Hello Everyone! Today it's my turn to tell you a little about what my wife and I do in ministry.

We have almost completed our third year as the youth pastors of "Fuel" at Hillcrest Baptist Church in Richmond, IN. Fuel consists of the grades 7th-12th. When we first came to HBC the youth group average between 18-20 in attendance. Since then the Lord has blessed tremendously growing "Fuel" to 45-55 in attendance weekly. We have seen countless teens come to faith in Christ in the last couple years. God is GOOD! While I am the youth pastor, I have not and could not have done this alone. We have seven small group teachers that help out every Sunday morning. As well, we have some faithful men, Allen and Darrell, that drive a bus every Sunday Morning and Wednesday evening picking up teenagers. Thank God for their faithfulness! Our philosophy is simple. Teach the Word of God, lead teens to Christ and have a great time. So in a nutshell that is what we do. Gotta run! This is a busy, busy week! I have some thoughts concerning my philosophy in ministry I will expound on later this week so stay tuned!
