Rachel: I am a pilgrim on a journey, with a desire to serve the Lord, and to share His love and joy with others. God has been constantly reshaping me, as the Potter shapes the clay, smoothing rough edges and building up. As His design, I am more trusting, less fearful of what lies ahead.
At MVC, I have seen the hospitality gift bless many, welcoming newcomers and longtime church goers each week. The Body that gathers has a heart for the Lord and each other.
Jim and I enjoy visiting others, bringing a smile, Christ's love and the gospel to the lonely.
Jim: I'm a sinner made useful by the trinitarian God through his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Like other believers, I understand that I am being sanctified by the Holy Spirit in this life and this sanctification is completed in the next life. I enjoy worshipping at MVC with Rachel my wife. We have been married for 28 glorious years.
God has made me a new creature in Christ. “But as many, as received him, he gave the power to become the sons of God,” John 1:12. “If you abide in my word, you are my disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free,” John 8:32
At MVC, I enjoy the atmosphere and the freedom in Christ among the people. “Where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty,” (2 Corinthians 3:17).
I enjoy tennis and basketball as well as reading histories, and biographies, and studying the Bible.
