The Master’s storyteller in Port Neches, TX Nov. 16-19

I absolutely love this carving that stretched across the front of the organ pipes in the sanctuary of FUMC Port Neches.  This community is in what is known as the Golden Triangle of southeast TX. I have a lot of cousins living in this part of the world who migrated over from south Louisiana. My great, great, great grandfather established the little town of Indian Bayou, near Lafayette. Over the years, many from the Hoffpouire, Spell, Perry, Forman, Morton, and Sarver families have settled in southeast TX.

This was my first time to work with Rev. Wesley Welborn.  As we visited, we discovered we had crossed paths several times through the years, but had not met.  He told me the story of how he had gotten interested in using contemporary worship in his church.  Years ago, he went to a Congress on Evangelism  in Nashville, TN, and heard a band playing in a worship setting for the first time. It turns out that I was leading worship that year with the help of my family.  My sons were the musicians who made up that band.  Truly a small world!

The Master’s storyteller in Lumberton, TX Nov. 9-12

worship5 Woodcrest UMC in Lumberton, TX is a happenin’ place! Rev. Gary Masterson is a long time friend.  I led a series of revival services for him when he and I were both young.  The friendship has remained strong across the years.  He was a gifted art teacher who was called into ministry and is one of the most gentle men I’ve ever known. I knew we were in for a great time when we pulled into the church parking lot and were met by a cheering crowd!  How much fun is that! welcome

The Master’s storyteller in Canyon, TX October 19-22

crowd2   FUMC Canyon is a busy small college town just south of Amarillo, TX, in the panhandle.  Rev. Rick Enns is doing an amazing job in this community and it shows in the way this church is reaching out in ministry.  After setting up on Saturday, he showed us a video of a recent baptism of a college student.  It was incredibly moving.  I knew we were about to share in some great days of renewal together.
