Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds
who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer
and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work
of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
