Why Ministry? I trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior when I was 19 years old. The person who led me to the Lord advised that I go to a Christian college for training in Christian music ministry after receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in education. The Lord used the experience at a Christian college to guide me into serving Him in Christian education and church music ministry.
Favorite Verse: Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
