Personal Testimony God has given me great joy and fulfillment in this life. He has consistently brought me to the place He wanted me, in His time, and for His purpose. Through each of my experiences, and especially the adoption of our oldest son from Russia and the trauma of the shooting at Wedgwood Baptist Church in 1999, God has strengthened my faith and confidence in Him. His Word reminds me that I am nothing without Jesus Christ; the One who is my strength. I am humbled that He would allow me to be expendable for Him in order to bring Him glory....

It is my pleasure to minister to and serve with our senior adults. I believe that one may retire from work but born again believers cannot retire from serving the Lord. The word of God states that He renews the vigor of thy youth. We will work together till Jesus comes. We have His purpose to do until He takes us home to be with Him.” Contact Pastor...
