Rev. Paine is available for preaching services without respect to particular denominations.  While he is ordained in the Christian and Missionary Alliance, he presents Biblical truths in dynamic ways that are not intrusive, obtrusive, or exclusive.  He attempts to come alongside a congregation and present encouraging and challenging thoughts that are God-honoring and helpful to the human predicament.
