The Pains of A Pastor

by Baypointe Church

My wife made a very heartfelt and bold statement on Facebook about the hurts of being a pastor/pastor’s wife. You can read it here. Since then, I have had texts, messages, and calls showering us with love and encouragement. I can never say thank you enough. Being a pastor is a tough gig, but I […]

Serve Opportunities

by Baypointe Church

When we moved into our new building a few years ago, we knew that we would soon outgrow it. Going to 2 services was an inevitability, and about a month ago we made the move to 2 services. It’s been a good change, as it has given us much needed room in our Sunday experiences. […]

50 Shades of Opinions

by Baypointe Church

by Baypointe Church

People think I am crazy…again. Why this time? I elected to make the decision to NOT have a service on December 28th. I have been told it is a terrible decision that will hurt the “business” big time. The business? That’s a weird way to look at it….but kinda right.   Church is a very […]

Do Pastors Doubt?

LeBron’ Failure Is A Leadership Reminder

I am a leadership junkie. I listen to podcasts, go to conferences, read books, and hang around other leaders with a desire to grow as a leader. I am also an even bigger basketball junkie. I am a fanatic about Kentucky Basketball . I root for the Orlando Magic. I will watch just about any […]

Big Fat Christian Lie

by Baypointe Church

“Don’t worry, God won’t give you more than you can handle.”   Ever heard this? Did it make you want to punch the person that said it in the face? Perhaps a drop kick to the throat? (Maybe I watching too much Taekwondo with the kids…) Here’s the deal: IT’S A CHRISTIAN LIE. It’s a […]
