In 1989, in a prison cell in Perryville Prison, a cellmate gave me a cassette tape with a sermon from Dr. John MacArthur.
Over the next two years, I listen to thousands of sermons and messages (many of them numerous times) and read every book he had ever written. I grew strong in my understanding of God’s Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pastor MacArthur became a ‘father-in-the-faith’ to me and a teacher during that time of my life.
I had no idea (in God’s providence) I would one day begin attending the Sheperd’s Conferences at Grace Community Church. Nor did I know, while listening to Pastor John MacArthur in prison that he would one day come to our home in Gilbert, Arizona and that I would get the opportunity to share with him in detail the impact he had (still having) on my life, family and ministry.
In this audio recording, John MacArthur describes his first meeting with Chuck Holmes, his reaction to his testimony, and his recommendation of the Mt. Nebo Prison Ministry.
God developed a ‘partnership’ with Grace Community Church, Grace To You, and Mount Nebo Prison Ministry. John is a friend, hero, and still a teacher I listen to and highly value. A few years ago, I was invited to speak at Grace Community Staff Chapel and now have many friends on that amazing campus. When I visit Grace Church it always feels like home.
