Conversion/ Call/ Ministry Statement:
I accepted Christ as a young teenager, and felt the call to go into the ministry even then, but like Jonah I fled and rebelled during my high school years. After many years away from the church I returned and rededicated my life to Christ, and became active in the church and the call to the ministry became strong again and I felt I could no longer run from my duty to do God’s bidding.
I have a strong calling to missions and enjoy encouraging youth to step out of their comfort zone and volunteer for missions, planning organizing and going on short term missions.
I would feel most comfortable in the role of lead, associate or youth pastor position. I am also interested in evangelistic work and church planting.
