MEET OUR PASTORS
JF & ASHLEY WILKERSON
Born and raised on opposite ends of the country (JF in Tacoma, Wa and Ashley in Lincolnton, Ga) their paths crossed in Tennessee during their college days and years later they were married. Jon-Fulton (JF) left a music career in Nashville and Ashley left her adjunct professor position at Vanderbilt to pursue ministry with his family in Miami. They went on to associate pastor for a few years in the middle of Hollywood/Los Angeles and finally returned home to work in the heart of the 253 where they raise their two amazing children Israel and Fulton. Ashley is also a member of the World Vision Speakers Bureau, and can be booked on behalf of World Vision.
“To reach people with the life-giving message of Jesus that they might become fully devoted followers of Christ.”
Our statement of purpose is based on two teachings of Jesus:
MATTHEW 22:36-40 NIV, MARK 16:15-17, 20 NIV
You can learn more about our purpose as a church and how your gifts and calling fit into that purpose by attending Growth Track.
OUR SEVEN CORE VALUES
JESUS IS OUR MESSAGE
We are most committed to the preaching of Jesus. Our message is everything. We are Jesus people, not religious people. Methods will come and go, yet our message will remain the same.
PEOPLE ARE OUR HEART
Our heart is for ALL people. All people are loved by Jesus. We make no apologies for being specifically focused on reaching the lost. We desire to bring the broken home at all costs. We believe that our light is best seen in the night.
GENEROSITY IS OUR PRIVILEGE
Generosity is about giving more than what is required. We see generosity as a privilege. We are generous with our time, talents and treasure. We go first in our giving. God has given richly towards us, it is our honor to give back to Him.
EXCELLENCE IS OUR SPIRIT
We are always going to do the best with what we have. We are on time, engaged and prepared. We do not do things half way. If we are going to do it, we are going to do it to the best of our ability.
SERVANT LEADERSHIP IS OUR IDENTITY
If you are too big to serve, you are too small to lead. Every leader is a servant first. From the parking lot to the pulpit, everyone serves. If you ain’t helping, you ain’t helping!
HONOR IS OUR CALLING
We are vocal with our honor. We submit to leadership and are thankful for spiritual authority. We choose joyfully to submit to those God has placed over us. We honor and care for those God has placed under us.
PASSION IS OUR PURSUIT
Everything we do, we do it with passion. From our worship to our service, we do it with Holy Ghost energy. Passion drives us. Passion for Jesus. Passion for people. Passion for His church.
We seek to continually live these values out by helping
1) Know God
2) Grow in Freedom
3) Discover Purpose
4) Make a Difference
