I am humbled by what God is doing among our ever growing Pathway Church family. There is an energy and excitement that can only be attributed to the movement of the Holy Spirit. I hear stories weekly of people taking significant steps toward living closer and closer to Christ. Every weekend, guests stream through our doors seeking healing and a place to belong. Every month, multiple sons and daughters of God come forward to be baptized, children are being presented for dedication/baptism, while whole households join. Thanks be to God!
God is the reason, and God is using you to make it happen. Thank you!
Staff stability and long tenures has also had a huge impact upon our sustained health and experience of God’s favor. God has gifted us with a high leadership capacity staff and for that I am extremely grateful. They tirelessly work to help us fulfill our purpose. Please express your appreciation to them often, as they sacrifice much behind the scenes so you can Worship Together, Serve Together and Grow Together in such a loving mission-driven church family.
One of the joys of a long pastorate is watching God raise people up from within the body to assume positions of lay and staff leadership. Please welcome the following to our Pathway Staff Team and celebrate the growth of some of our long-time team members.
