Leading Pastor

Originally from Colorado, Pastor Sean moved to Virginia in 2005 to serve at New Life in Christ Church where he currently serves as Associate Pastor of Congregational Life. Sean came to faith in Jesus Christ during his college years through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.

His great passion is to see people grow in joy through faith in Jesus Christ as they go deeper with him, learning to trust him, walk with him, and enjoy the fruit of obedience to his commands – and then to make that joy known to the world.

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 four children: Liam, Grace, Madeleine, and Jonathan. Sean enjoys camping and hiking and other outdoor activities, playing sports, coaching little league, and visiting our nation’s national parks and historic sites.
