Passion for Ministry: Pastor Paul enjoys hearing people’s stories. He enjoys preaching and telling his own story. He is passionate about sharing the gospel through teaching and seeing people having an “ah-ha” moment with scripture. He is passionate about the prayer, “thy kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven.”
We welcome Pastor Paul on July 1, 2018.
      See you in Church, Pastor Mary
