We at Beacon Hill believe that God has called us to be living examples of Christ. As a result we are dedicated to finding and following the plan God designed and chose for us, both as a Body and as individuals.
As Pastor, it is my job to teach and train (to equip). It is my privilege to encourage, instruct, and provide direction in the Word of God and in the ways of God, so that others can do the work that God designed for them to do. This will result in greater growth and deeper spiritual walks.
11 Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.12 Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.13 This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God's Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.14 Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won't be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.15 Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.16 He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Eph 4:11-16 (NLT)
Greg graduated from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in 2008. He also holds a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University.
Because his parents, Richard and Kaye Rolfe were missionaries, he had the opportunity to grow up in Costa Rica, Colombia and Venezuela. These experiences increased his love for missions and helped him understand that people are people no matter where they live. His parents are currently retired and his brother, Brian is on staff at South Western Baptist Theological Seminary.
Greg's work experience includes twelve years as a blacksmith and eight years as an associate pastor in addition to other odd jobs. He has been the Senior Pastor at Beacon Hill Baptist Church since Sept 14 of 2008.
The Lord has blessed him with a beautiful wife, Marna, and four wonderful children: Rebekah, Debrah, Joshua and Zachariah.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. On the sixth day He created man. The rest of the Bible deals with God's relationship with man, and man's ongoing struggles. Revelation, the last book of the Bible and God's last recorded words to us, chronicles the conclusion of the struggle that first began in Genesis. Revelation begins with seven letters written to seven churches. Seven final messages that encourage and direct. Seven last statements of inspiration. This book is a walk through those statements. It is my hope that you will recognize and understand that the problems first encountered by the seven churches very much affect us today. It is my desire that you will put on the armor of God and use the solutions outlined by Him, through John, to overcome.
When travailing the byways of life do not consider the splashing of cars that soak your cloths as a reminder to hate life but instead see these moments as the motorists kind reminder that you need a proper cup of tea.
Tea is not coffee made in a rush and drunk quickly and without thought. Coffee whose only concern is to slam your adrenal glands into high gear and jump start your body back into motion. Tea is steeped, it takes time to make correctly. It is caffeinated but it's agenda is not to slam you into high gear but to warm your heart and lift your spirits. Tea is sipped and enjoyed giving one time to think and ponder the day ahead or reflect on the plans you have made. While some might make a case for the place of coffee in our daily lives it is hard to take them seriously when you reflect on the restorative effects of a proper cup of tea.
Life comes at you fast each day it is filled with events and needs and so each day we make plans and execute them to the the best of our abilities. As we travel through our day attempting to keep on schedule and maintain our calm, life happens, we are splashed by other motorists. It is at these moments we must not over react and execute poorly created plans but instead take a moment enjoy a cup of tea and proceed in an accurate manner that continues to accomplish the true agenda we had in mind when we began down the road we were traveling. Rushing rushing rushing rarely accomplishes the most accurate interpretation of the goals we have but it does encourages us to think it will.
Next time life splashes you and causes your mood to shift take the time to brew a proper cup of tea and see if it does not indeed improve you mood and lift your spirits. This amazing event can save a day and in fact might cause you thank that motorist for giving you the impetus to take the time to reflect on how your day is progressing. Not every interruption to our day or to our carefully laid plans needs to be seen as frustrating but might instead be just he blessing we need.
Have an amazing day!
