Meet the Pastor
I was born in Spring, a town just north of Houston, TX. From the time Jesus changed my life to the present, I have had an overwhelming desire to preach and teach the gospel. Preaching God’s Word is the most exciting and rewarding privilege God has blessed me with!
To be honest, being a pastor is a difficult role. The Bible says we are “watching over souls” (Heb. 13:17). Who wants that responsibility? For me personally it has been the message of God’s redemptive love through the cross of Jesus. We are all on a narrow path, and sometimes worried about veering off. But my hope and strength is the same as yours: Jesus.
Why I Became a Pastor
I was called to the ministry shortly after Christ changed my life. I have one of those “wild and crazy” testimonies from drugs and crime to ministry and Jesus. My conversion was so dramatic I remember my family and friends holding their breath to see if it was real. Thank the Lord, Christ reigns! But my testimony means very little in the big scheme of things. My testimony does not redeem souls. My call to be a pastor is compelled by the testimony of Jesus and His work on the cross. I am a pastor because Jesus is at the right hand of God, and I’m a herald of that soul-saving truth.
What I see in this Community
Redeemer Christian Fellowship is on a mission. We are fulfilling the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20). Our hope and prayers are rooted in the character and nature of God. Our desire is to do God’s will.
We believe that the church’s first mandate is “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ …” (Eph. 4:12).
We believe if we are faithful to one another by teaching God’s powerful Word, encouraging and equipping each other along the way, then making disciples of all nations flows out of our commitment to God and to one another. Jesus says the world will know us by the love we display for one another (John 13:35).
We are on the mission to turn the world upside down with the love of Christ (Acts 17:6).
In My Free Time…
I love reading. I can’t get enough reading! But I also love working out, hiking, fishing, and playing with my German Shepherd, Blaze Reynolds. (Yes, he has a last name, my last name. He’s family.) I love my wife to death. I love spending time with her. I can’t get enough of my wife! (I love my wife more than I do my reading.) She is the most amazing person in all the world. (Jesus is in heaven, or he would vie for first place. Ok. Ok. He would get first place.)
What my Relationship with God means to both my Family and Me
God and His Son are the central focus of our family. The truth is that as a family we could love Him more, serve Him more, exalt Him more. But our ultimate aim doesn’t waiver. We aim to please God through Jesus. My wife and I are raising my younger brother. He’s a teenager. (Whoa!) He loves the Lord. All three of us are on a path to glorify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
