Tom Foley- Business Administrator

Passion for the Church & Kingdom of God:

To reflect the light of Christ. Jesus says (John 8:12) that He is the light of the world, whoever follows Him will not walk in darkness, but will have everlasting life. The Church must be the city on the hill, so the world may see the love and compassion of the Church, which is through, and in, Christ. The light of the Church shines brightly when it serves and cares for others.
God has gifted everyone with various talents, abilities, ambitions and opportunities to serve and bless others. God has a plan for His church and His people; Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Learner, Connectedness, Context, Relator, Responsibility.
