"I love to proclaim the simple and powerful story that Jesus loves us. I am committed to helping followers of Jesus become partners in proclaiming salvation through the work of Jesus Christ. It is my heart's desire to use the joy, enthusiasm and passion of experiencing daily the reality of God's grace and mercy to equip the people of God to reach out to a hungry, disillusioned world."
