My passion in ministry is seeing people become more like Jesus (holiness) and those disciples making a difference in their communities, cities, families, and worldwide. I have seen this happen through worship, study, and small discipleship groups. I am a Wesleyan nerd who believes that through our tradition of Methodism, people were revived by the work of God’s Holy Spirit. That can happen again if we as a Church submit to the voice of the Holy Spirit and follow God’s Will through Scripture, accountability, community, gifts of the Spirit, and the greatest of these is love. Welcome to Good Shepherd!
Favorite Bible Passage: 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 Common English Bible (CEB)™
“There are different spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; and there are different ministries and the same Lord; and there are different activities but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. A demonstration of the Spirit is given to each person for the common good. A word of wisdom is given by the Spirit to one person, a word of knowledge to another according to the same Spirit, faith to still another by the same Spirit, gifts of healing to another in the one Spirit, performance of miracles to another, prophecy to another, the ability to tell spirits apart to another, different kinds of tongues to another, and the interpretation of the tongues to another. All these things are produced by the one and same Spirit who gives what he wants to each person.”
