"Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him."
“In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit, we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives, even as we watch for God’s new heaven and new earth praying, ‘Come, Lord Jesus.’” —From “A Brief Statement of Faith”
Meet our Team
The tender age of 17 was when I first began to wrestle with God’s call to ministry. It was that call that led me to college at Texas Christian University, seminary (Austin Presbyterian), and to pastorates in Texas and the North Carolina coast. In 2000, God called us to the beautiful forest we call Brevard, and it is my honor to serve as Pastor here. I enjoy hiking, and spending time with my wife, Debbie, and our daughters, Hannah and Hollis, and our dog, Max.
Hi I’m Denise Byrd. I am from Miami, and grew up in Hollywood, Florida. I got out of crowded South Florida in 1981 and moved to Brevard. I serve as the office manager. God is amazing calling me to this ministry in 1991 and He is truly showing me that it’s not just a “job” but a ministry. My favorite hobby and therapy is Pottery, and I am blessed to have a home studio with a kiln.
Hi, my name is Amanda Allison. I was born and raised here in Transylvania County. I am married to my wonderful husband; Mitch Allison and we have two beautiful children. I enjoy spending time with my family, going camping and making people smile. Since a young age I have been passionate about Early Childhood. My children attended this same Preschool when they were younger and almost 6 years ago, I was called to teach here. I am so grateful to now be the Director. I look forward to leading our faith-based Preschool to new and brighter adventures.
