TCOC is blessed with godly men and women who direct and implement the vision and mission of God. Part of our leadership team consists of the Ministry Staff, Support Team and Shepherds.
TCOC is led by a dynamic and passionate team of servants who are devoted to living out the life of God. We meet together to build a deeper relationship with each other so that we can encourage those in our direct ministries.
Born, raised, and loved by a single-parent Mom in the city of Detroit. We moved to the Downriver area in 1989. I met my beautiful wife, Jessica, in 1996, and we began our family in 1999. I have four exceptional children with whom I enjoy watching movies, reading comics, making art, and playing sports.
I developed a love for all God's people while working in the service industry for 24 years. I left my role as a Zone Vice President of Operations to pursue God's calling for me here at TCOC.
I began my faith journey at TCOC in 2008 and became a Shepherd in 2015. My LOVE for God and TCOC provides me joy and happiness daily. Broken and Repaired. Lost and Found. Wounded and Healed. Because of God's everlasting love, I have been transformed by love to serve. We may not have met yet but be assured, I love you, and more importantly, God loves you.
I grew up in the downriver area and am lucky enough to be married to my best friend, Chris. We have four amazing children and in my free time I enjoy reading, watching movies, working out and spending time with family.
I started attending TCOC over 14 years ago because I wanted my children to have a strong foundation in faith.
Now as the Children's Minister, I enjoy partnering with the parents on their child's own spiritual journey, and equipping families with tools they need as their children grow.
I am a passionate, energetic, and outspoken follower of Christ. I believe the people of this world have a huge opportunity to love in Christ. My ministry is to instill this basic idea of Christianity - Love God, Love Others!
I love experiencing the Gospel of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection through singing, playing, teaching, and listening. Believing that sharing this gift to the world is a part of who I am is what helps me to uplift others’ spirit in song, word, and deed.
I graduated from Rochester College with a Bachelors in Music Education. I am a lover of Ultimate Frisbee, baking scones, playing with my nephews, the outdoors, and a good board/card game.
TCOC is led by a group of men called Shepherds. In the Bible, Shepherds were the title that described the way God desired for His people to be led. The Shepherds at TCOC deeply love God and those who worship here and desire to bless, encourage and guide all to a deeper relationship with Him.
I have been a part of the TCOC family for 40+ years. I married my beautiful wife, Jody, in 2004. I have served in the teen and worship ministry for many years. God has surrounded me with so many amazing people that have made me into who I am today. My desire is to love on God’s people as much as He has loved on me.
I have been married to my incredible wife, Kim, since 1990 and have two great sons, Caleb and Ben. God and our TCOC family has guided us through the many trials that shaped me and my family. I was blessed to work with our youth for many years and God recently called us to minister to our college kids and as a member of our safety and security team.
