Take a deeper look into what makes us unique. Read our vision, meet our staff.
Our vision is to be the Spiritual Crossroads of SouthPark, leading people to life rich in Christ.
We are currently building a development for the new home of SouthPark Church, launching the ‘Love SouthPark’ initiative, a project to create a place where the church and community intersect. SouthPark Church believes that love transforms, and we want to be present in our SouthPark community in big ways.
Jesus inspires us, especially when He says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). We are a group of imperfect people seeking to live abundant lives. Rich, abundant life is all about loving relationships with God and each other.
The Place To Belong:
We belong in rich relationships with God and people. Everyone is welcome here to explore what it means to live life to the full. We belong together on the journey.
The Place to Become:
God meets us where we are and helps us become something more. We all have greatness in our personal stories, as well as brokenness and even darkness. God knows everything about us – the good, the bad, and the ugly. God is ready to accept us as we are, and to help us become the people he created us to be.
The Place To Be Known:
Everyone has a story. We want to be known for stories of life change. We tell real stories of how God transforms our lives for the better. What’s your story? We would love to be a part of it!
SouthPark Church is a community of friendly people who are learning to have healthy relationships with God and one another. We're a group of imperfect people seeking to live abundant lives. We gather together once a week to worship God, find encouragement and hope, and grow closer to Jesus.
We'd love for you to join us at Phillip's Place Regal Theater on Sundays at 9:00 am for Traditional Worship or 10:30 am for Modern Worship. We've created two unique styles of worship that you can read about on our worship page. There's no dress code, so come as you are. We can't wait to meet you!
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.
My primary responsibility is in Adult Faith Formation – which covers our small groups and adult classes; Hospitality & Engagement; Congregational Care & Worship. My undergraduate degree is in Religion and Psychology from Duke University and my master’s degree in Counseling is from UNC Charlotte. I became an ordained Deacon in the United Methodist Church in 1997. It is a joy and a privilege to serve God in this faith community.
I oversee several departments including family ministries, young adults, communication, production and modern worship. My passion is using creativity to introduce the next generation to Jesus, letting the Gospel spread through fascination. I studied graphic design, sports ministry and Biblical studies and graduated from Ohio Christian University in 2011. My wife and I moved to CLT in 2015 when I joined the staff at SouthPark Church. I love my wife, motorcycles, fishing and our golden retriever.
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!
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.
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.
I’m a classically-trained musician and felt an early calling to use my gifts to bring God glory. I earned a BA in Organ Performance and an MAE in Music at California Lutheran University. As the leader of Traditional Worship at SouthPark Church, I play the organ and piano, direct all church choirs and vocal ensemble for children, students and adults. I direct an auditioned choral group called Caritas Acapella Ensemble. I’m married to Quay and we have 4 children.
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 recently became engaged to my fiancé.
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. I am married to Jackie, and we have a son, Grant.
