Pastor Jay grew up in Kansas and gave his life to Christ in April of 1997. He attended Missouri State University where he was involved in Chi Alpha Christian fellowship and received his Bachelors in Religious Studies. He met his wife Candace in church at Central Assembly of God in Springfield where she was attending Evangel University. After 3 years in youth ministry they felt called to Omaha to plant a church. So after much prayer and planning, they moved to Omaha in 2004 and with a small group of dedicated leaders, started New Creation in their home.
They have two children, Jackson and Haven and they love to watch Jayhawk Basketball and Husker football. Most of all, they love serving the Omaha community and New Creation Church!
