I’m Sam West, pastor of
Main Street Baptist Mission. I am responsible for overseeing the ministries of
Main Street Baptist Mission and for shepherding the people there. I have a
heart for community ministry and a desire to see the church reach out to those
in need. Likewise, I have a desire to help those in need find their place in
the body of Christ.
