Where are the bio's?

It is tempting to make judgements about each other without meeting or spending any time together. Instead of bios for our pastors, staff, and volunteers, we let them give a personally significant Bible verse or passage that encourages them.  


Remember that nobody on this planet is perfect. Hopefully, you can agree to include yourself in that category. Stick around long enough and you will see the flaws and the mistakes of even the most "righteous" person. When you visit any church, the key is to listen for and pray for God to lead you to the church you need, as well as the church that needs you (your passion for God and the unique abilities and gifts with which He was created you).
