In this week’s chapel, Pastor Joe Lane brought a message from Philippians 2:5-11, exploring “Jesus as our Purposeful Example.” He describes how Jesus’ purpose affected other areas of His life and how His example relates to us.

Jesus’ purpose was more important than His pleasure, power, prominence, or pain. Ours is too. Our God-given purpose cannot be fulfilled if we are not becoming like Christ.


Pastor Joe Lane is currently serving as the senior pastor at New Life Christian Center of Muskegon. He earned his Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership at Cornerstone University. He is married to Sharri and they have two sons and a daughter. They have been married for 17 years.
