Who We Are

Without an exception, our staff would agree that the team God has assembled here is nothing short of miraculous. We don’t always agree, but we function with harmony. One’s weakness is another’s strength, and we work together to compliment each other’s God-given gifts and abilities. While we are far from perfect, we are real. While we may say the wrong things at times, you will find us together, working with one common purpose – to see the Great Commission of Jesus fulfilled in and through us. We know that getting to know us will take time. We hope this serves as a resource for you to get the basics down and experience who we are in person.  Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, we are looking forward to getting to know you as well.
