Perimeter Church, as well as my life, have been shaped in countless ways by Dr. Haggai. I would hate to think where my ministry and our church would have been without the friendship, instruction and insights of Dr. Haggai.

So I am uniquely honored and blessed to have been a disciple of Dr. Haggai. His ministry will live on through my life and ministry as well as untold numbers of people like me and ministries like Perimeter. Few will be as worthy of his Master’s words to him entering glory, “Well done thou good and faithful servant.”
