Our Leadership Team

  •                                                             Matt Morrison- Associate and Interim Pastor   

    Matt was born and raised in eastern North Carolina, but you could never tell by his accent, or love of biscuits and BBQ. After graduating from Western Carolina University, Matt spent several years as a middle school teacher. After teaching middle school Matt received his MDiv from Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC.  If anything concerns sports, hunting and fishing, or Ron Swanson, be prepared to talk for a while! Matt and his wife Abby have a little boy named Titus who you will often hear being loud or laughing at church! 

  •   Joseph Kenyon - Music Director 

    Joseph was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and moved to Gainesville for school. Having finished his Associate of Arts at Santa Fe College, Joseph is now pursuing a Bachelor of Computer Science from the University of Florida. Being the youngest of six kids, Joseph is predictably loud and obnoxious. He loves participatory corporate worship and is passionate about music that engages multiple generations. He also loves songwriting, pretending to be good at sports, and playing games of all kinds. Go Santa Fe Saints!
