Pastors & Staff

Meet the team.

We believe that God raises up leaders from among the Body; sets them apart, and equips them through the Holy Spirit to do His work. Our team is comprised of people just like you who seek to be obedient to God's call in their lives, to love others, and to glorify God through Biblically sound service. We are first and foremost servants.
