Raised as a preacher’s kid, Seth cannot remember a time when ministry and people were not the most important part of his life. His passion is to teach and train others to fulfill the Great Commission. He believes all Christians have the amazing privilege to have God live inside of them. When we love each other as we should, we become the full expression of His love. There is nothing better than to see people reach their full potential and help them accomplish their God-given dreams.
Seth loves everything outdoors, from kayaking to fly-fishing. He and his wife, Theda (who is on staff as the Business/Office Manager), have one son who is married and has given them the beautiful gift of two grandchildren.
Seth and Theda work together and are passionate about being used by God to help provide a life-changing environment in the church that is focused on the simplicity of the gospel and the power of a personal relationship with a God who loves us.
