It is my sincere joy and honor to be the sixth pastor of the historic Metropolitan Baptist Church. The trust you have placed in my pastoral care is humbling, to say the least. With God's help, I will do my very best to live up to that trust; therefore, I covet your prayers and support as we begin this journey together.
This is an exciting time in the life of our church. As we begin a new year that is full of hope and possibilities, we should reflect on our rich history and heritage as a church family and offer thanks to God for all He has done.
For the past 37 years, Metropolitan was guided by the sturdy and steady hands of one of God's generals of the faith, Dr. H. Beecher Hicks, Jr. His great leadership and legacy will long be remembered. Thank you, Dr. Hicks, for the faithful and forward thinking service you rendered to this church!
Moreover, we look forward to seeing what God can and will do in the future. Metropolitan is confronting a time of great challenges, and we intend to meet those challenges with the help of our Lord, who is mighty to save, and for whom nothing is impossible. As people of faith, we are encouraged not to fix our gaze on the size of the giant in front of us, but to focus our faith on the strength of our God who is with us! God is bigger and stronger than any giant we may face.
