“Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:15-16 NIV

Jason Phillips, Associate Pastor of Administration

  • Please pray this verse for Jason: “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24 NIV

  • Praise for the 3 successful basketball mission trips that Jason participated in this summer. Continue to pray for wisdom and guidance as the team continues work on Columbus 365, for cooperation as people and events are being moved around and for the construction workers to be safe and thorough as they work.
