Senior Pastor

Justin originally joined the staff of Westmeade as Student Pastor in the Fall of 2012, but through God’s sovereignty and the support of this incredible church, he was called as Pastor of Westmeade in October of 2018. Justin has been married to Amanda, the perfect girl for him, since October of 2005. They have two beautiful children, Claire and Jax. He earned his Master’s of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary with an emphasis in Christian Education in 2004 and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Communications from Mississippi College in 2001. Justin’s favorite things to do apart from the church family involve anything with his family, watching football (specifically the Green Bay Packers), reading, and trying new things (mainly new foods)! Justin has a passion to communicate the Word of God for what it says rather than what we want to take from it. His love for the Church points back to being raised in church and seeing the love of Christ on display through its members.

Julie grew up in Oklahoma.  She came to know the Lord Jesus as her Savior and accepted His calling on her life to serve Him through His church. She has served churches in Oklahoma, Texas, and for the last 20 plus years here at Westmeade. It is a joy and privilege to serve people and to share what Jesus is and can be to them.  Nothing is more exciting than seeing people come to know Jesus as Savior and seeing how He transforms their lives!  “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
