“My prayer for NHCC is that we don’t play church. That we are actively engaged in personal relationship with our heavenly Father that translates naturally into a community of believers who are passionate about His glory and others’ good. Being part of the elder board at North Hills is a great responsibility and privilege. The responsibility is clearly stated in Hebrews 13:17 (“they are keeping watch over your souls … as those who will have to give an account.”); the privilege is serving alongside men who love God’s Word and God’s people and model the grace of God as they minister to His body.”
