Beginning ministry here in Klamath Falls 14 years ago doesn’t even seem possible for Charlene and I! God has so blessed this incredible church family far beyond anything imaginable. We have seen a truly sovereign move of God over these last few years as His glorious presence has filled our midst.
We know that God’s greatest days for the Church are ahead of us, not behind us! That is why God has called us to move beyond the walls of the church more aggressively than ever before. There are days ahead that can not compare to the former. We can’t wait to see them through with this amazing church body!
'The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the LORD of hosts. Haggai 2:9
