A Message from our Leader

I believe we are in a very rare and God-ordained moment as a church. It seems over and over that God’s hand is being revealed in leading us to the former School for the Deaf. With all my heart I want to thank you for your continued prayers, your insightful wisdom, and your insane courage to take this incredible next step. As we’ve been looking to the Lord for His revelation of who we are and want to be, the leadership has come together united, believing that the below captures our vision and mission as His church.

Celebrate exists to be a family of:

  • Open Doors (where everyone is welcome)
  • Open Hands (to give freely and sacrificially)
  • Open Hearts (that love unconditionally)

We are committed:

  • To come alongside the children of Terry Redlin Elementary and help them reach their dreams
  • To help those who have been incarcerated to find real freedom
  • To serve single moms and help them find healing and hope to living the victorious life
  • To befriend and value those who are mentally and physically disabled
  • To plant healthy. Kingdom-minded churches
  • To grow our children and empower our youth to reach their God-given potential
  • To gift orphans with the opportunity to be a part of a forever family

(Matthew 25:33-40: Philippians 2:3-4: Galatians 6:2, 9-10: James 1:27: 1 John 3:16-18: Ezekiel 16:49: Proverbs 19: 17: Proverbs 14:31: Proverbs 28:27:John 13:34-35: Luke 6:38:Jeremiah 22: 16-17)

I love being your pastor. I love doing this journey with you. To God be the glory.

As a kid, I was basically forced to go to church. It’s not to say that I didn’t believe in God; I did, but I thought of Him as like a wish-granter. I started reading the New Testament and going to church while in Marine Corps Boot Camp, just to help me focus and get me through, but I still didn’t feel that connection. In May of 2006, I got married. It was a good marriage that was rocky at times. In that same year, I went outside the marriage. We eventually got divorced in 2009 but stayed living together, trying to make it work. Read more…


My husband brought me to Celebrate for the first time in 2012. We came but I was not a true believer; I just came because everyone was nice. I knew God was real but I had doubts about Jesus being His son, and other aspects of Christianity. I was attending Celebrate Recovery, which reinforced what we learned about on the weekends, and started to grow. But then, in 2014, two loved ones passed away and I began turning to alcohol and meth. This lead to poor choices including DUIs. I turned away from church. Our family’s life became a disaster. We lost our jobs. We lost our home. We lost our children. We lost each other.  Read more…
