I started Deep South Reformation in 2015 with a few other pastors and seminary students on the campus of Southern Seminary. Since we were all from the South, we had a desire to write and blog online to provide locally appropriate resources and articles to help pastors and churches think through topics from afar. I have loved the conversations that have come from the website and the relationships that were made. When we first started Deep South Reformation, our audience was the church in the Southern United States. But over the years, we have had some helpful articles that we believe were beneficial to an audience outside of the Southern United States.
The primary reason for the name change is that since this website does not have a narrow audience, it did not need a narrow name. My desire with The King’s Table is that myself and others write in a helpful manner that will benefit all Christians across the globe. I desire to see pastors faithfully serve their congregations. I desire to see church members love one another. I desire for churches share the Gospel of Jesus and not waver.
If you are reading this and you are not a Christian, turn from your sin and run to Christ. Taste and see that He is good (Psalm 34:8)! Jesus is the Way, the Truth, the Life (John 14:6). He is the only hope for humanity. Jesus is the only way for man to be reconciled to God!
There has been a lot of change in my life since we first started Deep South Reformation in 2015. I finished my Masters of Divinity at Southern Seminary in 2018. My daughter was born in the winter of 2019. We moved back to the Boot (Louisiana) in the fall of 2019. I became an elder of North Hills Church in the fall of 2021. North Hills has some of the sweetest saints that you will ever meet. Our family is blessed to be at NHC.
Although the name of the website may have changed, my convictions and those who will write have not. I want people to come to know Jesus. I want them to come to The King’s Table. In a world full of uncertainty, the Christian can rest well in the true King who is sovereign over all things. I will be writing on doctrinal issues, reviewing books, commenting on them, recommending Bibles, resources, and ministries.
If you have written for Deep South in the past, thank you! I am thankful for each and everyone of you. I hope The King’s Table brings glory to God and benefits His people. Thank you to the Rigal crew and Katie Souther who made our logos!
We only get one life and it will soon pass. Only what is done for Christ will last!
