DR. JOHN WELBORN
I love my Salem Church family so much because we are on-mission to Love God and Love People in our city, just as Jesus instructed. I am so thankful that I get to teach the Bible and lead an incredible team of people to Make Disciples and Multiply Churches to the Glory of God! I look forward to seeing you around Staten Island or next time visit us at Salem Church.
