Our Team

Chris and Emeric

Our Lead Pastors Chris and Emeric are both from the East Coast and love living in warm places. They and their four kids do their best to follow Jesus and have a relationship with God through Him. They hope to reflect Him and the undeserved love He’s lavished on their family. They moved to South Carolina in response to His voice, and they are working to respond to the needs around Lake Murray in Lexington and Irmo.

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 four kids and two dogs, but when she has free time she likes baking, creating things, and hanging with friends and family. She loves the outdoors and enjoys exercising. She has graduated from ministry school, loves to worship God, and has a heart for women.

Jonathan and Jessie

Jonathan and Jessie are originally from New York City and Virginia Beach, respectively. They have been married for seven years and moved to Columbia in 2015 after feeling a call from the Lord. They have two children: Sofía and Elisha. Jonathan works in IT, and Jessie is a stay at home parent and a tutor. They are passionate about sharing the love of Christ in tangible ways and bringing more honesty and openness to the church experience.
