A first century model church
Meeting needs, building relationships & growing in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Serving God by serving others simply means we are a church that provides tangible needs to the communities we serve in order to reach hurting people for Christ, such as: counseling, health & wellness, ESL, private education, disaster recovery, family services, local & international missions, clothing and food, ministries for children, youth, and adults that are relevant for today.

How pure and innocent is a child’s love! As they grow, it’s my joy to help them learn about God’s love in creative and relevant ways. Since 2017, I have had the privilege of serving as the Headmaster of the Christian Academy of Louisiana. I have enjoyed providing support and encouragement for our school's leaders and teachers as well as for parents as they lay the foundation of spiritual growth at home.
Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
