Dedication and Hard Work Pays Off!

The Boyz and Their Rings!
Sterling and Regan were water boys for the Semi-Pro Team I played for Earlier this year. They were so faithful - at every game assisting and helping. We traveled to Houston and San Antonio and they were there. In the Cold and in the Heat and even in pouring rain in Houston. We were crowned Conference Champions and we got Championship Rings. Even Sterling and Regan received one. They are so pumped up. I brought it to them at school - they were pumped. Hard work always pays off. Serving others always pays off! It is what live is really all about. Making the dreams of others come to pass. Thanks Sterling and Regan for your hearts to serve. I love you both with all of my heart!

Dad got one too!

TFC North Kicks Off in a BIG Way!

Band on Stage During Worship!

A Total of 268 in Attendance!

Saturday night marked the highly anticipated "First Saturday Night Service". TFC North Opelusas was rockin! Total attendance was 268! Now That's Incredible! AT 5pm, I counted about 35 people and I knew all of them. At 5:45 there were about 60 people and I knew 55 of them. By 6pm there were over 200 people and I only knew half of them. Meaning, we had around 100 people that were new to TFC. Everything was excellent. From Sound, to set up,to parking lot, to music, lights, media, preaching, ushers, everything was first class. Just about everyone said that they would be back next Saturday and bring friends along with them. We had a great alter call and 8 people responded and committed life to Christ. At one point in service, we had to bring out every chair we had. To all of you that have put in time and work to make this possible - Thank You! You are true servants of Christ. I invite you to come and be a part of one of our exciting Saturday Night Services real soon.

Like Father Like Son - One More Time!

Regan ready to take the field. After practice talk!
The Blue Team "Rubbing it up"
Fire in his eyes! Prayer as a team!
March of this year I played tackle football for a local semi-pro team. It was a great experience, one that I will never forget. What was really cool was that the 2 main water boys were my sons, Regan and Sterling. We got to experience "Dad Playing" all together on the field. Well, this year marks their first year playing tackle football. Now I get to experience their first season together with them. Sterling started practice 4 weeks ago and Regan started yesterday. They are so excited. Kind of like I was in March before our first game. Sterling has his first game of the season this Saturday in Opelusas against Westminster and Regan will have a game later this month. More details about that to come later. I love doing life together as a family. Boyz, I wish you the best this season! Go Challengers!
Regan working on technique. All 33 players fired up for practice!

This past Saturday we had our first outreach to the community of Opelusas. We had hot dogs, fun jumps, water slides and tons of fun. Our goal was simply to let people know what we are about - GIVING! That is our whole purpose in starting this new campus to this area - Simply to serve them and their needs. Thanks to all the volunteer's that helped make this event successful. You are the heart and soul of TFC! One week away until our first service at the new campus. We are really excited about what is fixing to happen. Get involved, Serve, Give, and Go out. Thank you TFC for being True Disciples!
