Meet Our Staff Ministry Team

The Ocala West Staff Ministry Team is comprised of a diversity of people with deep and abiding faiths who have answered God's call on their life to serve our church and our community.  Their faith walks include great testimonies of God's goodness and transforming testimonies of how God has held onto them through the storms of life.  In other words, they are real people who genuinely believe in reaching out to and discipling those in our church and community.
