Pastor Howard Wideman
In August of 2006 my wife, Robyn, and I made the commitment to become a part of the fellowship believing this was a place God wanted us to serve by using our unique spiritual gifts. By May of the following year after much prayer the church voted to have us join the staff on a part time basis to assist the senior pastor with teaching responsibilities. During that time ministry duties continued to expand and in September of 2008 became Senior pastor upon the retirement of the previous pastor. We are excited about the possibilities that are ahead. I am committed to teaching an expository message about the truths of God’s Word in order to move people into a closer relationship with Christ. We endeavor to provide opportunities through our weekly services and small group studies where people can grow in their faith as a Christian. My hope and prayer is that people learn how much God loves them and in turn have them love God more by taking what they learn and being servants to others in the community and so demonstrate Christ’s love to a hurting world. Come and grow with us.
