Proclaiming God's Word...Extending His Love

Pastor and Staff

Rev. Travis Henderson

Pastor

 

OBJECTIVE

 
My objective is to serve this congregation as their Pastor to help open doors to hope and wholeness with the congregation, the lay leaders, and the staff; to faithfully preach and teach the Word of God, and to train believers to study the word of God, not just read it.  I hope to encourage, lift up, and love people as Christ did. 
 

APPROACH TO MINISTRY 

 Preaching

 
          Expository preaching is always biblical, and intentional. Wednesday and Sunday services vary in length. I base all sermons on God’s printed Word, the Bible, and God’s living Word, Jesus. I lift up God, the Father, Jesus, the Savior, and the Holy Spirit, our guide and comforter. Preaching and teaching is mostly expository. Currently, Sunday morning messages are from the Gospel of Mark, and Sunday night messages are from stories about the bible we heard as children, now looking at them as adults. We also have corporate prayer time and bible study on Wednesday evenings.
 

The Morning Worship Service

 
     The Sunday Morning Worship must help you, the worshiper, experience God. The service bridges time-honored worship with today; youth to tradition; and those not part of the church to the loving church of God.  The morning service is a blended worship service.  All are welcome in our church.  You will not be out of place by what you are wearing, the color of your skin, or where you work.  We are all children of God and made in his image.
 

The Evening Worship Service

                                               
     The evening worship service is a time to help believers grapple with discipleship issues. Its purpose and goal is to lead worshipers to discover Biblical truths about issues of life, develop community throughout the church, and to expand the kingdom of God one person at a time. During this service we have a more in depth bible study in which members can ask question and offer thoughts on the topic of study.
 

Leadership of People

           
            Shared leadership style builds a trusting relationship between pastor, staff, and people in pursuit of the Great Commission’s objectives. Building on the strengths of all the members of the body maximizes the potential for God to accomplish His purpose and continually buildup the church. A healthy church has a trusting relationship between Pastor and people in pursuit of the Great Commission in which both achieve greater than expected.
