Through the Bible (Hebrews 11:7-29)
03 October 2012
As we continued to study through Hebrews 11 and the Hall of Faith, Pastor Brett talked about the importance of family in the life of faith. We saw that Noah was commended for preparing a safe place for his family and also saw through the examples of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph how God’s blessings flowed through the families of broken people that trusted God. Finally we saw that Isaac and Jacob were commended by the Lord for blessing their children and that Joseph had faith that God would deliver his people from Egypt.
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
