Order of events surrounding the exhortation of The Church At Grace Park, White House, TN.

February 2016 – Abolitionist Mike Gulley delivers packet to church staff to be delivered to an elder or pastor. This packet contains a letter as well as a sampling of abolitionists material. Click here to read the letter.

February 2016 – Pastor Patrick Nix responded to the packet. We both had very conflicting schedules and were unable to establish a good meeting time. I continued to let Patrick know I did desire to meet with him when our schedules allowed. I also informed him that he was the ONLY church leadership who had responded to the letter (I had dropped off the packet to a dozen churches in White House, TN)

May 9th 2016 – We are finally able to arrange a sit down meeting with Patrick. Abolitionists Mike Gulley, Heather Gulley, Jake Cooper, Nikki Vestal and Rob Vestal were present. Meeting was about 2 hours in length and by all appearances was favorable. Many of us were very excited about the potential unity with Grace Park and and the hope of co-laborers. He was talking about recording a video of us and sharing it in the church. He was in agreement with our theology, but not so much our methods. He seemed to understand that there was a need for various methods in this battle.

May 11th 2016 – See Email from Patrick explaining that we could not work together in unity.


I continued communicating with Patrick regularly attempting to reconcile and seek clarity on his disagreements.
