Our Staff
Our leadership team is committed to “Loving God! Loving You!” – that’s our call as leaders! We recognize the authority of God, and realize that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. Because we love God and love each other, our goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
