Chaplain Michael Batenburg, Founder
I believe because I want, need, and choose to believe. In my heart, I know that God created everything and gave us His only son, Jesus, who died to save us from our sins. Knowing this and believing in Jesus Christ, I am a better man, living as a humble servant-follower. Being a servant to the Church, I am given the gift of making the lives of others a little better, which I am privileged to impact.
For the first 45 years of my life, I served myself, my wants, and all my desires. Although it seemed success had been achieved, it left me lost, empty, and soul searching for my purpose and true happiness. Since 2010, my focus shifted from serving myself to serving others. Humility set in and as I started making my faith journey a priority, to know God, I became an ambassador to His great commission. It has allowed me to live my life more freely, see the world more clearly, and has truly made a difference in my life. This has brought me to a place where I now know who I am in Christ and what I am here to do until I am honored to be called to serve Him in eternity.
