Philosophy of Ministry: "I must duplicate myself through others....entrust the work of the Lord to others...release others to be what God has created them to be!" And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to fiathful men, who will be able to teach others also. II Timothy 2:2
Ministry Motto: Life is an adventure...but God is faithful!
"Proclaimining God's Word in love to Biwabik, the East Range Community and Beyond"
