Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment.
Since the announcement of Jason Meyer’s candidacy for Associate Pastor for Preaching & Vision, others have posted testimonials and information about him. This page will remain active and be updated for the duration of the candidacy, and it will also include information from our own pastors (such as Pastor John’s sermon introduction to Jason Meyer on March 31 and the Q & A session audio with the pastors that followed).
