The Call to Ministry

“Music has always been a huge part of my life and since middle school I knew playing music was what I should pursue. But while in college, the Lord impressed upon me a purpose to reach people, teach people, and grow leaders in their gifting to build the Church. I am a testimony to the Word of God, ‘For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.’ – Ephesians 2:10 (ESV).”

Favorite Book of the Bible

Daniel. In the beginning we witness God’s miraculous provision and see Him watching over his people even in their captivity. I want to have the boldness of Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. But the second half is equally encouraging, because the main point is this: Kings, rulers, armies and nations will come and go as God has appointed, but the Lord Jesus Christ will one day come back for His kingdom and He shall reign forever!
