Pastor Vern has a desire to see people grow in God and follow after Jesus with their whole heart. He loves to worship God in music and see lives changed by the love of God and the power of His Word. After he gave his heart to the Lord in 1991 he began serving in ministry immediately. Within a few months of receiving Jesus he was in Bible school training for full time ministry. Over the years he has been in children's ministry, youth ministry, worship ministry, helps ministry, altar care ministry and anything else that needed to be done. He truly believes that "Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God" (Psalm 92:13).
