Ministry and Mission
In addition to his deep understanding of theology and ability to deliver thought-provoking and inspiring sermons, Morgan’s passion for ministry within the church, the local community and beyond radiates the love of God to all he serves.
Morgan is an active participant in mission work, supporting a wide-range of ministry opportunities. Whether volunteering for VBS, fellowshipping at church activities, visiting and praying with those in need, ringing gongs for Rise Against Hunger or, unabashedly using his broken Spanish while dining with the poorest in Guatemala, Morgan strives to spread relational wealth by bringing the love of Christ into every situation.
Morgan is an avid reader of not only theology, but fiction, business and church building genres. Below are some of his favorite reads.
