UPDATE: 3/17/2020 


If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans! 

Yesterday we laid out the best plans we knew to continue to minister to the body of Christ at ADBC.  While I was writing emails and taping videos yesterday, President Trump was holding a press conference, telling people to limit group meetings to 10 people or less.  We also learned yesterday that Shaw AFB was moving to Health Alert Status.


Today we were told that we will not have access to Pocalla Springs Elementary School until the crisis has past.  This is a state mandate.

In short, the plan we prayerfully constructed yesterday was obsolete about as soon as we shared it with you.

SO the new plan is as follows:

  • We will stream our Sunday services this weekend.  I will preach live in all services, because the local and national situation may change at the last minute.  The plan right now is to record the music for Sunday, so that you can still worship with song and the word.  You can watch online at or on Facebook
  • Travis Pruden and his team are working hard to make sure we have LIFE group options for all.  These will be online options.
  • Our church office will remain open for now.  No one on our team is infected.
  • We will stay in touch about our plan for each Sunday in the weeks ahead.
  • Our Mayor, Joe McElveen, will be declaring a city-wide day of prayer, tentatively set for Thursday.  I encourage you to pray intensely that God will be merciful and intervene.
  • Please make sure to pass along needs as you discover them.  We will do all we can to meet them.
  • I want to encourage you to use this time to focus on core Spiritual Disciplines:

Remember Joshua 1:9 –
