Look What's Coming in "Digging Deeper"


We are now into our summer Sunday schedule that concludes each week after morning services.  However, starting September 15, after our 10:30 a.m. morning worship, we will once again meet weekly for lunch in our Fellowship Hall in the Family Life Center @ 11:45ish.  Then at 12:15ish, our Senior Pastor, Dr. Ron Wilcoxson, will teach a study we call "DIGGING DEEPER."   Starting September 15, we will dig deeper into "Essentials 301: Discovering Your Ministry."  Dr. Ron will lead us to discover our spiritual S.H.A.P.E. and what it reveals about who we are and what God has called us to do.  This study is based on Dr. Rick Warren's "The Purpose Driven Church" model.  Join us this Fall as we will be "Digging Deeper" into the scriptures on Sundays after lunch.

GOD & TV Theme Songs is the new teaching series that spins off the words of iconic TV shows to explore what the Bible says.  You will really enjoy delving into God's Word through this unique series.

Meet our Senior Pastor


Dr. Ron Wilcoxson is our Senior Pastor.  He brings a new vision to our church in Blytheville, leading us to provide Spirit-filled worship, family oriented Bible study in Blytheville and beyond, and creating ministries for each member of the family.  He has served as the lead Pastor in churches as large as 2100 members and 1600 in average attendance.  His churches have typically been fast growing with lots of people making professions of faith in Christ.  He has been a pioneer in leading multiple services per Sunday, with multiple styles, although for the last 15 years, his churches have been primarily contemporary worship churches.  Dr. Ron has been married to Angela for 44 years.  They have four grown kids, with 2 that serve vocationally as worship leaders. Dr. Ron is committed to a healthy and strong children's & youth ministry, which includes outstanding daycare.  He also loves worshiping, teaching and leading others to Jesus.  And, he's pretty good at golf, too.
