Navasota’s First Baptist Church has recently expanded its local youth outreach with the addition of a new student pastor.
He’s Joe Lane, and he tells Navasota News, it started as a recent visit with his in-laws here, who both knew about his passion for ministry, and just so happened to be members of First Baptist.
Lane says, he recalls surrendering his life to the ministry while he was taking part in a young life camp, where, by the grace of God, began preaching to youth.
But even with the Holy Spirit guiding his way, lane says, he’s still having to adjust to the southern way of thinking.
And while milling about town, the recent northern transplant admits he feels like he’s sticking out like a sore thumb, but says he can’t wait to see what God has in store for him here.
If you’d like to help him find out, he says you can find him at First Baptist most Sundays and Wednesdays, and sooner or later sharing a sermon somewhere around town. Or maybe even on a devotional or 5, on Navasota News.
