Our staff team is passionate about helping you go deeper in your relationship with God. They come from lots of different backgrounds but are committed to our common purpose: to help people connect with God, grow in their faith, and be released into their gifts.
MATT IS OUR INTERIM PASTOR. He grew up in London in a non-religious household and didn’t come to faith until the age of 32. Finding faith in Jesus transformed his life, and after working as a video producer for some years, he and his wife Kim joined Founding Pastor Al Hardy and his wife Niki to help establish CityChurch Charlotte. Over a decade of ministry later, besides watching Arsenal soccer club, following Formula 1 racing and trying to keep up with his 3 daughters, Matt still sees following Jesus as the greatest adventure in life.
LYNSEY IS OUR WORSHIP PASTOR. Lynsey joined us from our sister church, St. Mary’s London, where she was one of the worship leaders. During her time in London, Lynsey grew in her awareness of and passion for the work of the Holy Spirit. Her desire is to see the church fully encounter Jesus as we meet him through corporate worship.
BRENDA IS OUR PASTOR of Children and Family Ministries and Communications Lead. She is passionate about healthy families and partnering with parents to show kids the extraordinary love Jesus has for them. She left her career in journalism to stay home with her three children, but later felt God calling her to a vocation working with children and students. When she was ask to lead the Communications Team, she happily dusted off and put to use her journalism degree.
MARISSA IS OUR ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT. Here’s what she has to say: Hiiiiiii, I am Marissa Adams, married to Jack Adams. I was born and raised in Arizona. I made the transition to be in North Carolina because I fell in love with this beautiful state ever since I visited frequently here as a child. My family lives here, and I also wanted to be closer to them. I have a knack for assisting people on my team, taking tasks to ease their workload, and getting creative. I have a passion for all things dance because it makes me feel at ease, forget all of my problems, and lose myself in the music, as it is healing. I hope to make many more connections and get to know everyone more.
CORY IS OUR STUDENT LEADER and has been a part of the CityChurch community for the past three years. His passion for student ministry began as a result of his own experience as a student attending youth ministry.
