Pastor Dave

“I love seeing God work by His Spirit, through His Word, administered by His people. I love working with brothers and sisters in Christ. I love seeing families impacted for eternity. The joy of being in a place where God has been and continues to be at work is one of the great blessings and callings in life.”
