Matthew 13:44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”

“In his joy he sells all that he has” – this phrase isn’t taken lightly. This man found something worth giving everything for. He discovered a treasure that nothing he had could compare to. It was worth it to sell everything to have it.

What he discovered changed everything. His priorities, his values, his world changed. There was a cost, it cost him everything he had, but it was worth it. Quite simply, if I were to summarize this parable I would do it simply by saying this:

Jesus is worth it.

He’s worth more than anything this world can offer us, and He is our treasure. If we believe that, how is this reflected in our lives? What did this mean for me? In my life? In my ministry?

The desire for this website is centered around making much of Jesus Christ. To display to the world that He alone is our treasure above anything and everything else in this world. The deepest longing of the human heart is to know and enjoy the glory of God, to make His name known above all else. That is the heart of this ministry and a goal to be sought after, fought for, and pursued with our lives.

Meet the Team
Betty Pompell is often times an “all or nothing” kind of person. Full of passion, she typically absolutely loves something (this is usually the case) or absolutely loathes it. LOVES peanut butter. LOATHES brussle sprouts. LOVES being surprised. LOATHES being scared. LOVES driving long distances. LOATHES driving short distances. You get the picture. In that same manner, Betty LOVES growing in knowledge and affection for Jesus Christ and LOATHES apathy concerning his pleasure and presence.

“I grew up in a small farming community in the Mississippi River bottoms of western Kentucky. There were as many cattle as people, and it was a thirty-minute drive to the nearest McDonald’s. My younger brother and I spent much of our time exploring the multi-acre woods behind our house and the rest tossing a baseball in the back yard."

I have had the privilege of being in full time local church ministry since 1974. Eighteen years of this time has been in the role of Senior Pastor. During the 37 years of pastoral ministry, I have seen firsthand the changes in our culture and the effect those changes have had on the church as a whole.
