Sermons on Husbands & Fathers

God designs marriage to be His sanctifying tool to shape us into the image of His Son and His pulpit to proclaim His redemptive love to the world.
Dads in the Church
There is no moment in our lives when we don’t need fresh manna taught from the Word of God to fill our souls, especially in the context of the local church.
