Sermon for March 22: "Marks for Transformational Trust"

Please join us as we are blessed to have Dr. Rick Curtis take the pulpit and lead us into worship this Sunday. He will be delivering a message entitled, "Marks for Transformational Trust". The Scripture passage will be from the books of Acts 4:1-22.

Synopsis: This message explores the lives of Peter and John before the Sanhedrin and evaluates their actions in light of persecution. It serves as a challenge for us to live--as these early church fathers--as we face a similar cultural situation; the disparity between culture and a life set apart by the cross.

Dr. Curtis is the West Region Mobilizer for the North American Mission Board. He is the Team Leader for NAMB in the thirteen Western United States, American Samoa and Guam. Before coming to NAMB Rick served as Director of Missions for the High Desert Baptist Association north of Los Angeles, the same area in which he was a church planter and pastor. Rick has been married to Alma for 23 years and they have two children: Alyssa, who is 22 years old and a student at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth Texas, and Bryan who is 20 years old and a Junior at California Baptist University in Riverside. Rick and Alma live in Oceanside California.
