Professional Summary
The calling on my life is to invest into others for the fulfillment of their purpose in Christ.  I am motivated by the question, "If these church doors closed today, would our community know we were gone?"  This stirring question becomes a true gauge of the church's purpose to reach out to its community.

compassionate church.  It is my desire to serve a congregation and equip
the believers for the vision God has given them.
