I am the third pastor in the history of LC3. In March of 2010, my life changed when the pastor of LC3 died suddenly. I stepped into his shoes and led the church until a pastor could be found. In October of that same year, I was named the senior pastor.
I am very passionate about reaching out to the community and being the Hands and Feet of Jesus Christ. I have served on the board of Coastal School Ministries, Fields of Faith and WinShape Camps in Murrells Inlet. I am also the baseball chaplain for St. James High School. Baseball is my favorite sport.
I come from a musical background where I performed across the United States with my family as a drummer and a singer. While in college, my resemblance to Garth Brooks sparked a career as a Garth Brooks tribute artist touring all over the world. I now use my likeness to the country music star as a ministry tool to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. In fact, my favorite verses from the bible are Matthew 28:19-20.
I have been married to my beautiful wife Ann for over 25 years, and have 3 awesome daughters, and 3 adorable grandchildren. When it’s warm outside, I love to be chillin’ on the waterway.
My wife Lauren and I started dating in 2015 and have been married since November of 2020. We do not have any kids, nor plans for them at the moment. I recently began to understand my calling into the ministry when I was 26. An influential tool God used in that calling is a Christian Hip-Hop artist-turned-pastor by the name of Trip Lee. In some of his music, Trip wrestles with the decision of how he can best be used by God to reach and love those around him.
Eventually, he is called to shift focus from his music ministry to the ministry of the local church. Likewise, I have wrestled with determining how I can best be used by God to reach and love those around me. For now, that vision involves me being on staff in this local church and pursuing knowledge via seminary. I am incredibly thankful for the opportunities God has given me, and I pray to accomplish all that He has called me to do.
My passion for youth ministry began as a result of a youth retreat experience called Chrysalis and since 1999, I’ve led retreats (and mission trips) where God has transformed many lives.
My hope is that through the ministries of Low Country Community Church, many (youth, children, and adults) will come to accept Jesus as their Savior and are encouraged to follow Him daily.
My wife, Katharine, and I met while attending Clemson University and have been married for twenty-three years. We have two daughters and a son, Sierra (19), Caroline (17), and Dakota (13).
I was raised in the Pawleys Island and Myrtle Beach areas. My husband Timothy and I have 3 children – 1 girl, Aubrey, and 2 boys, Zachary, and Joshua. I attended college at
Charleston Southern University for Nursing and have worked in many different capacities as a nurse. But my heart has always been for children, family and ministry. I have served and worked in children’s ministry and church preschools for several years and am thankful that God opened the door for me to make children and ministry my main focus here at Low Country Community Church.
I was born and raised in Texas. I have been married for 3 years now to my beautiful wife Destiny and together we have one baby girl, Jericho, also known as Co-Co. We lived in Texas until August 2021 when God called my family and I to South Carolina. I have been on staff at two other churches in their children’s departments for a combined 3 years. At 26 years old, I am very excited and humbled to be the Associate Director of Youth and Children’s Ministry here at LC3.
I was born and raised in Northeast PA. I have worked in the television industry for most of my life both in PA and SC. I earned an Emmy for an half hour sports production of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons triple A baseball team.
In 1996, I married my best friend Lee and moved to Murrells Inlet. We don’t have any children together. But my husband and are blessed with a rescue beagle named Lady. I started my own Video Production and Marketing Company after working at a local tv station here in Myrtle Beach.
I now use those God given talents to oversee our tech team and technical operations here at LC3 which includes video production, website and livestream. Coming from a football area in PA, my favorite teams are “We Are” Penn State and the Pittsburgh Steelers”.
I have had several jobs in the corporate world in my lifetime and can honestly say that working as the Administrative Assistant here at LC3 has been much more fulfilling!
I knew early on that LC3 was the church for me and loved what our mission statement reads “Creating an Environment to Introduce People to Jesus Christ”.
I have been married for over 25 years to Mike and have three adult children and five grandchildren.
I was born and raised Catholic, if you can call be raised by, only going to church on special holidays. I went to CCD classes which taught us about Catholic traditions and why we do them. I taught children’s ministry for about six years while attending a Catholic church. It wasn’t until my mid 30’s that my sister Yvette introduced me to a Charismatic Church in Georgetown, Texas, that I felt the Holy Spirit move me. Yvette had invited me on “A walk To Emmaus where I realized there was more to Christianity than what I had been taught. I have not been the same since taking that walk!
I read my Bible every day and listen to an app as well. There is so much more that I want to learn about our GOOD GOD and what my purpose here on earth is. I look with anticipation every day to what Jesus wants me to know.
