Yes, we are calling him Pastor Wilkerson.  And, I love how he does the invitation and how he asks each person who has accepted Christ as their saviour.  It was funny on Sunday, he even wore a blue shirt instead of white.  OMG.  I don't think anyone on the platform has ever worn anything other than white.  The kids at HB love it when he comes out to the schools.  He and Mrs. Wilkerson goes out to the lobby as soon as church is over and greets people.  It is so different.  As far as singing it's a hoot.  He starts the morning service with telling people what page to turn to and begins singing.  We sing all verses.  He's got Mrs. Colsten all flustered and Bro. Cuozzo, he's in a cloud sometimes.  Pastor can sing, too.

If he takes the add'l time to ask each convert the three questions, does the morning service get out past the normal 12:30?

This all sounds good.  Sounds like you and _ _ _  have something to look forward to, besides death and taxes, on Sunday.  I'm happy for you.

You know, I wish I was there to see all this.
He sounds like me...I do all kinds of unpredictable things in the service!

I view the live stream on occasion and I've liked the changes that the new pastor has implemented.  The only downside is that they turn off the live stream as the invitation song ends, so nothing beyond that can be viewed. (i.e. reading of the converts' names, baptism, etc)

I wish that the live stream would continue until the very end of the live services.  You FBC members....put that into the suggestion box!

I think the healing is beginning.  No, 12:30 and we're done.  He's off the platform too, greeting the folks in the lobby.  Just love it.  He's so personal and the people love it.  Haven't seen that in many years!!!  THANKS all for the support.  FBC has been through a lot of rough waters, and we're not through it all yet, but I think if Pastor Wilkerson can calm the people with his pastoral heart, we'll heal.

The healing will have begun when the service ends before noon.  :)

You are right that you aren't through it yet. I talked to a long time deacon the other day and they are very worried that a bunch of civil lawsuits are going to start coming at fbch from all of js's other "spiritual love interests". Apparently, there is a lot more to the story than just one fling.

Finally had time to listen to one of his messages all the way through on YT. Found a Sunday night that was only 29 minutes long. Between that and singing all the verses........ you know the place has gone stinkin' lib'ral. the message and delivery were refreshing. Wishing him well; still a little disturbed about the ingrained mentality of some of the people.
