We are so happy to welcome Kris and Rachel as the new GPC Youth Pastors. Our youth pastor Mike D’ambra served at GPC for 15 years and discipled these two outstanding people.
We will have more information about Kris and Rachel soon. They just took possession of their first home this month as well.
What I Do For GPC: Preach the Gospel, Live the example, Love the hurting. My goal is to have the youth, by the time they are graduating High School, have a solid foundation for Christ where no matter what life throws at them they are strongly rooted in the Word of God. We will help disciple them to become leaders for their generation. I will encourage them to pray and prophecy for each other.
What I Do For Fun: I like to hang out at home play some video games or board games with other people, watch a show or movie with others. I enjoy spending time with people and I think that’s fun. Even if all we do is sit in the same room and stare at an electronic device for hours on end. I also like Football, Soccer, Tennis, Basketball, Hiking, Baseball/Softball, Theatre, and Poker.
What Makes Me Laugh: The next question.
What Makes Me Cry: The amount of questions on this list 😉
In A Previous Life (before GPC): I was the former chess champion of Adobe Bluffs Elementary school.
Best Advice I Ever Received: Just keep swimming, thank you Dory.
Things I Care About: I care about my family, friends, youth, co-workers, and most everyone. I care about the people who are left out and don’t feel like they belong or feel like they have a place.
Family Matters: That is true, family does matter. A lot. My wife Rachel and I have a great family and are blessed by their love and support. We value them highly.
My Secret Talent: Nice Try, I can’t tell my secret talent. That’s a secret! I don’t even know it.
My Favorite Cartoon Character and Why: SpongeBob SquarePants makes me laugh, and I love to laugh.
