This weekend, the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church celebrates 142 years of God’s faithfulness. Praise the Lord for all that He has done, is doing, and will do through and for the Shiloh Church! I love my church!

Today was our church picnic. Sunday, we will celebrate together in corporate worship.

I am beyond excited that Dr. Fred Luter of the Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans, and the first African-American President of the Southern Baptist Convention, will be our guest speaker this weekend.

Thank you for your prayers, notes of encouragement, and offers of support in my nomination for president of the SBC Pastors’ Conference in 2018! Here are a few articles about my nomination…

It was a joy to speak at the John A. Reed Jr. Conference on Preaching & Pastoral Ethics in Oklahoma City. It was also good to see Evangelist Manuel Scott Jr., who took a step of faith into full-time itinerant ministry some thirty years ago and is still going strong for Christ.

God is doing a great work at the Fellowship Christian Church in Salem, Virginia. I am grateful for the opportunity to speak at the Reach Out Celebration (Missions Conference) this weekend.
