I was born in  Charleston, South Carolina but grew up with a father in the Air Force and as a result have called many cities and states home.  I  went to college at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee and graduated with a degree in Vocal Performance.  After graduation, I married the most beautiful girl I had ever seen, Cori, and took my first job as a Worship Pastor in Cincinnati, Oh.  After 10 years in music I knew that the Lord was calling me to Tallahassee to pastor a church and I have been so excited about what God is doing at Capital City ever since.  My passion is to see people come to a real understanding of what God wants to do in their lives.  Seeing lives changed by the power of God and by His grace is the driving force in my life.  Cori and I have two children.  My daughter Hayden is 10 and my little guy, Harrison is 7 and being their dad is the coolest thing I get to do although fishing runs a close second!


    I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida and lived there my whole life until I decided to go to Cleveland, Tennessee where I attended Lee University.  It was there that I met an amazing man, got to travel the world with Campus Choir and then graduated in 2003 with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies.  After getting married to the world's greatest guy, we began our ministry journey in Cincinnati, Ohio and we've never looked back!   Along the way the Lord blessed Matt and I with two  kiddos and I'm still trying to figure out how I got so lucky as to be their mom! Although worship has always been my passion, I stepped into the role of Worship Pastor in 2013 and I've never been more excited.  I love to see people worship the Lord and I'm so glad that I get to experience His presence with this church family every week! 


    Kairisa and I come to Tallahassee by way of Chicago, Illinois.  We have been married 6 years and have 4 amazing kids.  We have been feeling a call to ministry for quite some time but the opportunity came unexpectedly by way of a new job far from our home.  Thankfully Kairisa trusted God and I enough to pick up our family and move and we are incredibly excited about the new things God is allowing us to do.  Kairisa and I are both in the process of becoming licensed ministers and we are excited to be a part of a church that is endeavoring to love the world like Jesus does.



    Russell and I have been married 16 years and have 4 children and hail from the small town of Kingstree, South Carolina.  Russell and I moved to Tallahassee in July of 2015 after feeling the urging to be a part of a growing church that was hungry for a move of God.  I became the Children's Pastor at the end of the year and since then I find myself amazed week after week at how much the kids are teaching me when I thought it was supposed to be the other way around.  My passion is to see children develop in their love and hunger for God and my goal is to help produce kids who know and have experienced God for themselves.
