Clinton is the Pastor of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Moses Lake. He has been married for 43 years and has a son, daughter, and 2 grandchildren.
His favorite Bible passage is 2 Corinthians 5:19, 20. (English Standard Version)
19“In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God”.
He believes the verses are foundational to the ministry of Serve Moses Lake. They express God’s unconditional love for the human race. No matter who we are or what we have done, God is not counting our sins against us. They remind us to see each person as loved and redeemed by Jesus. As Christians, we are to be God’s love in action. To invite people to be reconciled to God so they can experience His amazing grace and be transformed by His love.
