I want to thank everyone at The Summit Church for calling me to serve as your next Senior Pastor. It is both an honor and a privilege to fill this role in your lives and the life of our church. It is also a great responsibility, one that I don’t take lightly.

We have seen God do some tremendous things at The Summit during the time of transition. For example, we’ve had 3 baptism services since July and there are now 4 more individuals who want to be baptized. We have also seen the launch of Shouts of Grace for All Nations, the Swahili-speaking church that meets with us on Sunday mornings. Many of you have commented on the excitement and positive outlook. I believe this is just the beginning as we start a new chapter in the life of The Summit Church.

The Apostle Paul said God is “able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.” As your new Senior Pastor, I am looking forward to seeing this happen as we rely upon Him and see Jesus continue to transform lives, not only in Boise but also around the world.
