- Ministry you are passionate about at Twickenham:
- Outback America, Inner city missions, serving at Madison Academy, and the integration of Twickenham with the community.
- Favorite Bible Verse/character and why:
- Favorite verse: Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” The promise that God has given us is hope and that hope allows us to see a bright future.
- Favorite character: David is probably my favorite character in the Bible because he never gave in to his mistakes and sin. He always returned to God.
