Justin is passionate about leading the church to the throne of God through corporate worship. His desire is to create a culture where the congregation can relate to and engage richly with our Savior. “One genuine desire, being rich towards God. Taking what gifts and talents the Lord has given us, using those crafts to glorify and worship His name.” “When we sing, we pray twice.”
