Carolyn Joseph – Pastor to Families with Children
Personal life verse and why: Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
So many times in life, whether it is something big or something small, I often feel the need to fight the battle myself or try and figure everything out on my own. This promise that Moses told the Israelites as they were fleeing from the Egyptians has been something I have had to remember. God will fight for me, I just have to let Him!
Goal in Ministry: To be the hands and feet of Jesus; to show His love to the world. I want to be an example of what it means to be a family of believers living in the Kingdom of God.
What would the ideal church look like?: A community of believers who are not concerned with age, race, gender, or social status but are committed to furthering God’s Kingdom and helping each other to grow.
