passions: The faithful preaching of the Word of God and the pastoring of Christ’s church, the sharing and spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and time spent with family.

On the future of First EPC: I have accepted the position of Interim Pastor at First EPC, because of its long heritage of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all of its truth and worshipping the One True God in joy and faithfulness. Clearly, God has blessed and used this church mightily for 150 years, and we believe that He will bless and use this church increasingly in the years ahead.
