How did you find GCC? Why did you stay? And what does your role here look like now?
We moved into the area and my wife’s sister thought that GCC would be a good fit for us from what she had heard. We stayed for several reasons, but one was the presence of God here. It was clear to my wife and I that GCC was pursuing God with all that it had, and we wanted “in” to that movement! Now, my wife Angela and I, and our six kids, have been attending Granger Community Church for 18 years.
I’ve also been able to serve the church for the past nine years, not only as a volunteer, but in several other key staff positions as the Director of Granger Kids and Pastor of Family Ministry. Recently, I served as the Executive Pastor of Adult Ministries at GCC, and then in the summer of 2020, was selected by the church’s Administrative Council, to step into the role of Lead Pastor.
My background includes a Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Biophysics from Manchester University, a Masters and PhD in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Notre Dame and most recently a Masters of Divinity from Moody Theological Seminary. My passion for seeing the local church continue to be a place of hope and help for the local community is something I carry with me into this new role as Lead Pastor.
What’s something new God’s been teaching you?
God DOES have the right to interrupt me at ANY point of my day, week, month and year, and expect that I will obey Him.
