Be Strong and Courageous

Dear PC Family,

It is hard to believe I am soon coming up on 30 years of ministry. Through the years, God has been incredibly faithful both in great times and difficult times. When I first began pastoring, I felt that God gave me this verse to encourage me and I have taken it as my life verse.

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

I wanted to encourage you today with the article that was written up in a national newsletter a few months ago regarding my story. Be sure to open the attached file.

Thank you for your prayers. We are overjoyed to see that God is using this trial to give us a platform that we have never had before to share the Good News.

Pastor Derek
