Lead Pastor

Originally from Colorado, Pastor Sean moved to Virginia in 2005 to serve at New Life in Christ Church where he currently serves as Lead Pastor. Sean came to faith in Jesus Christ during his college years through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. When he was converted to Jesus Christ, he found purpose for his life, the source of joy, and the pattern for love.

His passion is to help others find purpose, joy, and love through becoming a disciple of Jesus. Whether it is in Fredericksburg or around the world, his prayer is to see a gospel movement grow where Jesus’ message will spread.

He graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, from New Geneva Theological Seminary in Colorado Springs, CO with a Master of Divinity, and is currently working on a Doctor of Ministry from Westminster Theological Seminary.

Prior to coming to New Life in Christ he served with Campus Crusade for Christ in overseas missions and worked a number of years as an engineer with a large government contractor.

Sean married way out of his league when he and his wife Julie took their vows in 1998, and together they have five children: Liam, Grace, Madeleine, Jonathan, and Benjamin. Sean is a passionate follower of any sport his children are in, enjoys reading, camping and hiking and other outdoor activities, exercise, and visiting our nation’s national parks and historic sites.
