"An Open Door" - Guest Preacher, Rev. Chris Tiger

Acts 14:26-27
26 From Attalia they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been committed to the grace of God for the work they had now completed. 27 On arriving there, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles.

We are excited to have Rev. Christ Tiger preach at First Church OKC this Sunday! Rev. Chris Tiger has served as the Director of New Faith Communities of the Oklahoma Conference since 2016.  In this position Chris has had the privilege of supporting and encouraging those who are starting new churches and helping new people become disciples of Jesus Christ.  Previously he served as the Superintendent of the Lawton and Wichitas District.  He also served as a pastor of churches in Commerce, Altus, Enid and Owasso.  During his time at Owasso, he helped the church relocate to a new site and double their worship attendance. 

He and his wife, Priscilla, are the parents of two children:  Amy Givens and Aaron Tiger who are both in ministry.  They have blessed him with four grandchildren.  He enjoys spending time with his family and being Papa Tiger.  He is a teacher at heart, and particularly enjoys helping others understand and appreciate the Bible. His sermon for this Sunday is "An Open Door." Be sure to come and hear Chris Tiger this Sunday at 10:45 am at First Church OKC!
 
Remember if you are out of town and want to still join us for worship we livestream our worship services on our First Church Facebook page.  You can tune in live or join at a later time.
