Our church home is obviously Huffman Baptist Church. It is where Keith grew up, where his mom served as Children's Minister for 20+ years, where his sister now serves at Children's Minister. It is where we met and most importantly, where we were married. Huffman Baptist means the world to us!
In 2006, just after we were married, Keith and I felt that we needed a change. Huffman did not have much to offer "newly married couples" and we felt that we needed to worship with couples who were in the same point in life that we were in. We visited several different churches, learned and observed how so many different churches worship and finally made our church home at CrossPoint Church in Argo. We love everything about CrossPoint - the worship, the preaching, the worship, the people, the worship, the many different classes they have to offer, and did I mention, the worship?? Oh my gosh - I love me a B Haskins worship service. There are no words to describe it. It truly is amazing. B has a wonderful way of using music to truly prepare your heart for the message.
Keith and I have made our home there for the past 4 years. It is where we have grown in Christ, it is where I met my ultimate best friend, it is where Keith has worked for the past 4 years, it is where we have raised Noah so far, it is where we made a commitment to the Lord to raise him in a loving and Christian home, and most importantly, it is where Keith has accepted his call to the ministry.
For the last 10 months, almost, Keith has assisted Jennifer in leading Children's worship at Huffman.
In July, the Huffman pastoral search committee began looking at Dr Ron Ethridge as their pastor. I heard him preach at CP one Sunday when he filled in for Ryan and instantly loved his preaching. They called him as their pastor in October. Keith scheduled a meeting with Pastor Ron shortly after he arrived at HBC and he helped us realize God was calling us back to Huffman. We have wanted to move our membership but we just didn't. This past Sunday, Keith, Noah and I went forward at the end of the church service. We made our decision public to move back to Huffman. We are not 100% sure what all God has in store for us there but we are truly excited about it.
We are very excited to be back at home! We are ready to see what God has in store for us and Huffman Baptist Church!!
