Maybe you have heard the words of the old gospel song, “If it had not been for the Lord on my side, tell me, where would I be now.” I can say with much confidence- if it had not been for OMA- tell me, where would I be now? I can certainly say I would not be where I am now, and I for sure do not even want to think of where I could have been.

It has been through the discipleship and teaching received during my season at OMA that have laid the foundation for my 28 years of Christian living. It was at OMA that I gave my life to Christ, heard the call to ministry and received intense discipleship to learn how to stay the course the Lord had for my life.

The principles I learned, and the convictions of the Holy Spirit I gained at OMA have shaped and fashioned all areas of my personal and ministry life. They have now become practices for how to raise our family. How to lead the church I am pastoring. And the passion we have to disciple numerous people into ministry.

At OMA, I experienced what the Apostle Paul wrote to the young Pastor Timothy: “Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 1:13)
