I grew up in Owensboro, Kentucky as an average kid on an average street in an average town.
Success, respect, and fun were my goals for college, but I didn’t count on the “infinite abyss” in my soul beginning to haunt me. Jesus pressed into that confusion and guilt with clarity and love. “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
I served for 12 years with Cru at UNC-Chapel Hill, earned an M.Div from Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia), pastored at The Church of the Good Shepherd in Durham, NC, and then planted Christ Community Church in 2005 with my long-time friend Greg Norfleet.
I absolutely adore my wife Ruby Bea, and think my four kids (Walt, Jay, John Martin and Layson) are downright amazing.
Before discovering an interest in administrative work, some of Amanda's former titles have included: art teacher (middle and alternative high schools), transcriptionist, injection molding press operator, leader for Ukrainian orphanage camp volunteer teams, and contract worker in various departments for World Relief Durham. Campbell and NCCU are her alma maters. She has what she considers a super power (congenital anosmia - look it up!) and enjoys just about everything… being in the sun or on a boat, rollerblading, kayaking, dessert, playing various musical instruments, reading scripture, and finding meaningful ways to serve others because of what Jesus has done for her. Amanda lives in Durham with Shark, her funny Boston Terrier.

In this day and age, there are about a thousand technological and computer-related questions a minute that crop up between sending emails, maintaining a website, and otherwise running a successful twenty-first century church. From distributing the Connection, managing bulletin announcements, and orchestrating the complicated dials, bells, and whistles of the sound equipment, Gary fields a huge array of tasks for CCC. Without Gary, the whole engine would grind to a halt.
