WHO WE ARE
Meet Our Leadership Team
Born in Milton, FL, I have lived in California, the Washington DC area, and North Carolina before making Gulf Breeze home. I love movies, playing guitar, college football, and hanging out with friends. Words that excite me? Passion, Authenticity, Relevance, Creativity, Culture.
Jeff & Pam McKinney
Directors of Missions
Jeff & Pam love to spend time on the mission field.
Jeff- specifically with building projects and they loves to invest in other people's lives. He's live in the Gulf Breeze area his whole life.
Pam- grew up in a wonderful home where I learned that God had two main purposes for my life: To know Him and to make Him known. I have spent most of my life pursuing those two things and helping others to realize God’s plan for their life. This carries through in my passion for missions and small groups. I love my job! What makes me laugh? People running into glass doors. You can't beat that for entertainment.
