Our Advisory Team, or our “A-Team”, as we like to call them, is the group of leaders who work closely with the Lead Pastor and staff to make wise decisions about what we do and don’t do as a church. Several of the A-Team are also ministry leaders in the church.

He continues to work in pastoral counseling, specializing in prayer ministry, and supervises pastoral counseling students from various seminaries and graduate school counselor training programs.
