A life-long learner.
I find great joy in disseminating the spiritual nuggets, which are found in the pages of God's word. For this purpose, I find myself consistently searching God's truths that are essential for daily living.
Evangelism: My chief goal and aim is the development of disciples...
I have one underlying desire; my sole purpose is to introduce others to the life-transforming power and salvific love of Jesus Christ.
The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. - Luke 4:18

Having been reared in a Christian family active in its local church and demonstrative in their faith, I came to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at age eight while attending Vacation Bible School at my church. Through active involvement in Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, and other teaching endeavors, I began to sense God’s call into ministry. It became clear to me during my years of undergraduate work that God’s will was for me to prepare to lead his people in the preaching and teaching of His holy Word. I am convinced God has granted me the gift and desire to serve in the preaching and teaching ministry. I am committed to leading God’s people into the full revelation of God’s promises and love, to nurture their spiritual development, to enable them to discover their spiritual gifts, and to equip them for effective leadership in ministry and evangelism.
