The journey for me started in Jacksonville, Florida. I joined the Army in 85 and got out in 95. I married Jeana in 1988 and have been married 22 years. I left the Army after sensing a higher calling from the Lord to push His kingdom. I graduated from Southwestern Seminary in 1997 (Theology) and 2002 (MDIV). I studied preaching with the legendary Dr. Haddon Robinson at Gordon-Conwell (DMIN). My thesis-project is is on “Connecting the Sermon to the Small Group.” I’m privileged to serve as Senior Pastor  of the people of God at First Baptist Church, Ruidoso, New Mexico.

    My name is Ken Bailey. I am Kelli Moore’s father, grandfather to Wesley and Bailey Moore baptized by you this past Sunday. I am an ordained Baptist Minister and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I just want you to know that I appreciate the message you brought on the Sunday we were there. You were quite courageous to choose the passage you chose, preaching on our mandate to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. I was impressed not only by your confessional style of preaching, but also by the straight forward way you chose to challenge us to love everyone. Just want to say keep up the good work. Blessings

    Pastor Stoddard, Your message this morning ministered to my heart. Thank you for being faithful to the preaching of Gods word. You mentioned Dawson Trotman this morning and I would like to send you a web site where you can hear his personal testamony. One of my favorites that you should not miss is his sermon “BORN TO REPRODUCE” as well as his testamony(2 part). These can be heard and accessed at:dicipleship.com/index.php

    Thank you for being God’s faithful servant, fatihful to His calling, and faithful to the word.
