Hello friends! My name is Aaron Middleton, and I will soon begin a new adventure in my life as the pastor of Antioch West Baptist Church in Magnolia, AR. Whether you are a current member of Antioch West, or are simply curious about the church, I am glad you have found this site.
My intention for this site is to make communication easy between me and my new church family. For right now, it is barely more than a place holder for the church website I hope we one day will develop. In the meantime, I can use this blog to share with you all a few of the things that have been popping into my mind lately.
Speaking of things popping into my mind, I have found that my mind has been racing with ideas for the future in anticipation of my first Sunday as pastor. Thoughts of Children’s ministry, worship, adult discipleship, student ministry, fellowship, and much more have been occupying my thoughts with increased frequency and intensity. In other words, I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!
My first day as pastor at Antioch West will be Easter Sunday! I’m looking forward to seeing you then.
-Aaron Middleton, (Nearly) Pastor
