And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11 NIV
Seeking God's Will for a New Pastor/Teacher
We are currently going through the process of looking for a new pastor/teacher. We have a committee that is diligently seeking God's will in finding a new man to shepherd the flock. Please pray with us that our search will result in a new leader for our church soon.
In the meantime, the Lord has provided a series of godly and well qualified men to fill the pulpit until our search is complete. Some of them are listed below:

Jesus calls us to make disciples, so one of my responsibilities
was to create any an opportunity for Christians to learn and
study the Word of God.

13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
