OK, I apologize in advance to all my great Kentucky friends, but HOW ABOUT THOSE MOUNTAINEERS?!?!  Final Four Bound!  Can I get an AMEN somebody?

In just a few short days one team will emerge as the National Champion.  It’s pretty obvious who I would like it to be, but that is yet to be decided.  One thing is for sure though, whoever ends up as the champs will have outplayed, outmaneuvered, and outscored the opposing team.  I know, that should go without saying, but hang on, believe it or not, I’m going somewhere with this little sports deal.  This Sunday we celebrate Easter and when I think about Easter it reminds me that Satan’s best was no match for our God.  Satan’s best plan, his best strategy, his best efforts could not defeat the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords!  In fact, long before Adam & Eve messed up in the garden, God already had a plan of redemption in place for fallen man.  Revelation 13:8 describes Jesus as the “Lamb slain before the foundation of the world”.  In other words, before the devil ever created the problem, God already had the answer.  Now that is some kind of God!

If you live in our area, or you just feel like traveling this weekend, I invite you to join us for an awesome Easter Celebration.  We offer two services to choose from; 9 & 11 a.m.  I would love to see you there.

Have a great week and remember,  because HE lives, you can live.  Because HE got up, you can get up.  I’m praying God’s best for you.




Well, here I go, my first stab at a weekly blog.  Definitely uncharted territory for me.  Those that know me are probably wondering what the big deal is, since I can talk for long periods of time for two services on Sunday mornings with no problems, but this is definitely different.   I’m super pumped about it though and hope you will check back often as I (hopefully) bring something of worth to the table each week.

To get started, I am pleased to announce that the brand new believersvictorycenter.com is live!  Remember, it’s a work in progress and we are  building the site as we go, but I think it’s a great start and I am looking forward to all the new features this site will have to offer.  A huge thank you to Jason Cooke and his staff at JCI Media in Winchester, VA for the great work.

This is an important step forward for the Believers Victory Center family as we continually progress with the vision that God has given us for our region and beyond.   As I write this I am more aware than ever of how great our God has been to not only myself, but to this vibrant, amazing church that I love so much.  It’s been an exciting ride so far, one that I plan to write about in weeks to come, and I am confident that even greater things are yet come.  Which brings to mind this awesome song by Bluetree that I will leave you with for this week.

I love you guys and are praying God’s best for you and yours.
