Who We Are

pastorfamilyPastor Richard Murray
Pastor Murray has been in full-time ministry since 2007.  He has experience in all aspects of a pastorate including: overseeing various ministries, supervising staff, conducting deacon, church, and business meetings, teaching (all ages), preaching, baptizing, discipling, and evangelizing. With a true love of God’s people and a burden for the lost, Pastor Murray is very outgoing, energetic, and sociable.

It is his desire to reach the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to teach, preach, and fellowship with God’s people to grow in faith and grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ our Savior.
