A Message from Pastor Matt

Making disciples of Jesus—As the well-known commercials say, “It’s what we do.”

I’m convinced that if we do this long enough, Jesus can use us to saturate our community with His good news!

Imagine the day when there’s a Bible-studying, earnestly-praying group of believers in every neighborhood of our region! Envision the day when Bible Center is primarily known for loving God, loving each other, and loving our neighbors! Dream of the disciples Jesus is preparing for you to make—individually—just as you are, with all your strengths and weaknesses!

More than I want this for our church, I want this for you before you meet Jesus. As one of your pastors, my job is to help you have a good day on that Great Day.

Will you pray about what the Lord will have you give between now and December 31st? Will you consider helping us crush these giving goals and launch 2022 with strength?

With you for the gospel and for the community,

Matt Friend
Lead Pastor


Each year, 24% of our budgeted giving comes in the month of December. Even if we tried to budget otherwise, that has historically been our reality due to the benefits of year-end giving and the inspiration that each Christmas season brings. It’s a hallmark of West Virginia culture.

2021 contributions must be received or postmarked by December 31. If you have questions about other tax-free giving opportunities, contact Lee Walker (304-346-0431).
