“God has certainly given me a pastor’s heart and love for the people I serve. I am passionate about teaching, preaching, and equipping followers of Christ in ways of obedient discipleship. It is my hope that His message will flow through me, and that it will be a message of hope, honesty, encouragement, and commitment. My desire and purpose is to present a high view of Scripture and a vision for the nations to the glory of God.”
