My pastoral priority and personal passion is preaching and teaching God's Word to God's people. I am convinced that the faithful exposition and application of God's Word to God's people is the only ministry paradigm that will bear fruit that remains. However history may evaluate my shepherding, may it be said that I fed the flock the pure milk and the rich meat of God's Word!
