Andrew’s Call into the Ministry

“God called me into the ministry at the age of seventeen. I had the opportunity to lead worship at both church and school throughout high school. As I attended Williams Baptist University, I worked toward a church music degree. During my freshman year, God opened the door for me to start my ministry at FBC Lepanto. Since that day, I’ve been striving to grow as a pastor and to follow hard after the Lord’s will for my life. I believe for me to be an effective Worship Pastor, it has to start with being an authentic worshipper myself. My goal is to encounter God and lead others to encounter Him.”

My son, don’t forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commands; for they will bring you many days, a full life, and well-being. Never let loyalty and faithfulness leave you. Tie them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will find favor and high regard with God and people. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:1-6

Alisa’s Vision for Children’s Ministry

I am passionate about leading children and their parents into a closer relationship with Christ. I believe that it is my duty to help raise up children to be active members in the life of the church. Children do not have to be older in order to be involved and make an impact. It is also the children’s minister’s job to train, equip, and partner with parents in order to maximize our gospel efforts.
