A Word From the Pastor
Growing up in Ponca City, both my wife Cheyenne and I developed a love for this community and a desire to reach people here who are far from God. Even from the time we were teenagers growing in our faith in Christ, we knew that God had special plans for this city.
I moved away for a time to pursue an education at Oklahoma Baptist University and then my masters at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX. Even during that time, Ponca City weighed heavily on our hearts.
In 2010, God brought us back to this great city to serve as Minister to Students at our home church Northeast Baptist. Over the last several years working in this ministry, we have been able to touch the lives of hundreds of Ponca City teenagers. The more we saw students coming to the Lord, the more we realized that their families were still far from God. In fact, the community was full of unchurched families that were not being reached by traditional church methods.
The burden to reach these families became ever increasing and Cheyenne and I began to pray about how God could use us to reach this city on a larger scale. It was at that time that God clearly gave us a vision to plant a new kind of church that would begin to reach these unreached people in Ponca City and the surrounding community.
I hope the information you find on our website will help you to catch our vision for NewPoint Church and lead you to partner with us however the Lord leads.
