CFI Pastors

I am a Pastor to Pastors as well as a spiritual father to many.  I am privileged to give spiritual oversight to all CFI churches, as well as a few others who have chosen to become part of my spiritual oversight. It is my goal to serve these pastors and churches by helping them become more established and fruitful in their endeavors.
