If you had only one sermon to preach at CCMC what would it be?  It would be from Matthew 28: 18-20, the Great Commission, where Jesus said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Fulfilling Christ's ultimate command is a life-style each one of us should live and sets our agenda as a congregation.

When did you start working at CCMC? 2021

What is your favorite part about working at CCMC? I’m just getting started but love the people and the joy they have for serving God.
 
How many years have you been married? 18 years

How many kids do you have? 5 -  2 girls and 3 boys

What are your interests, hobbies, etc. outside of work?  Hunting, Fishing, Reading, and being with my family.

What's your favorite quote?  “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” – C.S Lewis

What would you be doing if you weren't called into ministry?  I’ve already done a number of things, Social Worker, Project Manager, Marketing Manager, so probably something boring like that.

If you had only one sermon to preach at CCMC what would it be?   It would be out of Genesis Chapters 1 and 2. God created each of us, on purpose, for a purpose. In God, and God alone, we can find our identity, security, and purpose. Apart from God we are lost and searching for those things in the world. God’s love for Adam was so strong that He hand crafted a garden for Adam to live in, that Adam may remain in God’s presence. God’s love for us is so strong that He sent His only son, Jesus, to die for us. So that in believing in Him we can be in relationship with God, no longer lost and without identity, security, or purpose.

Words that excite you? Hope, Love, Peace, Joy, Faith
