Husband. Dad to 5. Student Ministry Pastor. Follower of Jesus. Yatta yatta.


About 3 months ago I was asked to oversee not just middle school and high school, but college age as well. We now have 5ish people on our paid team.

  1. Myself as Student Ministries Pastor and High School Director.
  2. Christina as Middle School Ministries Director
  3. Todd as College Age Ministries Director (2 days a week)
  4. Sarah as High School Women’s Coordinator and Weekend Producer (half time)
  5. Aundrea- Administrative Assistant (1 day a week)

We started having staff meetings for our whole team together once a month and one thing we wanted to do was unify our ministries under one common banner and decide what we could and should do together instead of apart.

As a result, we landed on an overall missions statement we really like that we are all going to teach through next fall as we launch into our new leadership teams. Here it is:

Inviting a generation to understand, own, and live out a life changing faith in Jesus.

I also had a friend toy with an idea about a logo using the recycling theme. I liked it because it was 3 sided and implied that our ministries were cyclical and dependent on one another. Well he tweaked it some and I really like what we landed on. Here it is (the E is from our Encounter High School Logo, the R is from the Riptide Middle School Logo, and the NF is from New Format- the college age logo):

Maybe now we can get some current websites up and stuff.
