For I have chosen him so that he will command his children and his house after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just.
Gen 18:19 (HCSB)
Welcome to Baptist Dad!
I am glad you stopped by. I'm just a guy who wanted to create a presence on the web that was dedicated to communicating my faith in Christ and revealing two of my favorite identities (Being Baptist and being a dad.) In the process of showing those identities, my other identities will likely rise to the surface as well. (Is there a psychiatrist in the house? LOL) Some of my other identities include: Baptist Husband, Baptist Pastor, Inspirational Photographer, and Christian Author. I am changing different pages at different times, but truthfully, since becoming a pastor I don't get much time to change baptistdad.com around very much. If you want to see something different, contact me and make a suggestion!
My basic philosophy is:
Strong families make
Most of the people I talk to always want to focus on church. But what are churches made of? People! So instead of trying to strengethening the large group, I try to start the strengthening process with people. So, the first step to making stronger families is to Help individuals follow God's path for themselves more closely.
I guess what we are really talking about is Discipleship, so Baptist Dad wants to help you be a better disciple and a stronger Christian.
Most people really just need a few small changes and some fine tuning!
These small changes will start changing your life and lifestyle immediately! They will reverberate through your family then your church community.

Listen: Actual recordings of church services, Teaching seminars, and inspirational speaking engagements that have been recorded in the past.
Look: Pictures I really like that I have taken myself. (Except for ones Baptist Mom took!) You will always find a few pics that never change, but the others go out seasonally.
Cook: A few recipes that have made a real difference in my life, and maybe now in your life too!I have Cajun up for now, but some Mexican will be here before Christmas!
