Rejoicing in Truth is the name I have given to my Bible teaching ministry—including my podcast, my book imprint, and my website. The name comes from John’s third letter and the great joy he expressed when he found that his followers continued to walk in the truth.
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” (III John 2-4).
The path of following Jesus and obeying His Word is a difficult but rewarding one. Nothing brings me greater joy as a pastor than to see the people I serve take up this challenge, follow Jesus, obey Him, and grow in their faith. Thus the name: Rejoicing in Truth.
This online ministry began in July 2010, using the website to share information related to the messages I was preaching on Sundays. Since then, the ministry has grown to embrace new tools and technologies to provide Biblical teaching to wider audiences.
