Testimony & Calling
I received Christ at the age of eight in a small church in Nancy, Kentucky.
I surrendered into the ministry at the age of 15.
My prayer for Central is that we would have strong families who know how to worship, share their faith, love others and walk in holiness for the Glory of God.
Psalm 63:3 “Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.”
