The thing that excites me the most about serving on the building team is being able to use my talents, that God has given me, to construct a building that will be used to further God’s Kingdom. Understanding this structure will be used as a tool and my role is to help mold this tool into a working piece of equipment for the enjoyment of all who worship and come to rely on what we are doing for God. This is such a gratifying endeavor and will be a true blessing to be a part of this.
