Jerome Taylor, Lead Pastor 


Who Am I?:

 "I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, a husband to Melinda, a father of 4, a pastor to many, and a student of the Scriptures.  

In Short?  …I consider myself to be…a thinker of the analytical and appreciator of the artistic abstract.  I am a seeker of truth, a believer with faith, and a receiver of grace.  I am a nerd, a tech junkie, a book hound, a music lover, a history buff, a trivia geek, an avid reader, & vocabulary crasher.  I enjoy being a football watcher, a baseball bum, a social network commentator, a random blogger, & unique teacher"

(Plus, I'm a guy that makes grammatical errors with really long run on sentences and/or fragments that seem to go on forever and ever.)
