What has been one of the most defining ministry moments in your life?
One of the most defining ministry moments in our lives has been to embrace the calling of church planting, and it has no age limit. When God puts a calling on your life, there is no stopping it, no matter the pain, bumps, and bruises along the way. God places the call, He gives the vision, and He alone will make it possible. I knew God was right in front of me, directing my journey. In Romans, it says, “God’s gracious gifts and calling are irrevocable.” Yes, ministry is difficult and can be exhausting, but I am thankful for the lives I get to see transformed and the families restored as they learn of the love, grace, and acceptance that comes from Jesus Christ.
What is your church known for in your community?

Choose one word to describe the story of your life or your church. Why?
Journey. My life has been filled with many lessons, hardships, heartaches, joys, celebrations, and special moments that have ultimately led us to St. George, Utah, to live out the purpose on our lives. This journey has not always been smooth; in fact, it has come with many challenges, but it is all worth it to see others come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
Is there anything else you want to share with us about your journey in ministry or where your church is today?
We are so thankful for our ARC family. We could not do this without you. Before we even hit the 1-year mark, we saw over 425 in attendance, 38 decisions for Christ, and 15 baptisms. Praise God! The atmosphere is changing here in St. George, Utah!
