Our Staff


Senior Pastor  

Let me be the first to say, WELCOME HOME. I hope that from the very first step you take or have taken onto one of our campuses you felt right at home. StoneBridge is a family. It is a big family, but a family none the less. In our family we have people just like you, people who want to connect with God. That is what we try to help people do. Through our messages and music, classes and programming for kids and students, small groups and service opportunities, we do our best to help people connect with God. There is no doubt about it, God is crazy about you, and so are we. If there is anything we can do to help you connect with the God of the Universe, please let us know. Give us a chance to show you the love of God.
