Welcome to The Fountain! That’s what you’re likely to hear when you enter our doors. And you will continue to feel that warm sense of welcome wherever you go at The Fountain. That’s one of the things that led me to say Yes to serving as the Senior Pastor here.
I have to admit that when I first came to check out The Fountain I was not only wearing my pastor’s hat, but also my husband’s/father’s hat. I needed to see if Fountain of Life would be a place where my family would feel at home. To my delight I discovered people just like me; decent, hard-working people who wanted to follow Christ with their whole life, as individuals, in their marriages, and for the sake of their families. They were imperfect people like me who needed to know every day how much God loves them. And I said to myself, “This is a place that I (we) can call home.”
Of course there are many other reasons that I am glad to be here. First, I enjoy a strong leadership team with a heart for God and others. That’s very important to me as a pastor since there is no way to minister effectively in a congregation without good people serving alongside of one another. Next, I have been blessed with a wonderful, dedicated staff. From the Preschool to Youth and Children’s Ministries as well as all of the great opportunities for Adults, the staff demonstrates the meaning of true servanthood every day. And finally, I just can’t say enough about how much people enjoy God’s Word and eagerly look for opportunities to share the message of Christ both locally and around the world. In fact, Youth and Adults serve side-by-side in mission and ministry at different times and places throughout the year.
My prayer for you is that you will discover what I have found at The Fountain. Not a perfect church with perfect people, but people who are learning to love and trust our Savior, Jesus Christ, more and more each day.
On the Journey with You,
