Our Lead Pastors Chris and Emeric Martinez are both from the East Coast but moved to South Carolina in response to God’s voice in 2015. They and their five children do their best to follow Jesus and have a relationship with God through Him. They hope to reflect Jesus and the undeserved love that He’s lavished on their family. They are currently working to respond to the needs around Lake Murray in Lexington and Irmo. Their hope is to have a church where people can fall in love with Jesus, find a family, live in freedom, and be active in their God-given purpose.
Chris is a bivocational pastor with graduate degrees in education and religion. He likes to workout, read, and play with his kids. He writes blogs, helps people find Jesus, and tries to stay out of trouble.
Emeric has her hands full with their five children, but when she has free time she likes creating things, and spending time with friends and family. She loves the outdoors and also enjoys exercising. She has graduated from ministry school, loves to worship God, and has a heart for women.
