My prayer and purpose in all I do:

  • To testify to the power and greatness of God, His plan, and His work. Ephesians 2:1-10
  • To share with any and all who will listen, the unfailing love of a God who is almighty, yet intimate. Romans 1:16-17
  • To encourage believers to go to greater depth in their walk with Him – that they would experience the fullness of the abundant life of peace and joy that He offers. Hebrews 10:18-24
  • To introduce people to a love they have longed for every day of their life by bringing them to Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:3-9
  • To expose and demystify the schemes of evil, in order that every believer may have a sense of the power and purpose he or she has in Christ. Ephesians 6:10-19
  • To promote healing and freedom for every believer through intense interaction with the Word; seeking to cooperate with the Holy Spirit’s ongoing transformation in every believer’s life. Hebrews 4:12-13, 1 Timothy 3:16, Philippians 1:3-8
  • To stir up a love for and belief that prayer is real, powerful, practical, ongoing, and transformative. Philippians 4:6-7, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, 1 John 5:14-15
  • To provide encouragement, joy, laughter, and blessing in every context. Philippians 1:9-11, Ephesians 3:14-21
