Lead Pastor

I get really excited about helping people discover the excitement of a deep and meaningful relationship with Jesus.  My own story covers a lot of ground- some good and some not so good.  It was an incredibly freeing feeling when I realized that God’s grace doesn’t depend on me at all.  Since I embraced that simple truth, I have fallen so in love with Jesus that tree is literally nothing that i don’t trust Him with.

I learned theology and earned a Master of Divinity at Erskine Theological Seminary.  I learned to be a follower of Christ  by serving with really faithful people through two church plants, including Ekklesia.  I’d love to share your journey with you.

It is exciting for me to see how children grow in their understanding of who God is and how much He loves them.  My own faith story began as a religious routine when I was young, but has become a real and meaningful experience in recent years.  It was a great moment for my faith when I discovered that spending time with God makes such a huge difference in my relationship with him.  Since that discovery, I have made spending time with God a priority in my life.

I studied Accounting at USC-Aiken, and later opened my own Hair Salon.  I learned to be a follower of Christ by spending time with other believers and studying the life of Jesus.  I am passionate about helping children have a real relationship with Jesus.

Worship Leader

I get really excited about opportunities to travel and experience new cultures, especially if it involves a plane or boat.  My own faith story has been a decades-long journey that began when I was 5 years old, following a family devotional that introduced me to Christ’s sacrifice.  It was a great moment for my faith when I discovered that faith in God is not just a scientific or historical gamble, but can be rooted in a real relationship.  Since that discovery, I have grown in my prayer life, seen God at work more clearly, and become much more comfortable sharing my faith with others.

I studied psychology at Augusta State University.  I learned to be a follower of Christ by reading the Bible and allowing it to shape my behavior.   I am very passionate about music and would love to record more of the songs I write.
