Their passion flows deeply for the children and the youth as they lead by example. The pastors are called to teach the body of Christ to hunger and thirst after righteousness; seeking the Face of the Lord individually and corporately in an intimate relationship.

Their heart’s desire is to see the body of Christ reflect the character of God by being living epistles of the gospel as evidenced by the lives we lead. Their heart’s desire is for the kingdom of God to be revealed in and through us - not to build a ‘mega church’ but to teach the body of Christ who we are in Him so that we can walk in our "Mantles of Destiny" here on this earth.
