I grew up in Western Michigan, and I felt a distinct call to ministry at the age of 12. This led me to Baptist Bible College, where I graduated in 1982. I have served at EABC since 1989. The guiding principles of my life are to love God, love people, and equip the saints to do the work of the ministry. I find great joy in sharing the timeless principles of God’s Word and encouraging others to follow God’s plan for their lives. I have been married to Barb since 1981, and we have five adult children and nine grandchildren.
I was born in 1989 and grew up in a Christian home, where I accepted Christ as my Savior in May of 1996. I have worked with youth groups, Christian summer camps, and local church ministries. I joined EABC as an intern working with the youth ministry in January of 2013 and was hired as Youth Pastor in January of 2014. I graduated from Clearwater Christian College in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Pastoral Studies. I married Erin in July of 2010 and we have two children, Ella and Connor.
Worship and Arts Director
I was born in Brewer Maine, but have found my home here in Auburn and at EABC for the past 24 years. I have been married to my wife Emily for 20 years now and have 3 great kids, Addison, Owen and Hayden. Music has always been my calling and I have had the privilege to lead worship here at East Auburn for 22+ years. I have a music education degree from Houghton College and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love every day and to be able to worship God through music!
I was born and raised in western KY and have been attending church as long as I can remember. I spent the majority of my years in pastoral ministry in South Alabama, where I fell in love with Alabama Football (Roll Tide!). I have been married to my beautiful wife, Karen (a Buckfield native) since 1997. We have 4 amazing sons that keep us busy...and grocery shopping. Our family loves exploring Maine and trying anything new. We have been part of East Auburn since 2018. We love teaching the young people here at the church and look forward to many years of service with our church family.
I am a Mainer through and through! I left the state for only 4 years to attend college. I have been a part of EABC staff for over 20 years. EABC had so many opportunities for short term missions and I took advantage of them all - Ecuador, Romania, and Nigeria. My love for missions is what introduced me to my husband! You never know what God is going to do on those trips! I am married to TJ, who I met on a mission trip to Nigeria in 2009. We have three daughters, Natasha, Aisha, and Maryam, whom I love a little bit more than coffee.
I was born and raised in Auburn, ME and received Christ as my Savior in August of 2014. I have been attending EABC ever since and became a member in 2016. I most recently worked at Tri County Mental Health as a Wellness and Recovery Coach until I decided to leave my position in order to homeschool my daughters full time. I joined the staff at EABC in November of 2018. I married my husband, Brent, at the cross at EABC in October of 2015. We have twin daughters, Sara and Emily.

I love what I do here at church! I am surrounded by creative individuals who love the Lord and desire to serve!

Having been involved in technology here at church in one way or another for the last decade or so, I take this new role as Tech Director very seriously! I grew up in this church and look forward to many more years of service here!
I have been attending EABC off and on since 1995 and made it my home in 2010. I joined the staff in January of 2012. I graduated from Husson College with a degree in accounting and obtained an MBA from Southern New Hampshire University. My wife, Nancy, and I have two adult children.
I started working for EABC in August of 2017. I have lived in Maine all my life and started to enjoy winters by cross country skiing. I also love to go fishing at the coast.
I've been working here at church for over 5 years.
