My wife Alina and I are excited about what God is doing in our lives. we hope that we can be a blessing to you. I believe that small groups are really the model of the church. While you never know where God is going to take a ministry, I do know that if we take away the small group body ministry, we have taken away one of the main purposes of the church. ROMANS 12:5 So we, though we are a number of persons, are one body in Christ, and are dependent on one another;

Stay tuned and be blessed!
