Our Pastors


Our pastors and church staff are here to connect with you. We’d like to help you develop your relationship with Jesus Christ. That means being available to listen to, talk with, pray for and worship beside you.


The goal of our Pastors is to develop, lead, and challenge our members and visitors in their quest for a better relationship with Jesus. They are here to provide friendship, safety, and care to our students and families


We encourage you to get to know our pastors. Talk with them and allow them to pray with and for you. Jesus is the priority and Families of Faith and the common thread throughout everything we do.
