Our readers tell us about their pastors

RICHMOND — These responses were posted on the Richmond Register’s Facebook page when we asked our readers to tell us about their pastors for Pastor Appreciation Week.


Rev. Barry Neese is our pastor at St. Thomas Lutheran Church. He takes care of the flock, applies the Word of God to daily living, teaches our children to love God, and encourages us to serve the world.

My pastor is Edwin Lainhart, Abundant Life Ministries. He’s an awesome anointed man of God, a bible preaching pastor who preaches the truth no matter how hard it is sometimes. He is there for all of us when needed. He responds to our needs and cares about all of us the same way. He has a wonderful woman of God, Eulene Lainhart, right by his side that's just as anointed and special as he is. We have life leaders and a wonderful discipleship pastor also. If you don't have a home church, I ask that you at least come visit and see for yourself.

Susan Hill and Jonas Hill are our pastors at Crossroads Fellowship Church, and I appreciate their hard work, dedication, and energy they devote to serving God, our church and the community.                
    Jamison Rogers 
Bro. Jeff Jackson is pastor at Harvest Time. He is a wonderful servant of the Lord. He and his wonderful wife Geraldine Hill Jackson are there for others and to share God wonderful word with so many.                                            God has blessed them both with a wonderful church, and the people there are family to them. We all love them very much. They are very special people to us all. We are so blessed to have them in our life.

Pastor Bill Fort at First Baptist on the Eastern Bypass is my pastor. He is a true servant, an awesome example, an incredible friend. He loves the Lord and serves faithfully.

  • Bee on the lookout as beekeepers convene

    Summer vacation season is in full swing, and I had the pleasure of spending the last week and a half filling in at the Farm Store while the store manager, Bethany Pratt, got a welcome respite soaking up the beauty of Ireland.

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg Cicada-killer wasps are here

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

  • Brandon-Sears-c.jpg Converting from year-round calving to a controlled breeding season

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello everyone.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
