Pastors and Staff 

Our leadership recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that they are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. They desire to devote themselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Their passion and goal is to equip the believers to do the work of the ministry, until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
