About This Site

What is the purpose of this thing anyway?

The purpose of this site is to help me keep you informed with what is going on in your area of ministry. With the rate at which our church is growing and, likewise, as our ministry teams continue to grow, it becomes increasingly difficult for me to maintain personal communication with all my leaders in different areas (people like yourself). 

Hopefully, this site will help you hear from me personally more often than just once a quarter at a quarterly team meeting. At Journey, we value you as a leader, and our desire is to help facilitate you in your ministry as much as we possibly can. Thanks for all you do! You are appreciated.

About Smooth

One-Line Bio

Smooth is a follower of Jesus and a Pastor here at Journey. He leads and/or oversees many of the different ministries here at Journey, probably including the ministry of which you are a part, which is probably why you are here hearing this “Word from Smooth…”


Smooth and Kelly came to Journey in February of 2007. They had been looking for a church family that they could believe in and invest their lives in, and realized they had finally found it when they found Journey. Needless to say they were excited to begin a new level of involvement as Smooth joined the pastoral staff in November of 2007.
Smooth has some degrees you probably don’t care about, and hopes to one day hold a Ph.D. in Christian Ethics (which you probably also don’t care about). Smooth and Kelly have three girls, Cana, Kayil, and Karis and consider raising a genuine Jesus-loving family their top calling in life.


Following Jesus, theology, philosophy, ethics, church history, studying Scripture, my family, being a great husband and dad, Jeeps, music, and probably a lot of other things I can’t think of right now.
