“Our society has drifted far from the Biblical absolutes that made her strong. My passion is restoring the means of God’s grace – like the reading and preaching of God’s Holy Word, the ministry of intercessory prayer, and the Biblical sacraments – to prominence in the hearts and minds of God’s people. Christ’s church simply must be central.” ~ Pastor Brad
