Our Staff

Dedicated. Passionate. Accessible.


The success of our church begins with our minister and staff.  You’ll find them to be integral forces in carrying out our church mission. Their relentless energy is contagious. And, they’re accessible. They want to hear from you, get to know you and provide help when you need it.  Please contact them directly to set up an appointment, as staff members are rarely available for drop-in appointments.
