You’re stuck on a deserted island and boy you’re glad you packed your: My Iphone because I have the Best Fiends game app on it.

Do you have any fears, irrational or otherwise? I have a fear of losing so please let me win at everything.

Became a Christian how? When I was young every night my dad would pray with me before I went to sleep. One night while we were praying I started to ask questions to my dad about what a relationship with Jesus was all about. After we talked and he explained everything to me I made a decision right then to place my trust and confidence in Jesus. Then when I got older I had a great youth pastor who really came along side of me and helped me grow in my faith. The great impact that my youth pastor had on my life is a direct reflection of why I am a youth pastor.

Am particularly fond of/moved by/drawn to this verse: Joshua 1:9

Seriously though…I am so blessed to be a part of this great community and staff and I am excited to see what God has in store for Oak Hills.
