The Maddron Family
A bit about me and my family
From the time I was a little boy, I believe God was preparing me for what I do now as an occupation. I would come home from church, go to my room, and preach to an imaginative audience, using my Sunday School quarterly as the sermon outline. While others were pretending to be astronauts, doctors, and policemen, I was pretending to be the greatest preacher of God's Word alive. Fast forward 35 years or so, and here I am, serving the Lord and our community as the Minister of Children, Outreach and Small Groups at First Baptist Church Lee's Summit.
As I reflect on all the Lord has allowed me to do in ministry, my experiences have been wide-ranged. I've served on staff at 5 churches, helped plant 3 churches, led worship in 4 churches, served as Student Pastor in 3 churches, Children's Pastor in 2 churches, Care/Recovery Pastor in 2 churches, Small Groups Pastor and Outreach Pastor in 1 church. That's a lot of ministry and a lot of people that God has allowed me the opportunity to connect with over the years. I am a natural servant leader who believes strongly in leading by example and I'm also a huge believer in relational evangelism.
I've traveled down some hard roads with the Lord and my family as we experienced infertility for a number of years and then experienced the death of our first biological son Asher, when he was 3 1/2 months old. My wife and I have been foster parents and are proud to be adoptive parents to 3 of our children. The Lord has been gracious to us through it all and has allowed us to minister to thousands of people over the years.
My family, we are front yard folks. We have an awesome picnic table in our front yard that folks throughout our neighborhood and community gather around to eat, fellowship, pray and bond. We love connecting with others and meeting people of all ages right where they are at in life.
Thanks for taking a moment to get to know me and my family. I'd love to connect with you and offer any help possible.
