From Pastor JV and Moriah: “Rome is home away from home for us, and we love pastoring students at North Rome. This is such a wonderful church and we are so thankful that the Lord has called us here. We believe the best is yet to come for the Student Ministry at NRCOG & that we are stepping into a season where students will know Christ and live a life that is passionate about Him.”
