Immediately following dinner, Micah Kersh will be sharing some of his favorite songs. Micah came to know Jesus at a very young age thanks to Godly parents who both lived and spoke the Gospel into his life.
Micah married his wife, Sunny, 21 years ago and the Lord has blessed them with four children ranging in age from four to 17. He graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University in 1999 and has served in full-time ministry since then. Micah has served churches in Oklahoma and Texas and currently serves as the worship pastor at First Baptist Church in Newcastle.
About four years ago Micah released his first and only album which is made up primarily of original songs intended to encourage the believer. He considers it a tremendous privilege to serve the church and use music as a beautiful tool to glorify God and edify His Church.
The inspirational speaker for the evening is Emily Freeman of Newcastle, Oklahoma. She is the oldest of four siblings and was raised in Seminole, Oklahoma.
Upon graduation from high school, she attended Oklahoma Baptist University where she met her husband, Jeremy. They were married in 1999 and have been in full-time ministry together for nearly twenty years.
Jeremy and Emily currently serve at First Baptist Church in Newcastle where they have been for nearly ten years. They are the parents of seven children, ages three to 18.
Emily’s life verse is Nahum 1:7 which says, “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble, and He knows those who trust in Him.”
Many in the area have been closely following the true life story of and praying for Emily and Jeremy’s son, Caleb, who was involved in a devastating vehicle crash with his younger brother, Clayton, in December 2017. They were on their way to attend an OU basketball game at the time. Both were rushed to the OU Medical Center from which Clayton was released not long after with minor injuries. Although Caleb escaped the accident without a broken bone, he suffered major brain trauma. Since that time, Caleb has worked diligently and with great determination to ‘start over’ in life and to recover from his injuries.
Shortly after the accident, Caleb’s father, Pastor Jeremy Freeman, expressed … ‘We believe the Lord protected his body but, for whatever reason, has allowed him to be in this place and we're seeing the Lord do great miracles through him.’
Caleb’s progress can be followed on Facebook at ‘Pray for Caleb’. In addition, a movie is in production about Caleb’s journey of healing and recovery and is to be released later this year.
