What an honor it is to be asked to serve as your pastor. Thank you for your confidence in me. As we start this great new adventure together I am aware that respect is earned and I will do my very best to earn your trust and respect. I invite you to follow me as I follow Christ.

God has a great adventure in store for us as we prepare to advance His Kingdom in Central Texas. Take a deep breath and exhale slowly. This is the DAY God has planned for you! As your pastor, I hope to be your coach, encourager, leader, trainer and biggest fan! My door is always open to you.
My life scripture passage is Col. 3:1&2 "If you then be risen with Christ seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth."
That passage keeps me grounded in mission. Keeping my attentions on Christ and the mission He has given me helps me lose sight of the day to day issues that otherwise may discourage, frustrate or distract me from my purpose in Christ. Verse 2 is my daily prayer: Lord help me today to "set my affections on things above, not on things on the earth".
So church family....Let's get Ready, Get Set and Grow!
