Yesterday, Matthew & I had the privilege of hosting a group of 15 area pastors for lunch.  We call this group “Together for the Gospel” because a commitment to keeping the Gospel the “main thing” defines each of our ministries and churches.  Since I’ve been meeting with some of these men for several years, I opened the lunch by sharing the joy I derive from our relationships.  By contrast, when we planted KingsWay 25 years ago, there were few pastors I could link arms with both personally and doctrinally.  I rejoice that today these men, along with many others in our city, are building Gospel-centered churches that we can both commend and pray for.

Karin Kruger kindly provided a hot chili lunch, and I led a lively 90 minute  discussion about the ways we as pastors can honor and care for the women in our congregations so that each experience the Shepherd’s care.  Please join me in giving thanks and praying for other churches in our area who honor God and His Word.  I’m so glad to serve God with other pastors and churches who see one another as co-laborers rather than competitors!

Matthew Williams grew up attending KingsWay and joined the pastoral staff in 2009. God has blessed him and his wife, Aliza, with three rambunctious boys, Ethan, Micah, and Tyler. Matthew did his undergraduate work at the University of Richmond in chemistry and political science, spent a year at the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College, and is nearly finished with his Masters of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
