Purpose: We Get To Do This
November 17, 2019

Serving Jesus in the church is a privilege. We get to use our talents to advance the Kingdom of God! What about when we are away from church in our "everyday" lives? Pastor Kyle reminds us God has a purpose for us there, too. We get to serve Christ wherever we are. Jesus is not just a weekend thing!

What is worship?

Worship is our weekly gathering to praise God.  In worship we love God, we talk to God, we listen to God, we surrender to God, we commit to God.  It’s all about God’s relationship with us and how we choose to respond.

Vibrant worship is important to us.  We offer two distinct styles of worship – traditional and modern.  We believe that music and other art forms are gifts given by God to reach the core of the heart and connect us to God.  We invite you to come with new and exciting gifts to share in this area.

Pastor Kyle Thompson
Senior Pastor

My main responsibilities at SouthPark Church include casting vision for the direction of the church, teaching at the weekend worship services, and leading the staff. I am a graduate of High Point University and Harvard University. I am married to Lora and we have two sons.

Pastor Lindsay Rich
Pastor of Care & Faith Development

My main responsibilities are congregational care, adult faith development and helping lead our worship services. I am a graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity. I am ordained through the Friends of St. Mary's based in London and was raised in Charlotte. I am married to Ryan and have three children who keep my house noisy, my fridge empty, and my heart full.

Kevin Ache
Director of Creative

I get to help work with several ministries including communications, production, hospitality and modern worship. My wife Claire and I moved to CLT in 2015 when I joined the staff, and we have a little girl. We love our church and we love our city!

Denise Spittle
Office Manager

I manage the SouthPark Church office, and I also oversee the administration of the church’s finances. I was blessed to have been raised in the church by Christian parents and grandparents. I realized recently what a gift that was when I was chairing the Children’s Ministry team at my own church. It has become a passion of mine to do all I can within my personal life (sharing with my children and grandchildren) and through my church to be sure this word becomes written on the hearts of our youth!

Sara Terrell
Administrative Assistant

My primary responsibility is to support our staff and ministry leaders in their needs, which means that I do a little bit of everything. My educational background is in music; I received my bachelor’s degree in composition from Florida State and my master’s in choral conducting from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. I enjoy using my musical gifts as another means to serve. I sing in the choir and serve as a lay musician. I also sing choirs in the community.

Dr. Joan McGill
Director of Senior Adult Ministry

In my role at SouthPark Church, I serve our older congregation. I visit and/or call older adults who are or have been hospitalized and/or are homebound. I serve as staff liaison for Congregational Care and the Adults Plus ministry. I received my BSN from Case Western Reserve University, my MSN from the University of Kentucky, and my PhD from the University of Alabama at Birmingham where my research was in gerontology.

Dr. Katie Ann McCarty
Director of Traditional Music & Organist

I lead and direct the music & worship in the Traditional Service. I graduated from Arizona State University with my doctorate and master's in music and organ performance, and was a Fulbright Scholar in music and organ performance at the Bordeaux Conservatoire in Bordeaux, France. I love the vision of SouthPark Church and my two daughters and I love being a part of this family!

Cole Bryant
Worship Leader

My role at SouthPark Church is to help create a worship environment so that everyone can connect with God, and to help welcome others who may be worshiping for the first time. I am married to my wife, Savannah.

Jenni McKeown
Director of Children's Ministry

My primary responsibility is to take care of our youngest members and guests (0 - 5th grade). We create an atmosphere that will bring these little ones closer to Jesus and give them a strong foundation for the future. I am a graduate of Florida State University and worked for Marriott for 18 years as an Event Manager. I am also a life-long United Methodist and have served God in the Church since I was 10 years old. I’m married to Shawn and we have 2.5 boys (one due in May).

Chris & Nikki Bidell
Directors of Student Ministry

We lead the Student Ministry and help provide spaces for students to meet, know and follow Jesus! We both an extensive experience with Young Life, and we hope to continue building community and support for students at SouthPark. Chris is a teacher at Ardrey Kell High School and Nikki is an experienced MOntessori educator. They love traveling, hiking, history, reading and taking their two rescued Cocker Spaniels to the dog park.

Les Lingle
Director of Weekend Production

I oversee Sunday morning production and have served as audio engineer since 2016. I work with a great team of volunteers every Sunday morning to help to create an atmosphere for worship. I also handle our church’s audio podcast which has a world outreach.
