On Sunday, I uncharacteristically wore a t-shirt — as did numerous other leaders in our church. The point wasn’t to go casual, but to point to something we are excited to unveil: a vision for Fern Creek Christian, and three values that we believe will help us live out that vision.

This Sunday, we will share with you what L2J means. And no, it does not mean “Listen to Jeff” — an idea that hadn’t occurred to me until someone mentioned it on Sunday. As much as I like that interpretation, L2J points to something more significant, and much more important.

If Fern Creek Christian is your church home, I urge you to make every effort to be with us Sunday as we share with you our leadership’s vision for our church. I am excited about what God is doing in our church, and look forward to what He has in store.

P.S. This past Sunday, I also announced that our leadership has asked Rich Teske to join our church staff as Discipleship Minister. Rich, his wife Connie, and their son Isaac will be with us March 2, when we will ask our congregation to affirm the leadership’s call to Rich to join us. I am excited about what Rich and his family will bring to our church as we continue to grow into all that God wants us to be. (For more on Rich, see my January 16 post, From June to January.)


Welcome to my blog. I'm Jeff Dye -- a follower of Jesus, a husband and dad, and lead minister at Fern Creek Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky. In other words, I am a learner --and hope to be each day I am given breath. I will use this site to share my thoughts on faith and life, some of it through the lens of what is happening with the church family at Fern Creek. If you're interested, feel free to read over my shoulder.
