Deaconess Lonie Battle
Prayer Ministry Leader
In search of excellence, we do church on purpose!
We deliberately engage in matching people with Christ and bringing them into membership in His family, developing them to Christ-like maturity, and equipping them to ministry in life, in the church, and in the world, so that God’s name may be magnified.
Move all people to membership
Move all members to maturity
Move all mature members to ministry
To lead the membership in prayer, so that God’s name may be exalted, God’s people may be encouraged and edified. Unsaved people may be enlisted and all people may be engaged in ministry.
