A whirlwind weekend

Well, we had a phenomenal weekend this past Sunday as we worshiped God together at Frederick Boulevard in my first Sunday as Pastor. Our worship service was incredibly powerful, and we enjoyed a packed house as well. It was wonderful to see some new families join our fellowship. I believe, though, that my favorite part of the weekend was a charge that I received from Dr. Russel Jones who has been the Interim Pastor at Frederick for the past 14 months. Dr. Jones has been a seminary professor for 38 years and is a veritable dictionary of Biblical information. He is a tremendous resource in our church. While Dr. Jones simply read scripture as a charge, I cannot think of a more powerful reminder of the task and responsibility. I’ve included a video of that portion of the service below if anyone is interested in it.

Micah is a husband to Tracy & a daddy to Grace, Kessed & Haddon. He’s Senior Pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN. Most of all, he’s a debtor to grace.

  1. We are thrilled and thankful that you’re now with us as senior pastor, Micah. God is gracious. I’m also thankful that He gifted us with Dr. Jones over the previous 14 months. After his charge to you, and as he walked down the aisle to his seat, I couldn’t hold back the tears, for in Dr. Jones I see an example of one sold out for Christ who shows that, by the power of God, one never ought to slow down or pull back or step aside, but rather should live a life of yieldedness and service throughout his life. In our service, in the “passing of the torch,” if you will, I saw God’s anointing on an older saint and a younger one, and real passion for the Lord in both of you because of the great love He’s bestowed on you both. In all of this, He gets the glory and we get the richest blessings.

  2. Micah, I looked over at your Mom, as Dr. Jones walked down the aisle and said, “Now that is finishing the race strong…” I only hope that you and I can do as well.

    I love you and it was a great service…the preaching wasn’t bad either.

    Not in the least bit biased.

    Love ya,

  3. God bless you, Micah and Tracy. Remember the three steps of being a pastor.
    1. Preach the whole counsel of God without fear.
    2. Ask God’s blessings to do it.
    3. Repeat steps one and two.
    Adoniram Baptist Church in Abbeville, AL will be praying for you as well as Tina and I. Randy
