Rev. Henry Stamper
Henry's desire, not just as a pastor but as a Christian, has always been to stand in the center of God’s will for his life. To seek God’s will and God's way. To be obedient to His plans and His purposes. To give God complete charge to chart the course for his life and to have the faith and convictions to follow that course. He looks forward to discovering together what God’s will is for each of us. Henry and his wife Susan have three children: Hailey (daughter) and Corey & Carly (son & daughter-in-law). They also have two grandsons, Ryland & Arlo.
