Pastor goes the extra mile

The weekend of February 13, 2011, marked the anniversary of Kenneth Wells’ service at Northview Baptist Church in Old Town Lewisville.  That weekend also marked the moment when I realized the difference between a “preacher” and a “pastor”.  On Friday evening, my husband Mike and I were struggling with his press release for announcing his Lewisville City Council candidacy.  Despite our efforts and input from friends, the release was not coming together.  Mike instinctively knew he needed the guidance of our preacher, Kenneth Wells.  I was hesitant to call a preacher on a Friday night, and especially this particular night, the Friday before the Wells’ anniversary celebration.  Pastor Wells not only took our call on his private family time, but gave us his full support as our pastor and our friend.  Pastor Wells and his beautiful wife Teresa are not just present in our life in church; they are present in our everyday life.  They are active in our community and committed to teaching us by example how to conduct ourselves as husband and wife, family members, friends, neighbors, and even employees.  To say that my preacher, pastor and friend Kenneth Wells has inspired me to try to be a better person is an understatement.  But as I have come to respect him, I have also become more and more in awe of his wife.  Teresa is a stunning woman, inside and out.  Her talents amaze me.  She carries herself with beauty and grace and God has certainly used her to make our community a better place.  I aspire to conduct myself as does Teresa Wells.  If you are looking for a church home, you will not regret coming to the open doors of Northview Baptist Church.  Everybody there will be happy you came.
