Eric Sipe

"It has been my heart passion for the glory of God to diligently disciple others to a greater likeness of our Blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  The heart of this passion has worked itself out in every aspect of the ministry that God has given me.  Like Paul, it has been my privilege to commit the message of the gospel to faithful men and watch them grow into a more accurate picture of the character and essence of Christ.  Paul said it best in 2 Tim. 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.   The development of God’s people specifically for Missions and Church Planting or generally for local evangelization must play a vital role in the philosophy and heartbeat of the Church."  -Eric Sipe
