December Update from Dr. Greg Heisler, Senior Pastor

I was reading Psalm 118 this morning, and I took some time to put into practice verses 28-29: "You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God; I will extol you. Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever" As I start my ministry at Madison Avenue, I am filled with gratitude. I think when the Lord answers our prayers for direction, clarity, and provision, we should be in awe of Him and extol Him for His faithfulness. We should praise Him with grateful hearts for leading and guiding and providing throughout this process of bringing us together. God always has a plan for His Church!

I am eternally grateful that God has saved me and made me His own through Jesus Christ. I am grateful He has led me to serve the body of Christ known as Madison Avenue. I am grateful the Search Team was led by the Holy Spirit to pursue me. I am grateful the Lord spoke to my heart throughout this process to draw me toward Madison Avenue. I am grateful that on October 29, 2017, the body of Christ called me to be their new pastor. I am grateful I have the privilege of preaching the greatest gospel anyone could ever preach, for the greatest glory it could ever bring to our God! I am grateful God has made me your new shepherd! And I am grateful for what the Lord has in store for us, for how the Lord will use us in the days ahead to see lives changed by the gospel

With love and great anticipation,
Pastor Greg
Psalm 86:11
