Since my wife, Heidi, and I moved here the first time 20 years ago for school, New England got into us and we couldn’t shake it. Sure, we love the Pats and Sox, but it’s more than that. We love the culture, landscape, and the mission of God in this region. Coming back in 2015 to lead CenterPoint was like coming home for us! Hiking, sitting near the ocean, reading, fun movies with my family, and cards with great friends are some of the things that make my life feel full and rich. And I love being a part of what God is doing in CenterPoint Church and throughout New England!
As the Lead Pastor, I love that I get to work with the Ministry Leadership Team and Elders to provide overall leadership for CenterPoint. I’m also involved in one-on-one counseling, prayer ministry, connections in the community and communicating the truth of Christ revealed in the Bible on weekends.

Office & Services Manager
Growing up in New Hampshire, I have found a deep love for the Mountains. Whether I’m hiking, camping, snow shoeing or driving through , I get amazed by every perfect detail of God’s handiwork through His creation. I have lived in Concord with my family for over 17 years. In the past I have contributed to the start up and operation of several profitable businesses and truly enjoy working with people. I love serving along side our Lead Pastor as his assistant and leading the Connection team. I know now that this isn’t a typical job, this is a calling.
I love seeing God move through-out New England, the city of Concord and right here at CenterPoint and I am so thankful to be a part of it.

CP Students Director
I am a New Hampshire native and while I may not be the biggest fan of winter, I absolutely love New England! I love both the beauty and the quirkiness of New England. I also love to travel, drink lots of coffee, watch movies with my family, and snuggle my adorable boxer, Remus. Not only have I always lived in NH, I have called CenterPoint my church home, my entire life as well. As I look back, two thing I consider being most influential in my growing up years would have to be being part of a youth group and serving. When I graduated high school in 2005, I started volunteering with our students and never stopped. If you ask my brothers, they say I love it because I act more like on of the students than an adult, but really I love being able to help inspire, equip, and release students to live and share a life-changing relationship with Jesus. I joined staff in 2014 and love being a part of what God is doing in and through CenterPoint.
As the Director of CP Students, I love that I get to build relationships with the students and families of CenterPoint and beyond. I get to work alongside an amazing team of volunteers. I get to help students know Jesus better, play wacky games, plan events, and have a ton of fun doing so. I’ve also started connecting with some of our local schools and furthering relationships with our students, families, and community.

Centerpoint has been my home now for 34 years. Visually seeing the change and transition of the Church has been amazing. But now to be a part of this team and play my own role in the movement of God through Centerpoint, makes it feel like family.
I spent 13 years working for and with many general contractors across the greater Concord area. Four of those years were also spent running a small construction company of my own. In late 2014 I stepped into my current role of Facilities Manager here at C.P. Commercial construction and building maintenance took some getting used to after being in the residential world for so long. But that is something I am continually learning. A 200 year old building will always keep you on your toes!
Outside of the work schedule I spend most of my down time in the woods or on the lake. From hunting to fishing and hiking, I just love being in the outdoors and in his creation. You may find me on a basketball court somewhere, you may find me volunteering and helping others in need. But whether it’s fixing toilets, creating entirely new spaces or sitting in the woods, God has placed me exactly where I am! And that is a gift that I never take for granted.

Finance & Data Manager
After a diverse 35+ year career in the business world of start ups and Fortune 500 companies I stepped away to take on the role of Director of Operations at CenterPoint. Even though many skills were transferable to my new role and I could contribute to the vision of CP in many ways by directing the ongoing operations of the church, I also I found myself engaging in ministries that brought out new opportunities to learn how to truly live and share a relationship with Jesus. The love of teaching and involvement in the men’s activities has allowed me to understand more about following Christ with a servant’s heart. My wife Christina and I enjoy our time with five grown children and five grandchildren and I can continue my love of baseball by being player coach on the CP softball team.

CP Kids Director
Moving to NH as a very young child, CenterPoint Church quickly became home for my family. I knew pretty early on that my future would include working with children and families. Little did I know that while this would be part of my future, it would not be as I had envisioned.
After a few short years of teaching elementary school, my husband and I would welcome three boys into our family, and I would join the Ministry Leadership Team at CenterPoint where my love for families originally began.
I love being a part of a church that believes in the importance of family, in all of it’s different shapes, as ground zero for disciple making. As the CP Kids director, I have a front row seat into the lives of families as they journey together; laughing, shedding tears, but not without BIG celebrations along the way! Then there are kids…nothing will keep you on your toes more than a room full kids! Still, there isn’t any thing that is more exciting than seeing God at work through the simplicity of a child.

CenterPoint Church has been a huge part of my life for over 17 years. I had always been a small town, seacoast girl growing up. Never would I have thought that Concord, NH would be in God’s plan for me moving forward! I love it here! The Main Street attractions, my homey apartment up the street, being an avid New England Patriots fan, and most of all spending time making memories with my two daughters. I am truly blessed!
In everything that I do, being a part of God’s plan has always been consistent and close to my heart. Over the years at CenterPoint, I developed a passion for volunteering with the Jr. & Sr. High Youth Ministries, the Saturday morning Food Pantry with my youngest daughter, Sunday morning Child Care Groups, CP Kids Check-In, and other various events that arose looking for a helping hand.
As CenterPoint’s Receptionist, I see God at work continuously. Through assisting the church staff, having warm conversations with people on the phone, and interacting with individuals who walk through CenterPoint’s doors. I love being part of CenterPoint’s family, New England’s family…God’s family!
Financial and Accounting Assistant
New England is my home, God’s creation of mountains, rivers, lakes, ocean, and so much more. Growing up on a farm I learned a lot, but one thing that stands out is different seasons with varying needs, like planting in the spring and harvesting in the fall. I have also enjoyed watching CenterPoint change to meet needs in our community, always showing the light Jesus brings for each of us.
I have been involved with para-church groups for over 40 years and am blessed to be able to work from my home as part of the CenterPoint staff. Recording the details of our financial matters and helping to keep our records in order is incredibly fulfilling. With 4 children and 10 grandchildren, family is also a large part of Larry and my life as well as my being involved with Celebrate Recovery.
Director of Help and Healing Ministries
After spending 5 years in the corporate world and another 15 years in higher education, I was honored to accept a position at CenterPoint. My passion and education is in the field of human services and I am blessed to be able to spend my days engaging and advocating for my church family and local community. Working with CenterPoint’s Help and Healing ministries, I have personally seen Jesus embrace the broken and restore lives. I strongly believe in the power of prayer and the role Christian community plays in health and healing.
