“. . . faithfully preaches through the Scriptures, verse by verse, not skipping over hard texts, but working through them.” — Jaclyn

“. . . has continually demonstrated a shepherd’s heart, full of grace and a zeal for the gospel. He feeds the sheep well and has been a great mentor to me. — Matt

“. . . has a heart for discipleship and leadership training. Every Tuesday, he meets with me and other men in our congregation to pray with us, encourage us, and work through a Bible study with us, in order to train us to do so with others.” — Dave

“. . . has taught me how to share the truth with love and grace, and opened my eyes to see that the body of Christ is more than who’s in our building.” — Pamela

“. . . walked our family through the most difficult season of our lives. He is a man who loves God’s Word and always seeks to handle it soundly.” —Rachel
