What do you love most about your work?
I love seeing what happens when people discover The Lord and begin to understand the significance who they are in His sight. The sense of freedom, belonging and purpose in new believers is both tangible and wonderful! I love to be able to spend time in the word of God (The Bible) until God speaks. I love feeling the power of the word in my own life and taking time to create biblical messages that can throw light upon contemporary life and culture. Also, as leaders we have a great vantage point to see many of the countless unglamorous ways that people in the church family demonstrate genuine love for each other.
