Co-pastor / Co-founder (teaching, discipleship, worship)
Curtis has been in vocational ministry since 1994. He is Canadian – a fact he mentions far too frequently in sermons – and he has two amazing daughters, Kyra (b.1998) at UNC Chapel Hill, and Megan (b.2000) at NC State. He loves to fish and read. He is a big believer that following Jesus is primarily about getting better at being human. If you attend on a Sunday morning and are not inspired somehow to be a better human, the Way-of-Christ was likely not preached.

CJ has been married to his wife, Holly, since 2003. He is father to 2 beautiful children (Abby b.2008, Noah b.2010). He grew up playing pretty much every sport possible imaginable, and has a HUGE love for Soccer. CJ graduated with a Masters Degree in Biblical Languages from GTU in Berkeley, CA … and he loves AMC’s The Walking Dead. While those 2 facts are not connected in any way, they offer strong evidence of good balance in his life.
