Greetings brothers and sisters ... ( ) I'm a 41-year-old born again follower of Jesus Christ. My wife and I volunteer as youth leaders for an SBC affiliated church in the St. Louis Metro area. We were called to that ministry in 2006. I've also since been ordained as a deacon. Lately, the Lord has been teaching me that I have to work on pride and a tendency to want glorify myself instead of Him. I am thankful to Him for pointing this out to me and I am thankful for the evidence that He continues the work He began in me. I look forward to participating in the forums.
