Team is always defined by the task we are trying to accomplish, so our staff team is defined by our Mission and Vision.  

Our staff core values are: 1) servant-hearted; 2) positive attitude; and 3) being flexible.

    In exchange for getting on the honor roll in 6th grade, Ryan asked his mom for a drum set. She must have forgotten the specifics, because at the end of the year when Ryan earned straight A's, she brought home a guitar! Though he was thoroughly disappointed, he grew to love the instrument and here we are--over two decades later and Ryan is still obsessed with guitar playing! You made the right call, Ma!
