Leadership Style

In preaching, he is scripture-based and uses stories to connect the truth of God to life. He counsels all Christians to seek to live, love, work and witness with Christ as the source of all they do. In his role as administrator of a church, he leads by consensus and trusts the leadership.


Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the Lord with your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will direct your path.“
