that supports all people in finding new life in Christ. Here at Itawamba Christian Church, we have a simple hope: to see people come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their Christian faith.
Last year, shortly after we moved to Mississippi, I found myself looking to buy a lawnmower. We hadn’t brought one with us when we moved as we were living in an apartment so mowing was a chore I gave no thought. I have to admit I was a little excited to buy a new lawnmower.Read More
I don’t actually remember the first time I went to Vacation Bible School. I do have a picture of me, about 4 months old, being held among a throng of people posing for a picture to memorialize it.

I have tried to pick up the phone many times in the past two years but then reality sets in and I realize my days of calling my dad are over. He died quietly in his sleep two years ago today. We had made plans to see him later that morning as we always didRead More

Camille and I were relaxing outside and enjoying the gentle rain from the comfort of our covered patio. Suddenly a terrible shrieking soundRead More
One of the spiritual lessons which has remained a challenge for me is patience. Never was this more on display in my life than when I was working as a 26 year old Minister in a very traditional congregation in Southeast Texas. As you might imagine, I, like many idealistic Kingdom workers at that ageRead More
I suppose it would be an understatement to say that social media is influencing the culture around us! Yes, that’s actually a huge understatement. Like so many other innovations when they immerged on the scene, social media envisioned the possibilities of people far and wide being able to connect and for the average person toRead More
One of the realities of living in Northeast Mississippi is that during a significant part of the year the threat of severe weather exists. None would think it odd this time of year for the sky to darken and soon hear the sirens that warn citizens that the possibility of danger is eminent. More thanRead More
