George Ohmstede (b) Sept 2021

How Christ has impacted my life: "I was fortunate to be raised in a Christian home with parents who continuously pointed me toward Jesus.  Although I was raised in church, I didn't come to know Jesus as my Savior until I was 17.  I am thankful for the Lord's pursuit and for my upbringing in Christ. I have served in vocational ministry since 2001 and desire to do so until the Lord says otherwise.  Jesus has impacted my life greatly in all areas and my life verse speaks to this: Phil 2:5, "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." Jesus led with humility and truth, and it is my heart's purpose to pursue the same through the ministry he has granted me."
