LEADING THE FAITH L.E.A.P. - "JUST FAITH IT"
Leading by EXAMPLE and without EXCEPTION; spiritually and morally, as we UNIFY despite denomination LABELS
Evangelizing endlessly in accordance with our Matthew 28 mandate, being practical and simplistic, "Lifting Up JESUS and allowing His Magnetic Drawing Power."
Assimilating through INTENTIONAL strategic planning & implementation until full manifestation
Proclaiming the WORD of GOD in proclamation, preachment, and practice
The two-fold mission of The Faith House is evangelism and discipleship. We are committed to the great commission instituted by Jesus Christ, per the Word of God as articulated in Matthew 28:18-10. We are faithfully focused on ministering mightily to the masses of the unsaved through nurturing, developing, and equipping those that are saved to become Kingdom deputies and expand our evangelistic effort. Each and every endeavor which we engage and enroll is to live out this vision that the Lord has given to us. From in-reach and out-reach programs, community initiatives, stewardship to membership, it has all been for the purpose of being obedient to the commission of Christ.

The focus of this entity was enrolling, embracing and enhancing young lives, while traveling the length and breadth of this country, displaying the “bright side” of the “east side” from the Midwest metropolitan region. His endless endeavor earned him the title of the “Young People’s Pastor” by one of the largest publications in the Midwest.
