About Our Pastor
Justin is from Birmingham, AL and attended the University of Alabama for undergrad and Luther Rice Seminary for a Master’s in Christian Leadership. Justin has an undeniable passion for serving others and sharing the truth of Jesus with everyone he meets. He loves being in the mountains and a good round of disc golf. Before church-planting, he spent 12 years serving in vocational ministry as a worship pastor.
In 2015 he married Lacy, a biblical counselor who loves hosting people in their home. As a new mom, Lacy is passionate about connecting with other moms in the community.
After their wedding Justin took Lacy on their honeymoon to Denver and they both fell in love with the city and its people. Neither one of them could shake the call to serve the people of Denver, and in 2020 they finally moved to the city to plant The Local Church in Arvada. Their prayer is that God would use them to be light and Christ’s love to the people of the Olde Town Arvada area and to everyone they meet throughout their lives.
