Tony is our lead pastor. He has an out-of-the-box approach to local church but embraces the fact that we still have to operate within the box; we’re still human. He doesn’t wear a suit but thinks that tight jeans are just that… too tight. He loves the cozy living room feel with a cup of strong coffee in hand while reading a good novel with the lighting just right. But then you have to risk big lest the coziness become too familiar.
He loves Jesus. He can’t put his finger on what’s so attractive about Him, but he is fine with it. He thinks that Jesus came to give LIFE! He loves his town, likes dark chocolate, won’t be content until he summits the mountain and wants you to know that if you recently became a Christian and are throwing out all of your Lord of the Rings books, he’ll take them! He’s a life’r.
Sara is married to Tony. Its almost full time. But she is also our program’s director/30,000 feet up vision sharer. She says that little guys can do big things too! She’s one of the most encouraging peeps to hang out with, kind of like this (the first 2:30):
She’s a daughter, sister, wife, mama of four, grandmama of two and… that's it! She thinks that big FORD trucks are the only way except when they are broken. She likes Petra, Rez Band and Bethel Music but hates Mint ice-cream! #FortStJohnFOREVER
