LEADERSHIP TEAM

Discovery Christian Community is led by pastors and elders, the governing board, our ministry teams, and various other leaders. Our governing board is elected each year by our membership at our Annual Meeting.

Our leadership is accountable to the Central Pacific District of the C&MA. The pastor and elders meet regularly together with the governing board and the ministry leaders in order to move forward in our vision to help people Discover Christ, Community, and Mission. We publish an updated list of our elders, governing board, and ministry leaders in the Sunday bulletin and this website.

Prior to joining Discovery, he spent the 2 years as the Spiritual Director of Seattle Christian School in SeaTac, WA. Despite being new to Utah, he has felt a strong calling from God to serve in Salt Lake City.
