Pastor Adam – December 2013

by arbc_admin

How can we make our Christmas less materialistic and more meaningful? Have you asked yourself this question in a while? Someone recently asked me this question. To be honest, it’s not really a question I like answering. You see, I like the material and physical items that represent the Christmas season. My tree is up, […]

Pastor Matt – December 2013

In case you had not heard, Christmas is coming!    Seriously, Wal-Mart and Target reminded us of this … in September.  For some, this is a travesty (“No one should start decorating until after Thanksgiving!”) and for others (yours truly), this is a welcomed sight. When I lived in Florida, we used to drive to Brooksville to go to […]

Pastor Matt – November 2013

Every so often, I’m asked the question, “Pastor Matt, how big do you want our church to grow?” It’s a fair question. I’ve found that some pastors and church members in our American churches… …would love to have a megachurch (1000 or more attendees); or… …would love to stay the size they are so they […]

A Sacred Trust in You and the Word One of the greatest privileges in my life is graduating from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Twenty years ago, in 1993, the trustees of the seminary elected Dr. R. Albert Mohler as the ninth president of the institution, which was founded in 1859. Unknown […]

Hi. My name is Matthew Perry, and I pastor a semi-traditional, multigenerational Baptist church.  Before you say, “This sounds like an AA meeting—are you lamenting your situation?” – far from it! When I interviewed at my current church back in October 2011, one of the questions that was asked me in various ways was basically […]
