Our Pastor:

Over the course of my years in ministry, I have been amazed at God’s great love and kindness. He has allowed me to serve in some of the greatest places with many servant-minded people. East Side is filled with people who love the Lord and want to serve Him in anyway they can. What a blessing! I count it a privilege to invest in their lives and shepherd this church toward fulfilling the purposes for which we are called—bringing glory to our Lord by connecting people to God, others and the world through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Connect. Grow. Go!
