Meet our Staff.

At The Lighthouse Church our goal is to create a real, organic community. Our hope is that we would do “life together” and not just “church”. You can expect to hear the word of God preached, lifting our voices in song, prayer, and the celebration of communion.  In all of it, we rejoice as we see lives transformed through Christ!  All are welcome and we hope to see you soon on Sunday morning.

I have the privilege to serve as the Lead Pastor at Lighthouse. It is my calling and passion to lead and serve the people of our community, showing them the life changing love of Jesus. I am honored to serve with an incredible team of people who share a passion for others and believe God is doing big things at Lighthouse.
I am blessed to be married Ashley and together we parent Jackson, Jonah, James, and Juliet. We are always in search of the next adventure to go on together.
I enjoy reading, music, running, cycling, and a good cup of coffee but I most enjoy connecting with people and living out community with those around me.

I joined the Lighthouse Team in March of 2015 as the Associate Pastor. My wife, Teegan,  and I have 4 amazing kiddos Jayden, Noah, Cameron, and Liam. They love to serve, and love being kids. I am also blessed to lead the church in worship along side an incredibly talented team. I believe in the value of investing in others and building authentic community, I believe we truly have the ability to be Jesus to all who seeks him. In my down time I enjoy spending time with my family adventuring around our beautiful state. I also enjoy a good cup of coffee, cycling, and a great book!  I’m so thankful and honored to serve God and his people and look forward to connecting with you!

“The Children’s Ministry at Lighthouse desires kids to encounter God. We want our kids to have fun, build relationships, grow in their faith and know Christ in a deep, life-changing way. We hope to provide the kids at Lighthouse a safe haven for their feelings, a place to learn and change, and the desire to keep coming back week after week.

“Lighthouse believes God created family units and that each member is important. In doing so, we want every member of our church family to feel at home when they come to church. We look forward to getting to know each child at Lighthouse and helping to guide them to become the people that God created them to be!”

“I have been called to serve the Lord and to help others know and feel the love of Christ. About four years ago I felt the Lord transforming my life and calling me into a deeper relationship with Him. My passion and fire for sharing the Gospel motivated me to enroll in Bible College in which I am currently studying to learn more about Christ Jesus.

“Our mission is to use innovative ways to teach God’s word to the youth and to help them grow in their personal relationship with Christ. The anchor to our ministry is using biblical sound lessons that impart the love of Christ and teach the youth how to apply the Gospels in their lives. Our goal to be moral stewards to the youth and to go beyond the doors of the church to serve our community with outreach programs. Finally, developing relationships among the youth is important to us, and we amplify how much fun it is to be a Christian with monthly youth events.”
