A native Illinoisan, Justin and his family now call Bossier Parish home. We have no idea how he ended up in the south, but we are sure glad he did! Known as Papa Smurf to the children at RVC, Justin oversees our booming children’s ministry and Servant Evangelism teams.
Justin leads his team with the goal that every child K-5th grade knows that they are special, that God loves them, and that He has a plan for their life. Never afraid to be fun or silly, Justin approaches children on their terms while never compromising the message of the Gospel. Adventureland is a pretty special place to be on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights!
Justin and his wife Barb have 2 terrific teens who serve the Lord alongside their parents. If organization and planning appeal to you, Justin is your guy. He keeps the rest of us on our toes (and sometimes rolling our eyes).
