OUR LEADERSHIP

Leadership Team:

OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM IS MADE UP OF GOD CALLED PEOPLE WHO, FIRST AND FOREMOST, RECOGNIZED THEIR NEED FOR GOD’S SAVING GRACE. AFTER DEVELOPING A PERSONAL WALK WITH THE LORD JESUS, THEY RECOGNIZED GOD’S SPECIAL WORK IN THEIR LIVES, THAT CALLED THEM INTO THE GOSPEL MINISTRY. ONCE THAT CALL WAS RECOGNIZED, IT WAS ANSWERED, AND NOW THEY ARE FAITHFUL SERVANTS OF GOD THROUGH THE LOCAL CHURCH. THEIR DESIRE IS FOR ALL PEOPLE TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, DEVELOP A PERSONAL WALK WITH HIM AND THEN ALLOW GOD TO USE THEIR GIFTS IN THE LOCAL CHURCH.
