Im here AFF ... at least talk about me to my face!

Dear Brethren In Christ,

It recently came to my attention that someone had posted a thread in regards to myself and the church (The Epicenter) I pastor as being seeker sensitive and emerging. The post referred to me in a very negative light and actually encouraged those calling me several different names including "nutjob".

Now, it doesnt bother me that I am being slammed on Apostolic Friends Forum although nothing about what I have read sounds too "Friendly" ... however I hold nothing against the UPC. In fact, I love the organization and quite honestly have spent the last few years defending it to others in mainstream Christianity. I appreciate the many years I spent in the UPCI and still to this day believe that there is not an organization that produces more powerful preachers and/or worshippers.

I realize that I have been labeled "Charasmatic" being that I planted and grew a church outside of the UPCI ... but truth be told, even though our people may not look exactly like seasoned saints .. if you took the time to get to know these wonderful "Jesus name baptized Holy Ghost filled" new converts you might not be so quick to judge our church by their hairstyles and dress code.

Lastly, I am fine with you saying what you want about me. But please stop posting ridiculous nonsense about Bro. Jason Sciscoe just because he comes to preach for us. He is a tremendous man of God!!! If those posting comments about him were half the man of God he is ... well .. they wouldnt be posting stupid comments.

So .... here is a thread ... feel free to say anything and everything you like about me ... get it off your chest ... just say it to my face.

P.S. Here is a clip of one of our recent altar calls ... in which I preach Jesus name baptism and infilling of the Holy Ghost ... thought you might enjoy.

In Christ,

"Joshua", your reaction is not giving you any credibility. People talk about people. Ignore it or respond rationally. You choose.

Defending the UPCI? The ones that are eating you for lunch behind closed doors and on conference platforms? What are you defending them on exactly? Their doctrines? Their culture? What exactly?

Re: Im here AFF ... at least talk about me to my f

Dont have a lot of time to hang around on this thread ...

Max:
Joe Hunt is a wonderful man of God and I count it an honor that our churches share the same name.

You are right ... lol ... I am a nobody and am surprised that anybody would even consider me worthy enough to talk about. There is not a bigger nobody than me!

While I may not see eye to eye with the UPCI on every issue ... I grew up in it and was fortunate to minister in it's churches for years. While, in times past, I have been a somewhat vocal critic ... I am also one of it's biggest fans! While, I may be the blacksheep of the family ... I still consider the UPC my family! Thats why I "defend" the UPC.
