A Little about me
I am committed to pointing people to a life transforming encounter through the Spirit of Christ. I do this by Bible-based preaching and teaching, helping others identify their God-given strengths, equipping them with a passion to be all they are destined to be, and allowing them to unleash the talent they have been blessed with as a form of worship to the Creator that gave them the ability to touch the lives of others. Helping them to discover and engage in the transforming power of the Gospel. I believe everyone has a God-given talent and desire and can and should pursue it with passion. I am honored to be a husband, daddy, father in law, and grandfather . They all are my strongest motivation to constantly strive to make a difference in this world.
