His gifted teaching ministry, enthusiasm for the Word of God, and organizational skills are instrumental in equipping Faith Baptist and all of its ministries.

Workshop sessions feature tools, ideas and lessons applicable to all church ministries. The sessions are designed to be highly interactive to meet unique needs and situations faced by those in attendance. Topics include leading groups, public speaking, financial management, and discipleship.
