From growing up in the church culture of the south to living the past eight years in New England, Jay has a broad range of experience from which to relate to people of all ages. Yet it is the truth of Jesus Christ – His holiness, His sacrifice, His promise of eternity – that anchors each ministry served.
Through Sunday morning and weekly Bible studies, student ministry, and children’s programming, we want the truth of Christ to be taught and lived out so that those who do not know Christ will see His reflection most clearly.
