  • “To embrace ones Heritage is to show Honor and Respect. To leave a Legacy is to Bless and Release” Barry McAlpin.

  • “As a Christian we may embrace the church, our pastor, our experiences and our Christian heritage, but many times we fail to embrace the cross. Ultimately we have embraced the benefits of the cross but fail to embrace the suffering of the cross. We are thankful Christ died for us, but we have yet to learn the art of dy…ing to self.”  Barry McAlpin
  • “The difference between instructing and discipling is one teaches and the other Fathers.” Barry McAlpn
