Who We Are

Our Team & Leadership

The Leadership Team of Intersect is made up of people from every walk of life, all of which work in jobs/careers outside of the church. While there is a lead pastor, each serves as a pastor (shepherd) in some capacity within their own intersections of influence. While some ministry leaders are highlighted here for their specific roles within the community, we recognize that every member of the body is called to lead at some level. We recognize that the degree to which we can work together as a community (body) is the degree to which we will bring the hope of Jesus to the world.
