PASTOR JIMMY PROULX
I am the founder and lead pastor of FaithPoint Community Church based in Warner Robins, Georgia.
Discipleship is very important to me. Discipleship to a Christ-follower is a way of life. It affects every area of life. I am not into religion but a life changing relationship with Christ.
Discipleship is also a journey. Becoming a true disciple of Christ is a process. I hope that through this blog you are able to see my heart. I want to come alongside you on your journey to help you be the disciple that Jesus wants you to be.
Discipleship should start in the local church.
I became a Christian as a teenager. I did not have anyone come alongside me and mentor or lead me. I felt as if I was left alone to figure it out by myself. My journey was not easy and it is far from over. I met my wife at a wedding. We have grown closer to God and closer together through our marriage. We are the parents of two boys. They are a joy to us. I love being a husband, a dad, and a pastor.
In 2011, I knew God was calling me to something bigger than what I was currently doing. After much prayer, counsel, and research, FaithPoint Community Church began in that same year.
I write as a husband, dad, local church pastor, speaker and writer.
I want to help people grow in their relationship with Jesus, their spouses and their kids.
Men should be taught how to be a devoted disciple of Christ. Then men can be trained to lead their families and to be leaders in the local church. Women will follow their husbands to the degree that their husbands follow Jesus. Then, husband and wife join together to parent their children as a team. Churches that do not disciple its members may often find themselves with people in leadership and teaching positions that have never been discipled and do not know how to disciple others.
The Church needs men. Men that stand firm on Scripture as the ultimate source of authority, men that will fight for their families and churches, men that flee the traps and snares of culture and follow hard after Christ, men that are not afraid to share their faith, men that are not ashamed of the gospel.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. I hope that you are able to find some things enjoyable and some that help you as you grow in your passionate pursuit of Christ.
