MEET OUR TEAM
All of our pastors, staff, and leaders have one common goal: growing healthy followers of Jesus by increasing Biblical literacy and Biblical obedience. In order to serve you best, we want to get to know you, and we think it is important for you to get to know us. Church must be more than a place you go to; it has to become a people you are a part of. Genuine relationships are a huge part of what a really church is.
