A Letter from Pastor Brian
Hey Tribe Fam, Pastor Brian here.
I just wanted to take a minute to address the spread of the COVID_19 virus that has been affecting our lives locally and really to the uttermost bounds of the earth. Remember, God has not fallen off His throne. He IS still in control, and He has told us that we are to be people of power, love, and a sound mind.
Our leadership team, like you, has been closely watching all that has been going on locally concerning the corona virus. And, first, we just want to say thank you to all of our public servants working around the clock making tough decisions that serve to protect the families in this valley that we hold so dear. Thank you for your committed service.
Here at Tribe it’s important to us that we not only follow the God-given
command to honor and respect our governing authorities, but we also want to do our part to fight for the health and safety of our Tribe Fam. You may have heard that just a little while ago our Town Council approved an emergency ordinance temporarily banning all gatherings of more than 100 people in order to mitigate the spreading of COVID_19. So in an effort to both love and serve our community while also protecting our Tribe families, our leadership team has decided that we will be hosting an online-only service tomorrow LIVE at 10:00 a.m. on Facebook. To find us, just search for tribejh.com.
Let me be clear. This is NOT a decision made out of fear; rather it’s an intentional decision to love and serve our Tribe families and local community here in Jackson and the surrounding area.
So make plans now to tune in at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow—Sunday, March 15th. And I would challenge you to not just watch casually but join in on the conversation in the comment section on FB as we worship together.
I will also be putting out a call for leaders to step up as we look ahead to
meeting the needs of this community as this virus situation continues to unfold. The door to share the hope-filled Gospel and model God’s abundant love to your friends and family may be open wider now than ever before, and we want to be positioned to immediately follow God’s direction as opportunities to serve our community arise.
Gather with us tomorrow at 10:00 for more details on how you can BE THE CHURCH locally by serving and supporting our community during this rough time.
And remember, you got this!

WE WANNA HEAR FROM YOU
Brian is a former ski bum and disciple of Jesus, Lissa's husband, Selah and Kai's dad, and adventurer in the mountains. He is the founding and lead pastor of Tribe located in beautiful Jackson, Wyoming. Brian’s greatest passion is to build strong families and make disciples that can spread the love of God to the uttermost bounds of the earth. A graduate from Oral Roberts University and an ordained minister. Brian's motto - Strong to the Finish. Anyone can start the race, it's how you finish that counts!
Lissa has always had a gift for writing and performing music, and when she combines it with ministry, God uses her to soften even the hardest of hearts. When she’s not skiing, hiking, or camping with her family, she’s either strumming her Rainsong creating new melodies or she’s working with her hands to build furniture or remodel homes. Lissa loves people, and her heart for helping them is evident in everything she sets her hand (or voice) to.
