What Inspires You?
Potential and seeing God work! That is what inspires me about GRACE. It is an awesome body of believers with amazing gifting and passion for God. It is my prayer that we might bring together all the strengths and abilities and use them to see God do a great work for His glory!
If you had no limits, where would you vacation?
Anywhere with my family. That is not a cop-out :-) I have traveled to Israel, Egypt, India, Europe, etc and while all those places were wonderful they were without my family. I felt incomplete and it took away from those experiences. So I am happy at home or in Hawaii so long as I am with my family.
What's God been teaching you lately?
That He is enough. Paul's words in Philippians 3:10 roll around in my mind a lot these days, "that I may know him...". Paul had come to "know" Christ 30 years prior but the passion of his heart after all those years of ministry was to simply "know" Him more. To "know" Him more intimately, personally and passionately. Paul knew as I am learning that all the achievements, accolades, and attainments of life come and go but only Jesus remains and satisfies.
What is your role at GRACE?
My title is senior pastor but what that means to me is: I have the privilege of leading an awesome ministry team of gifted and passionate Jesus followers. I get to be the primary teacher in our Sunday morning worship experiences. I have the awesome opportunity to walk alongside the body of believers and love on them as they journey with Jesus. I get to help lead and shape the ministry into the desired future God has called us to:"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." Matthew 28:19-20. My title is senior pastor, all I know is I love doing what God has made and called me to do!
