FAVORITE OR LIFE VERSE

Jeremiah 29:11-12 – 11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

WHAT GETS YOU EXCITED ABOUT MINISTRY OR WHAT IS YOUR PASSION IN MINISTRY?

I get very excited when you see children’s eyes light up as they begin to see how much God loves and cares for them.  When they have understanding of all Jesus has done for them and ask Him to be their Savior; well, I can’t even describe how wonderful it is to witness the power of the Lord working in that way!  I’m passionate that all kids know they have a heavenly Father that loves them and that they are given the tools to grow in their faith and have a firm spiritual foundation.
