High School Pastor
Colton never expected to end up in Lakeland. Being raised near Seattle and having spent his three previous years in Los Angeles, Lakeland was not even on his radar. However, God had a way of redirecting things, in ways that he couldn't predict. While flying back to California, Colton sat down on a plane next to a beautiful girl, started a conversation, fell in love and six months later moved across the country to marry her. Since arriving in Lakeland, Colton has received a degree in Organizational Leadership at Southeastern University and has been working as the High School Pastor at Highland Park as of April 2016. Colton has a passion to see youth realize that they are not only the next generation of the church, but that they are the church now. He has a dream to see the world transformed through Godly discipleship of young leaders. He also has a dream that the Seahawks will win another championship and that he will one day be a scratch golfer. All three are a work in progress.
