Juston is the Family and Student Pastor. His main focus is on helping students and families grow into disciples of Christ. However, this is Student Ministry, so if we can do all of that while having fun we’ve succeeded! Juston is married to his wife Amanda, who is way out of his league (but that is also a testimony to God giving us things that are way better than we deserve) and they have one daughter, Grace. Juston did his undergraduate work at SBU in Christian Ministry, and his Masters of Theological Studies at MBTS. Juston loves cooking and food (probably more than he should), movies, video games, paintball, and the Royals. Juston is the newest and the coolest of our staff.
