The Beginning of Good Things!

Leah and I are beyond excited to be starting our new work with World Evangelism! It has been a whirlwind since we were introduced to this opportunity a few weeks ago. This work will be known as “Into God's World.” We are in the beginning stages of working to create a comprehensive Bible Class curriculum for all ages from the cradle to the grave. These materials will provide the foundation in Biblical knowledge and practical skills to equip each person for the work of the Church. While most materials available today were written by denominational think tanks, the materials form Into God’s World will be written by Christians and will emphasize those doctrines that distinguish the Gospel of Christ and His Church from any other gospel or religion. These materials will also be motivational, instilling a passion for the Lord’s work, and providing the tools to do the Lord’s work.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with this work, or in supporting us as we turn our full attention to it, we would love to hear from you.

This new work has not slowed down my preaching schedule by any stretch of the imagination! We have been keeping a tight calendar traveling about sharing our work with different congregations, and also filling in for preachers here and there. If you would be interested in having me come and speak among your local congregation, please let me know. Of course, Leah is also available to speak to the ladies.

Meanwhile, we have continued working to bring sound and high quality books to the Church and the world. Hopkins Publishing  now has eight titles in print, including this year’s book for the Annual Southwest Lectures, and an outstanding volume on apologetics by Kevin Cauley. You can keep up with the latest news from Hopkins Publishing by liking us on Facebook,or following us on Twitter and Google +

It is a great privilege to live by the Gospel.  I am continually grateful for the kindness of the brethren and the grace of our God that I am privileged to serve in this capacity.  I am still working toward my Graduate Diploma in Christian Education from the Southwest Graduate School of Bible.  

There is always much work to be done and many souls that need to be won for our Lord.
