A WORD FROM BROTHER JOE

Hey Summit Family,

Hey, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, after 12 days at Kansas Heart Hospital, they moved me three days ago to “Wesley Rehabilitation Hospital”, where they are “putting me through the ringer”, as we would say where I grew up in Kentucky! For those of you who are too young to remember “ringer style washers” you won’t understand what I mean by that statement. Old fashioned washing machines had a piece of equipment attached called a “ringer” that you would run your wet clothes through to squeeze out the excess water! This “rehab” is hard work, and they’re giving me about four hours of it per day!! It’s tough; it squeezes the energy right out of me!
However, it has, certainly, helped me sleep at night, and it’s exactly what I need to get back into fulfilling God’s call on my life! I expect to be here at least ten more days before going home. They ARE, finally, allowing me “15 minutes visits” from individuals other than family members. The facility is at W. 13th St. & Tyler Road and I’m in room # 207. If you want to stop by; if you have the time; I’ll enjoy very much seeing you! However, I know many of you are very busy with jobs and family commitments. Thank you for all the beautiful cards, emails, texts, and calls! I’ve been so blessed by your expressions of love and encouragement! Our Summit family is filled to overflowing with some of the warmest, most sweet spirited people I have ever known! Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being one of your pastors and, even more, your friend!
The last two Sundays I’ve been joining the worship service at Summit by “live-streaming”, and how exciting a time we’re living in as a congregation of our Lord’s Church! Every week attendance is growing and new “first time” visiting families are joining us!! I want to, once again, remind you how important a role YOU PLAY in whether or not they return! Please, go out of your way to greet and welcome them. Your smile, your handshake, your entire demeanor could determine whether or not they come back. Everywhere we go, WE represent Summit Church!!
Pastor John’s sermon this past Sunday was a “Grand Slam” home run!! With my situation these last two weeks, I’m sure you can totally understand how seriously I examined my life in considering “The Dash”; that period of time you live between birth and death! We weren’t responsible for the date we were “born”, and most of us will have nothing to say about when we “die”, BUT what we do with “the dash” we, totally, determine! My tombstone could have easily been chiseled two weeks ago with the dates 1943-2018, but God chose to give me more time to continuing making an impact for Him! What will YOU DO with the time you have left? I’m praying for every reader of these written words. Never forget, I love you, Bro. Joe

We Have Exciting News!

Hey everyone, we have exciting news to share! Summit Church in Wichita Kansas Plants New Church in Corpus Christi, TX!

After much prayer and leadership from the Holy Spirit and with affirmation from the pastoral staff and church leadership, we believe that God has assigned us the task of planting a new church in Corpus Christi, TX. As many of you may know, I pastored there for almost ten years before coming to Wichita twenty years ago. Many people in Corpus believe that there is a need for a Summit satellite/mission church to be developed in that city. I will be the Senior Pastor of both locations and we will be live-streaming our Summit Worship Service to Corpus each Sunday. I will be spending time helping to build the ministry in Corpus and will be preaching there most Wednesday nights. We will live-stream my Wednesday night message back to the Summit campus and offer it as one of our options for one of our Summit Connection Night classes. We have asked Pastor Pat Bullock, who recently moved back to Corpus to serve as one of our Associate Pastors and to help get the church started. Pastor Bobby Graham, who was my Associate Pastor for many years in Corpus, will serve as the Campus Pastor. We are still deciding on a name and a location for the new church plant. I have been thrilled with the excitement and encouragement from our Summit Church family. We, as the Summit Church family, will have many opportunities to partner and minister with our new congregation in Corpus. I am glad to be Senior Pastor where the church takes seriously The Great Commission and is determined to be an Acts 1:8 church. We have exciting times ahead! Contact us if you are interested in serving with us in this new ministry.
