The Call to Ministry

“The promises in God’s Word anchored my soul during a challenging season in my life. During that season, I knew I wanted to study and teach God’s Word so it would minister to others just as it profoundly ministered to me.”

Favorite Book of the Bible

The Gospel of John; I love how John blends narrative with theological truths while continually aiming at the main thing, Biblical belief in Jesus. ‘But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.’ John 20:31
