Worship. It’s a word thrown around churches all the time, but what is worship, anyway? Worship is an act of religious devotion usually directed towards a deity. An act of worship may be performed individually, in an informal or formal...
"Come, let us worship and bow down;" - Psalm 95:6a
Parents pushed and shoved their children forward, hoping the famous man would bless them. His assistants, thinking they were protecting Him from unwanted demands, tried to shoo the kids away, but this important man became indignant with His assistants....
"But Jesus said, 'Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.'" Matthew 19:14
Everyone loves a winner – especially when that winner is an underdog. It’s the feeling of overcoming tons of obstacles and silencing the critics to accomplish the impossible. Jesus was familiar with obstacles and especially critics. In fact, it...
“But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. 'Don’t be alarmed,' he said.

Many who are part of our Right From The Heart
family may not know that I have been the Senior
Pastor of Johnson Ferry Church in Marietta,
Georgia, for the last 37 years. A few months ago,
I felt the Lord leading me to begin the search
process for my successor, which as I’m sure you
can imagine, wasn’t an easy decision to make!
But, it was clear to me that God was the source
of this change, so the church began the process of
searching for God’s man to follow me in the role
of Senior Pastor. I’m very pleased to say that Clay Smith
has affirmatively answered the call to become the next Sr. Pastor at JFBC.
“So,” you ask, “what happens to Right From The
Heart after you step down from pastoring the
church?” Well, I can assure you of one thing:
I STILL PLAN TO LEAD RIGHT FROM THE HEART!
I’m excited that I will have more time to focus
on our mission to “Reach and disciple people
for Jesus Christ through the use of media.” God
has blessed this ministry in so many ways, and I
know that through your continued prayers, your
financial support, and our dedication to be good
stewards of what God has graciously allowed us
to do, we will be able to reach even more people
with the Good News of Jesus Christ!
In addition, I will be adding new aspects to our
ministry at RFTH in leading Bible study tours to
Israel and Paul’s missionary journeys, as well
as mentoring younger pastors. I humbly ask for
your prayers for all of us at Right From The Heart
as this transition takes place. Thank you and
may God bless each of you!
