Meet Our Leaders

Sean & Andrea Davis

Lead Pastors

Sean  is a native New Yorker, born and raised on Long Island. While Sean had powerful encounters with God as a child, his walk with the Lord began in high school. Soon-after, he attended Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, where he received an undergraduate degree in Theology, a Master of Arts in Teaching, and a minor in Music. During his time at Lee, he was heavily involved as a musician, vocalist, and chaplain in the ministry of Campus Choir. It was here that he met and first ministered with his future wife Andrea.

Born and raised in Kentucky, Andrea felt the call of God on her life at a young age and became very involved in music ministry and youth group at her local church. Following this call she eventually attended Lee University, where she would study Christian Ministries with an emphasis in Pastoring, Theology, Christian Leadership and Bible, as well as minor in Music. While attending Lee she was a vocalist with Campus Choir, which shaped her understanding of worship and ignited a desire to see lives changed in the presence of the Lord.  Andrea also entered into an intensive mentorship group called Daughters of Zion, led by Pastor Deven Wallace of Redemption to the Nations Church in Chattanooga, TN.  It was through this ministry the Lord confirmed his calling on her life and stirred a passion in her to help equip the body of Christ do the work of the Kingdom with power and purpose through mentorship and discipleship.

Sean and Andrea are passionate about cultivating a heart for worship in the body of Christ and pursuing his presence both in song and in lifestyle; the ultimate form of worship. Their call to pastoral ministry is reflected in their longing to raise up a people who are consumed with a passionate love for God, live continually in life-changing relationship with him, and live out his purpose for their lives both in their calling and in righteous character that won't burn bright one moment and fizzle out the next. They desire to see the presence and power of God move mightily within the Church, producing authentic followers of Jesus Christ.

Claude Leak


From Elder Claude: 

"I find it an honor and a privilege to have been asked to be an Elder.  It is not a ministry that I take lightly.  In this ministry, most importantly we serve our Lord, but we also serve the Pastor and congregation.  We strive to honor God with all he has blessed us with and pray that our lives bring Him glory and praise.  As Joshua said, to the Israelites “But, as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15b)
