 Pastor Chris Lawton:
Pastor Chris Lawton started his ministry in 2009, where he began by serving in a youth leadership/youth pastoral role followed by positions as Youth Pastor & Director of Christian Education, Associate Pastor, and eventually Senior Pastor. Pastor Chris felt called early on to take on the
mission that is based upon the biblical Acts church, which was built on spreading the Gospel and building genuine relationships, while sharing, caring and supporting one another in the love of Christ. Pastor Chris feels called to be "genuine," while meeting people where they are and breaking down the negative walls that are many times found in churches.
