I’m looking forward to seeing how God will continue to use him” -Dunia Mershon, Sunday School Coordinator.
“When I first met Christopher Ingles, I felt he was a common youth, the boy next door you might say. However, over the last couple of years I have watched this youth become a man of God. From the time he received the Holy Ghost he began to grow in leaps and bounds. He has become a fine musician/singer and a faithful messenger of God. I am excited as I continue to spend time with him and watch him grow in Christ Jesus. His dedication to God, his church, and his family is evident in his daily walk. His light shines and is bright before him. His thoughts are seldom of himself but for those around him. Chris is a deserved winner of the Student Of The Month. Congratulations Chris,” – Scott Green, Sunday School Teacher.
“There is so much I can say about Chris. He has a huge heart, he is very kind, he is willing to help anytime he is asked, I could go on. But what I love most about Chris is his love and dedication for God. I love his dedication to the drama team. He spends sometimes hours at a time just to learn a new song. I love to listen when he ministers. I can see amazing growth in him the past few months. He is really stepping out of his comfort zone. I am so very proud of him. I feel God has great things in store for you Chris. Keep on the right path and always put God first in all you do,”- Jessica Ingles, Drama Team Leader.
