I came across John Mellencamp’s song “Small Town” when I was in college. I have always been a small town guy. Now, by God’s grace, I am a preacher in a small town. And I love it! My wife and I and our little girl are the proud servants of the Lord Jesus Christ and a wonderful congregation. This blog will be about the joys, trials, temptations that we face along the journey while “preaching in a small town.” There is a great line in Mellencamp’s song that says, “Taught to fear Jesus in a small town.” That is my goal: to teach people to love Jesus in our small town, Chester, SC. My prayer is that we will be encouraged in God’s grace as we share together the blessings of following him.
