I believe the gospel and His word should be at the center of everything I do. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, by faith alone, I’ve been made new and redeemed with purpose. This truth reflects the gospel on that not only has the Lord saved me, but it is also the means by which I am to live my life. The gospel is all-encompassing. I strive to lead, teach, and shepherd in a way that gracefully adorns the Lord and His gospel. I want to spend my life making much of Jesus and seeking the welfare of others in the gospel through the preaching of His word, and the equipping of his saints. (John 3:30, Col. 1:15-18, Heb. 1:3)
