“A passion for God and His people should be claimed by all Christians, but a passion for the Church is an additional drive placed in the hearts of certain God-called leaders/servants. This is a passion for the church to function with a focus of God, love, community and outreach. This is a place where people join in unity to experience corporate worship, prayer, discipleship, camaraderie, healing and more. This is the place where people learn and are encouraged to take this same experience into the world in which they live, impacting eternity for the Kingdom. This is the place where my passion lies. All churches may look and feel greatly different, but prayerfully, within each church there is a people longing for a deeper relationship with God and a communal worship experience that will ultimately birth a drive for global spiritual change. Not everything spiritual happens in the church, nor should it; but many begin there in some way.”
