Elders – men who meet biblical standards – are responsible for guarding the purity of church doctrine, shepherding the flock, and overseeing the church.
The Lord grabbed Justin’s heart at a young age. Being the youngest of three sons to newly redeemed parents, intentional spiritual parenting and growth were at the forefront of his childhood. Shortly after moving from Pittsburgh, PA, Justin’s parents became involved in helping launch a new church in the Chicagoland area.
Justin is a graduate of Wheaton College and has been working in his family’s food manufacturing business for over seventeen years. Justin married Martha (Mattie) in 2007 and they have two beautiful girls, Violet and Rosalie.
Justin has a deep desire to know God through his Word. He has a burden for those who attend church but might not know the “redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of their trespasses, and the riches of his grace which he lavished upon us” (Ephesians 1:7-8).
