Crystal and I had a wonderful day in worship and fellowship with the Concord Church yesterday. Actually, we have a good weekend here – greatly enjoying the time we were able to spend with Pastor Bryan and Stephanie Carter. We really appreciate and were encouraged by their warmth, kindness, and hospitality.
Even though I have been deeply influenced by the preaching and ministry of the late Dr. E.K. Bailey, this was my first time ever worshiping at Concord. And it was a great experience. Pastor’s Carter loving and focused leadership is evident in so many ways. And I learned a lot by just watching how things operate at Concord on Sunday morning.

I believe my message was well received by the congregation. And, of course, Dr. Rudolph McKissick Jr. absolutely preached the house down in the second service.

Continue to remember the family and ministry of Pastor Bryan Carter in your prayers. This is truly one of the “good guys” (And God knows we need more of these in the ministry!!!) and one of the truly great churches of our day. May their dreams be even greater than their memories!
