It Pays to Praise

30 June 2019



Psalm 150


We are told over and over again in Psalm 150 to “Praise the Lord”—but why is God so insistent about this command? As it turns out, He knows that offering our praise to Him will benefit us as we delight in His presence, respond to His greatness and prepare for our eternal destiny.

Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
