  • Wade has a unique call on his life to practically equip the church in the work of the ministry & helping broken people find hope through the Gospel of Jesus. I know this because he’s done both for me.

    He’s guided me to become a more helpful and effective communicator through his gift of candor. Never in a tone that is degrading, but in a patient hopeful way that helps build the tools necessary to be better.

    When my mom was dying in a hospital, he stopped a church service to pray for my family. His anointing as a pastor has carried me through dark seasons of my life.
