Who We Are
Hi, I'm the pastor here at Crossroads, and I believe the hope of Heaven is that everyone can and will have a living relationship with Jesus Christ. I was born in Burke County, GA before getting my Masters of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary. My wife, Rachel, and I have two sons, Max and Gus. I love spending time with family, watching a good movie, and playing guitar.

Directors of Student Ministries
We've been the youth directors at Crossroads since 2009 and desire to build relationships with our youth to help them discover a love for Jesus. Together, we have three beautiful girls, Cami, Mati, and Milli. New adventures are always welcome, so we'd love to help your students grow in their faith.
Director of Children's Ministry and Playschool
I'm the Children's Director here at Crossroads and have been a long time face among the children of our church. My husband, Rick, and I see Crossroads as our second home, and our two daughters, Cari and Cassidy, were both involved in the playschool. It's my desire that every child should know, love, and live for God.
Contemporary Worship Leader
I'm the head of our worship team here at Crossroads. I love cultivating a healthy environment for the praise of God every week and enjoy providing opportunities for the church to engage with singing, musicianship, and audio/visual roles. Together with my wife, Betsy, I have two wonderful children, Emma and Xander. My passions are family, soccer, and DIY projects.
My husband, two kids, and I moved to Perry in 2001, and Crossroads has been our church home the entire time. I've served in many capacities through the years and feel my calling is to use my god-given gifts of administration and service to further the kingdom of God through our ministries. I enjoy leading the hymns in the 9:00 service and singing in the praise band at the 10:45 service.
I was married for 55 years to my wonderful husband, Jim, who passed away in 2016. Together, we had one son, two grandchildren, and two greatgrandchildren. I've been retired for twenty-five years from my job at Robins Air Force Base. I love the Lord with all my heart and pray that I project Him in all I do. I also love sparkly things and giving hugs.
I've been honored to be the pianist here at Crossroads since 1986. My hope for Crossroads is that we hear from God daily and continue to follow his guidance. For fun, I like being with others to share our ups and downs. My greatest blessing from God is my husband, Walter.
