We are passionate about the teachings gifts and ministry that God has entrusted us with, to see the lives of people changed through the teaching and life-transforming message of the Gospel of Christ our Lord. We have been commissioned by the Holy Spirit to equip God’s people with the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of sacred scripture, and then to join us, in His great commission, to make DISCIPLES. We enjoy teaching God’s Word, ONE VERSE AT A TIME!
