But plans on full-time ministry and church planting if God chooses.

“My favorite Bible verse is Romans 5:8- ‘But God commendeth his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.’  That is how much God loves us.  He sent us His One and Only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins while we were still disobedient.  Who else but a Merciful God would do that and I am forever grateful this is who He is.”
