Nancy and her husband, Jim, began DSPC in August 2005 and have loved just about every minute since then making new friends and growing closer to Christ together. Nancy and Jim have a son and a daughter: James, married to Robbin and Elizabeth, married to Sean. They have five awesome grandkids who Nancy loves hanging out with as much as possible. Another passion is riding horses—she even used to do some barrel racing back in the day! She can often be found laughing, walking, traveling and eating with friends. She always has a few good books going. Contact Nancy at email@example.com
Mitch has been part of the DSPC community since May 2009. He has a passion for worship, youth and mission. Seeing the people of God from the very youngest to the oldest come together to love, serve, and glorify God as one body is what gets him motivated to give his whole heart to serving God as Pastor at DSPC. When he’s not singing, preaching, or serving, he’s watching Netflix, listening to a wide variety of musical tastes and relaxing with his friends and family. He and his wife Taylor have two kids, David and Charlotte, who can often be found on their Daddy’s hip! Contact Mitch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dee has been part of the DSPC family since 2011, managing the church office, human resources and finances. Her favorite part of any day is greeting everyone who calls or comes in our doors. She is married to the love of her life, Doug, and between them have 4 grown kids, embracing the adage “blended can be beautiful!” Dee and Doug serve in many areas at DSPC, not because they feel obligated, but because they know how Christ through the local church finally found and saved them and their family. Dee’s passion is music “lyrics are everything!” and blesses the DSPC community by singing in the 9:30 worship service. Contact Dee at email@example.com
Family Ministries Pastor
Amy joined the DSPC staff in 2016. She serves as Director of Family Ministries and works to implement a cradle-to-college strategy that meets kids where they are in life and faith. Believing every phase of a kids' life reminds us they're fearfully and wonderfully made, she's driven to engage kids not just to know the story of God, but to fall in love with the God of the story. She's previously served other churches in Children's Ministry and Church Marketing and Communications as well as being a full time mom for over a decade. She and her husband Shayne keep busy raising their three school age sons, Travis, Cole and Grant. She believes in the power of families, the impact of the local church and the goodness of Sonic Happy Hour. Contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org
Zeeke joined the DSPC staff as Youth Director in October of 2016. Zeeke’s ministry path was shaped during his time as a camper at Sky Ranch, where one of his counselors told Zeeke that the reason he came back to camp each summer was to “see his face.” Having a mentor invest in him in that way, Zeeke felt a different type of love and felt called to extend that to the next generation. Thus, his passion for student ministry and his desire to bring heaven to earth was born. Apart from ministry, you can catch Zeeke coaching sports, on the court himself, playing music, sharing a laugh and going on adventures. Contact Zeeke at email@example.com
Young Adults Pastor
Sydney came on DSPC staff as Young Adults pastor in October 2017. After graduating with a music business degree from Florida State in 2013, she spent four years at Hillsong College in Sydney, Australia, learning about ministry and leadership amongst an incredible community of world changers. If there's anything she's learned from study and travel, it's that God is beautifully reflected in the heart of every person He has made--she finds great joy in coming alongside others on the journey of discovering their identity and purpose in His Kingdom. Sydney is an unashamed "creative type", with passions ranging from the heart warming to the slightly bizarre. If you don't find her sharing a good cup of coffee and a laugh with a few friends, there's a good chance she might be strolling a new city spot she's never been to, at home dancing in her living room to an 80s playlist, or watching Star Wars. With her cat. Contact Sydney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
