A Little About Pastor Joshua: 

If I had to eat from one restaurant for the rest of my life, it would probably be Chick-fil-A. One of the things I love about being a pastor is that I get to spend time meeting with people (at Chick-fil-A) and talking with them about life!
 
“If my house was on fire and all the people were out, the first thing I would grab is a painting of my wife Monica, which took me over 200 hours to paint. We’ve been married 12 years and have 4 kids.”
 
“If I could talk about anything for one hour with no preparation, it would be about the history and philosophy of loose leaf tea. I’m a certified tea guru. But ever since my third child was born, I began drinking coffee.

Darryl Weaver

Darryl Weaver was licensed in 2018 as Community Outreach Pastor after 14 years of ministering in the Sunnyside Community. The Lord laid the vision of TATH (Tuesday At The House) on Darryl’s heart in the spring of 2004. Each Tuesday, Darryl and his wife, Janice, lead a community gathering in the church fellowship hall beginning at 6:15 pm. There is always food, fellowship, and a safe place to explore friendship with each other and to experience God’s love in new ways. All are welcome.

Darryl and Janice have two adult sons and two wonderful daughters-in-law. Darryl enjoys his family, spending time outdoors, mechanics, BBQ and smoking (meat that is). He finds food is a common ground that brings persons together that may not normally come together. Many great personal interactions have happened around a meal. 

Darryl believes we are called to love God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves (Mark 12:30-31). By sharing God’s love through your actions and words is a powerful and meaningful way for persons we encounter each day to experience God in our world.
