“He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a Rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth, Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and trust in the LORD.”   Psalm 40:2-3
       God is  awesome.  For Him to love us and give us His life should drive us to worship Him and to desire to know Him completely. Our purpose is to share the gospel, and by His grace lead people to a personal saving relationship in Jesus Christ.
My wife, Annette, and I have a heart for people. We love people. We go to great lengths to make the outcasts and struggling know they're loved, genuinely. I remember what it means and feels like to be lost, addicted, and forgotten. We desire for all men to come to repentance and to a genuine knowledge of the truth (2Peter 3:9, 1Timothy 2:4).
       I am driven by the Gospel of Jesus Christ for   “The love of Christ compels me,” and “woe to me if I preach not the Gospel ” (1Cor 9:16).  The church must be aggressive in winning our community, state, country, and world to Jesus.
