PASTOR WAYNE CHISHOLM
WORSHIP LEADER
 
Wayne joined our staff in 2004. He has a love for music, but a passion for worship. Worship is not the congregation listening to a band on a platform, it is the whole church engaging in the adoration of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Wayne spent some time at Southeastern College in Lakeland, Florida, and finished his studies through the Potomac School Of Ministry. 

Wayne and his wife, Rebecca, have been married since 2001, and have three beautiful children.

DEBBIE ALT
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT
 
To label Debbie as just a church secretary would be selling her way short. Debbie does bring her experience as a secretary into the mix, but she also oversees many of the day to day things that no one sees. All on staff agree that we couldn’t do what we do without her.
