To build missional ministry that is based on biblical scholarship, theological integrity, ministry competence and a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. My life objective is to serve Christ in building his church, realizing that primarily is being subservient to Christ as He builds His Church. This involves being a part of the plan of God as a participant in the progress of the gospel-winning others to Christ and discipling them to maturity in Christlikeness.
