On Earth As It Is In Heaven…

Dallas Willard was a notably significant spiritual leader for the church, who was also a mentor to many significant spiritual leaders… Many have commented on how he lived life with such integrity, such spiritual connection with God, that he was a profound blessing to be around. He once said that “I think that, when I…

First Impressions

Hello again everyone! I have now been on staff at the church for more than 3 months. To be perfectly honest, it has been a little challenging learning the accounting software and how the money flows through the various accounts given all the services and ministries the church provides.
