Loving and Leading

 It's what pastors do.

We LOVE God and we LOVE people. We believe God is working in our lives and we offer ourselves to His service. We also believe that God is working in the world to bring people into a relationship with Him. It's a simple formula really - nothing more...nothing less.

We LEAD. We serve God by leading. We are not talking about authoritarianism, nor are we referring to coercion or manipulation. We lead from the motivation of love. We lead people to Christ and gently through the process of personal growth and maturity. We help people find and fulfill their "God Design."

It's what we do.
