Grace and Peace to you through our Lord Jesus Christ!
I greet you with Jesus Joy. I would first like to express how happy I am to be your pastor. I believe that God does all things perfect, and HE is a God who makes no mistakes. While we are in transition I am asking that we embark on this journey by incorporating these things in our daily walk.

And that the vision for the church be fulfilled
My family and I have come as a unit. We love hard and work hard to build up the kingdom of God. I am looking forward to what God has in store for this Zion at this time.
It was wonderful to see many faces on Sunday and I am looking forward to meeting the rest of the family in the upcoming weeks.
