Pastor Burt & Tieler Taylor

Associate Pastors

Our family of five is such a blessing to us. We are originally from Kansas City, Missouri and moved here for the sole purpose to serve the people at Church on a Mission. We are a young family who strive to love the Lord and all of his people. The main thing we try to teach our children is to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31.
