Our next free luncheon meeting will be Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at Generations Church, 5718 East Highway 377 in Granbury. Our speaker will be Sam Perry, Senior Director of Campuses at StoneWater Church here in Granbury and Founder of BackPorch Ministries.
Sam has been in ministry for more than 30 years since his days at Baylor University. For many years he was in Worship Ministry. For a few years he was on the road alone where he led worship at different conferences, youth camps, church revivals and retreats around the nation. He eventually formed his own band and was involved in some national collegiate events. He left the road in 1999 and has served at churches in Texas and Louisiana. During those years, God gave him a heart for pastors who were wounded. Life happens to everyone, and often-times, the Church isn’t sure what to do with pastors when they hurt.
In August of 2016, after pursuing God, Sam moved to Granbury to launch a ministry to pastors and ministers called BackPorch Ministries (BPM). God had other plans for a season and he was an interim Worship Pastor in Weatherford, but, as of the Fall of 2018, plans are now moving ahead for BPM. It is the goal of BPM to see hurting ministers regain their footing and walk in the calling the Father has for them – to help them navigate the wounds that come both from a job and obedience to a calling, as well as the wounds that simply come from life.
What Sam didn’t expect was the deep connection that formed with StoneWater Church. God called and opened the door for him to join their staff as the Senior Director of Campuses in July of 2018. So along with launching BPM with more focus and purpose, he is giving leadership to StoneWater’s campuses, serving them and helping all campuses be on the same page.
