What would you say to someone who is thinking about giving your church a try? "If you are looking for a church with a strong family ministry where there is a lot of love, fellowship and where the word of God is taught with simplicity, then Strong Tower Christian Fellowship is the church for you," he said.
What do you believe is the biggest issue facing the faithful today? "I think the biggest issue is the demise of the family," he said. "As the family goes, so goes society. We have to work with couples on how to develop and build strong, healthy marriages. I think out of healthy marriages will come strong, healthy children, who will then have a positive impact for the Lord on our society."
