Whetting Your Appetite

Alright, I’m back to blogging. Why haven’t I been blogging for the past 5 months you may ask? Because I’ve been up to a whole lot of following Jesus, husbandry, child rearing, church planting, traveling, getting pregnant again (well, not me but my wife…you know what I mean), preaching, evangelizing, equipping young men, training future […]

a little update…

I know that many of you, especially our supporters, try to keep updated with our lives via my blog. Updates are one thing that I have not been very good at lately but here are some random thoughts on how things are going here in Tampa… 1. Our church plant has seen unusual summer growth […]

One way to add #’s to the church plant

Now I know that one of the newest upcoming trends in church planting is to avoid talking about the dreaded “numbers.” How many did you have on Sunday? How many are coming out each week? How many are you running? These are the non-postmodern sensitive questions that you get as a church planter all the […]

The latest ramblings…

Every once in a while I like to give an update on what’s going on both in the ministry and with the family. Well, here it is, in no particular order… Yesterday marked one year since our arrival in Tampa (wow! that was a crazy year) We have seen a church built up from an […]

This next year…

So when Ashlee and I decided to follow God’s desire for us, namely to come to Tampa to plant the next Aletheia church, we left everything that was comfortable and stable to us. I had a stable job with steady income. We did not have to worry about our financial situation from month to month. […]

Asher’s arrival

I’m sitting here at the hospital in Ashlee’s bed, with Asher, while his mom is taking a shower. We are waiting to get discharged (poor choice of words in my book but that is the correct hospital lingo)…I prefer released. It’s been a roller coaster ride of a weekend that began at 8am on Saturday […]

My thoughts on Asher

As I think back to the births of my first two sons, I can honestly say that I took a lot of things for granted. I really didn’t pay much attention to the boys when they were hanging out in mom’s belly. I just figured what I couldn’t see really wasn’t a part of my […]

A recent update I sent out to our supporters

As most of you know, when Ashlee and I stepped out in faith to lead the charge with the new Aletheia church plant in Tampa nearly a year ago now, we decided to leave a very comfortable life which included a set salary, set health insurance, and a comfortable job. And so many of you […]

Drew getting his groove on again

When you’ve got a kid that gets as happy as mine does when he hears music that it makes him start to dance like a mad man, you just have to get that on video. So, here is my 2 and a half year old son Andrew David Proffitt doing his thing.

What do you want to accomplish in 2010?

New year’s excite me to no end. I have so many thoughts of grandeur for 2010 that I can hardly stand it. Some of my desires and goals for this next year are… 1. Have a healthy baby boy born at the end of February 2. See 100 people accept Jesus into their heart through […]
