Bromance – Jonathan & David
(The Importance of Biblical Friendships and Partnership)

Pastor Ronald C. Session has a unique brand of preaching that synthesizes doctrinal truths into everyday language. Listening to Rev. Ron preach, is like having a conversation with a friend. His approach to the scriptures is not so high that you cannot relate to the message but is challenging enough to keep you reaching for righteousness. He prefers the use of colorful and relevant illustrations that he draws from personal life experiences, media, and his extensive readings to drive his point home.

Pastor Robert White
Who is your Paul? How Should Men Disciple?

Robert White is the Lead Pastor at Freedom Church in Bedford, TX. He and his wife, Marisha, have two beautiful daughters: Makenzie and Makayla. Robert grew up in Long Beach, California where he spent most of his life running from the destiny God had placed in him. As the son of a pastor, Robert was the “typical PK”. In proximity to completing his education at California State University at Dominguez Hills, Robert had an encounter with God what would alter his life’s path.

 After accepting his call to be a mouthpiece of the gospel of Jesus Christ, Robert began to work alongside his father, the late Pastor Robert L. White, in ministry as a Worship  Leader, Young Adult Leader, and  preacher. In July 2006, Robert and his wife sensed God telling them it was time for a change. After prayer and research, they relocated to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and continued to develop their ministry at the Cornerstone Baptist Church. Robert served as Youth/Young Adult Minister for several years before being sent by Pastor McKissic to lead and launch Cornerstone Church North (now Freedom Church).
