Ministry Statement

I have a passion to see God’s people love God and love one another. I seek to promote a Kingdom mentality emphasizing an eternal perspective seeking to reach the lost and discipling the believer. I desire to see people grow through biblical training, spiritual development, and practical growth. I enjoy training leaders and equipping saints to serve. It is a joy to see families worship together, parents grow in the Lord and children develop a Christian foundation. I have a burden for the lost and desire to use my education, training, and life skills to reach people with the Gospel message. Evangelism and Missions are an important priority in my ministry. I have enjoyed creating new ministries and developing new opportunities for people to serve. These tracks have provided new avenues to reach non-believers. I am a team player. I believe in team ministry, exchange ideas, plan, pray, and work together. I am a people person and enjoy sharing life together both in times of joy and moments of sorrow.   Above all, I desire to know God more and make Him known to others.
