I believe my purpose as a pastor as revealed in Scripture (1 Cor. 10:31; Matt. 22:37-40; Matt. 28:19-20; Eph. 4:7-16) is to glorify God by modeling the reality of His attitudes, actions, and character in my life. Furthermore, I accomplish this by demonstrating biblical, practical, and creative communication in my preaching/teaching ministry and by creating biblical and relational environments where unsaved, imperfect, irreligious, and inquiring people can discover Jesus, grow in relationship to Him, and progressively become completely committed Christ-followers.
