Ask most 20-somethings to name their biggest fears and you’ll notice a few themes: career uncertainty, financial pressures compounded by giant student debt, relationship stress. After a few years, it’s not uncommon for that once idealistic, world changer mentality...
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
It is relatively easy for us to recognize sin in one another. It is much more difficult to recognize it in ourselves. Yet Paul writes, “none of us is righteous, not even one.” We tend to think of ourselves...
"There is no one righteous, not even one." - Romans 3:10
What if God Himself asked you, “Why should I let you into My heaven?” How would you answer? I have used that question for many years to determine someone’s understanding of salvation. Some say, “Well, that’s a pointless question, because...
"Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings..."

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 is in the process of
searching for God’s man to follow me in the role
of Senior Pastor. Of course, we don’t know how
long this process will take, but we are sure that God’s timing is perfect.
“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!
