Adult Ministries

The mission of Adult Ministries is to prepare, challenge, and inspire women and men to a life of Christian discipleship. It is our desire and mission that every adult become a full and fulfilled disciple of Jesus Christ, and that each person will have a passion for Christian service, whether it is across the street or around the globe.

Rev. Larry MorrisI invite you to investigate the many resources on the Adult Ministries web sites. You will find that those resources will help bring spiritual depth to your life and greater effectiveness to your ministry with adults. If you have a question or a suggestion for the Adult Ministries team about resources or ministry options, please contact me. I would love to talk to you about them.

Your partner in Christian discipleship,
