Clint’s mission is to lead the staff teams. He keeps the church focused on its mission to worship God passionately, grow in Christ deeply, and engage the world intentionally.
I grew up in a Christian home where we attended church each week. So I was very familiar with the idea of God and that He wanted me to surrender control of my life to Him.
For a variety of reasons including selfishness, fear and wanting to do life my way, I put off becoming a Christian for a long time. Eventually I grew tired of running from God. I surrendered control of my life to Christ at the age of 16 and began to let Him lead me.
Since then life hasn’t been perfect and I haven’t been perfect. By God’s grace, He has been steadily growing me through the ups and downs of life into the person He wants me to become.
The longer I walk with him and the better I get to know him the more convinced I am that there is no better way to live life than to follow Christ each day.
My Journey to Real Life:
I attended Real Life as a member for 3 years before sensing God’s direction to serve him in the role of a pastor. So, I went back to school.
After graduation I applied at several places, but it became clear I was already in the right place! Since that’s the door that God opened that’s the one we walked through. I began to serve as Associate Pastor in 1998.
I am blessed to have Lisa as my wife and 5 beautiful kids Katie, Will, Sara, Ethan and Emily. I am extremely rich in the things that matter: faith and family.
My passion is to help people understand that doing life God’s way is far more rewarding, enjoyable and satisfying than doing life their own way.
