Family drama. That new show. Work demands. Exciting opportunities. Volunteering at church. Bad news.

You want to know what God wants you to do with all this—not to mention the questions you have about why He works the way He does. But you haven’t had a chance to talk with Him in a long time.

As your stress mounts and anxiety kicks in, your cell phone buzzes again … and again.

A former atheist to whom God graciously revealed Himself and brought salvation, Pastor Sherman is passionate about sharing the hope of the gospel and a relationship with Jesus with those in his community and beyond.
