Meet pastor Ashley!

MY ROLE AT CHURCH ON THE HILL

As a worship leader, I simply want to help our people forget about the mountains they are facing, and meet with the living God that can move them.  Our prayer is that the Sunday experience translates to a life of worship outside the church walls.  I also get to lead and train an unbelievably gifted team of worship leaders, musicians, vocalists, and techs for the sole purpose of glorifying the Father, introducing others to His son, Jesus through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.

 

MY FAMILY

My amazing wife Amber has been putting up with me for over 20 years!  She is the strongest woman I know and is the greatest wife, mom, and partner in ministry any man could ever ask for.  We have been blessed with two great kids, Aiden and Aubrey, 11-year-old twins!

 

MY BACKGROUND

I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida to a Christian family. Though I came to know the Lord in my teen years, I never had any desire to go “into” ministry.  I was studying to be an engineer when I received my call into ministry.  I answered the call in 1998 and have been in full-time service since 2001. I am an Ordained Elder in the Church of the Nazarene.  I have had the privilege to serve the Lord in churches in Florida, California, and since July of 2008, here at Church on the Hill.

 

MY DREAM VACATION WOULD BE

Amber and I spending time in the Southern Caribbean – St. Thomas sounds good.
