There are some things we believe about ourselves which feel true only because we have believed them for so long. This was the case for me. My belief was that my existence didn’t matter. As a teenager I came from a very broken home, and consequently this belief led to self-destructive living. I longed for connection to someone who would reach out to me in my pain. I found that connection in the most unusual place: the very home I had experienced so much pain in. Little did i know I was on a spiritual journey.
After walking into my bedroom as a 17 year old, and finding a bible on my bed, I began to read. What I found in the scriptures was a God who reached out to me in my pain, and brought me the connection of relationship I had been longing for. I found Peace with God. About a year after placing my trust in Jesus as the Lord of my life, and at the probing of a mentor, I knew I was called into vocational ministry as a Pastor.
Through the years, my calling has been refined and now I feel called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ while teaching and leading people to live in loving community with each other.
My ultimate desire is to seek the lost, present them with the Gospel and help them become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. I achieve these objectives through partnering with and helping ministry and professional leaders develop strategic pathways towards accomplishing God’s mission as they see it in their individual areas of influence.
