OUR Leadership

Pastors & Staff

Alex Phelan

Worship Pastor

I’ve loved music my whole life, but when God got a hold of my heart he gave me a clear direction on how to use that passion for His glory. Jeremiah 20:9 “If I say, I will not mention Him, or speak any more in His name, there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.” This verse has stayed with me over the years and it is my desire to show others how great our God is and the things He has done as we worship together.
