Thank you for visiting our website! I serve as a Pastor/Teacher and Elder at Grace Bible Church. I am a 2002 graduate from The Master’s Seminary in Los Angeles, California. My heart’s passion is to love and shepherd God’s people under my care. I primarily seek to do this by exalting Christ through the expository preaching of God’s Word, trusting God to bring about the salvation of sinners and the sanctification of God’s people.
At Grace Bible Church in Seminole, we exist to glorify God by exalting the Lord Jesus Christ, by evangelizing the lost, and by edifying the saints. We trust you will find that we have a sure confidence in God’s Word, believing it is God’s inspired and inerrant Word to us. Because of this settled conviction, Scripture is our ultimate authority, establishing the foundation of our faith (what we believe) and our practice (how we live). Grace Bible Church is a body of believers who are committed to studying God’s Word seriously, growing in grace together, reaching our family and community for Christ, and enjoying true Christian fellowship in the body of Christ.
