The History of WordUP

Updated: Aug 31, 2021

We are a Ministry of humble beginnings. We started off in a space at a local Fire Company offering free soup, sandwiches and “talk." We believe that WordUP, which stands for God’s Word, can lift people up, encourage and guide them.

"We didn’t want to just feed them soup and sandwiches, we wanted to feed them spiritually."

Fast Forward 2018, God opened a door at a local business, Dutchland Inc., when they offered the upstairs of their Corporate Center for our use. To make it possible to use the location as a church, we approached the Sadsbury Township Officials and they supported the zoning change.

During that time we continued to hold our monthly Soup, Sandwich and Talk (SS&T) events at the Gap Fire Hall, as well as prepare for our move to our new location and starting a church. Buck’s inspiration for WordUP came from Isaiah 43:19 - "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland." The Holy Spirit reminded Buck of this Scripture, that God wants to do a new thing. For him, and for WordUP, Buck believes this is the new thing.

Buck is our pastor, but he is taking a different title, lead follower. Christ is the Shepherd, he’s going to be the lead follower and other people that come will be the followers. Putting together a new church is a big task and there are a lot of people to thank but first and foremost to thank is our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, for all that He’s done.

Dear Pastor Buck.... My husband and I enjoy your sermons every week. We was introduced to your program through a friend that attends your church and we started listening to you last year and have continued to do so. We look forward every Sunday to listen to you. If it wasn't for the internet we would not be able to hear your sermons. We live in Lumberton, New Jersey. I hope to one day be able to visit your church and meet you in person, it would be such a pleasure to shake your hand and give you a hug (that's the way us hillbillies and pineys greet friends)!!! May God continue to richly bless you, your family, a…
