What brought you to The Ridge?
One of my friends was going through a tough time and he asked me if I’d accompany him to go to The Ridge. I said, sure, let’s go! After a while, I started to get plugged in and started serving God through The Ridge.
How has God used The Ridge to impact your life?
I always loved the teaching and the people of The Ridge. Pastor Mike is never afraid to tell the Biblical truth just like it is. The teaching is always Bible based, authentic, Gospel oriented, and that’s how it’s supposed to be. I have grown as a husband and a father, and in my relationship with Jesus through the worship and teaching, and also the people.
How do you see God’s plan unfolding for the Ridge in the next 5-10 years?
I believe God will continue to use the Ridge to bring the people of Ankeny and its surrounding area to come and to know Him. The Ridge has so many attractive qualities (great worship; authentic, bold, Bible-based teaching, awesome people, etc.) that will help further God’s kingdom here on earth.
Do you have any specific memories you’d like to share about The Ridge?
My wife and I really enjoyed volunteering for a special event that the Ridge hosts every year, called Single Mom’s Morning Out. I thought, what an awesome idea, to love and serve these single moms for a day, so they get a glimpse of what God’s people are about.
