks and Request for Continued Prayer

This has been a difficult week in the life of the Shiloh Church Family. Last week, one of our faithful and beloved pastors, Mike Rodgers, suddenly transitioned from earth to glory. Pastor Rodgers’ passing has left our entire congregation with heavy hearts. Mike was a man of God, a loving shepherd, and a spiritual mentor […]
