As Executive Pastor, Todd oversees the ever-increasing administrative tasks that come with a growing congregation and church staff. He is responsible to ensure that everyone (particularly the church staff) is working together toward a common goal.
My role is connecting people to Jesus Christ and to each other. It's my privilege to direct a growing number of home based small groups meeting across the area during the week. In addition, I oversee our Sunday morning adult classes which we call Life Groups. To facilitate these ministries, I join with those called to lead by equipping them with the ministry tools needed to disciple those in their circle of influence and beyond. In addition, God has allowed me to provide counsel, teach, marry, bury, recruit, and keep our folks looking outward and upward until He comes.

We must thank Mark for his fine duties of cleanliness. Have you ever stepped into the church rest room to be knocked down by the pine-scented cleaner aroma billowing from the stall. It doesn’t happen by itself. Thank You Mark!
I love working at the church, it has been over 10 years now. Some of my jobs include overseeing the primary database, bookkeeping, meeting with vendors, supervising office volunteers, and oversight of general office operations.
