Expository Thoughts in the Newspaper

I never thought i would make the front page of the Newspaper but in God’s providence I did (yesterday).  You can see the full article on line at http://www.journalstandard.com/homepage/x1600194089/Meet-your-Pastor-New-pastor-joins-First-Baptist-Church

Here is the part i wanted to share with our faithful readers…

He also blogs online at “Expository Thoughts,” where he connects with other pastors around the nation for comments and advice.  With a church commitment to expositional preaching, Kolstad said it can take up to 15 hours of preparation and study to write sermons.  “Exposition [preaching] is unpacking what a particular text means and apply it to our congregation,” he said.  First Baptist Church does a blended worship of traditional hymns and contemporary praise choruses. “Our life is really the church,” he said.

    Wonderful article! I check out the JS every few weeks to see how my former city is doing and it wonderful to see God working again at First Baptist.

    Not too many churches in Freeport have a respect and love for God’s Word.

    We will be keeping your ministry in prayer. Enjoy Krape Park!

    It’s great to see you smiling at the ministry before you. Praise the Lord for His answered prayer in giving you a congregation to be a shepherd over that appreciates expository preaching.
