I truly believe that every pastor’s objective in any area of ministry should be, to fulfill the Great Commission. This is my goal and what I strive to accomplish as a pastor. I believe that we are to preach, teach, make disciples, and baptize around the world. I can sum up my own personal objective like this, “to keep the faith and finish the race!” I want to see men, women, and children of all ages, grow in their personal walk with Jesus Christ.
I believe in equipping and empowering the men and women of God that He has entrusted to me. That involves me getting involved with them. I desire to build disciples that in return build disciples. I believe in planting churches that in return plant churches.
My vision is simple yet grounded in the great commission. Simply to be a church that multiplies.
My passion is preaching and making disciples and my commitment to the church is to do exactly that!
Assistant to the Pastor
My role as Administrative Assistant and Art Director for the church allows me to use my God given talents for His glory. Those talents being a desire to organize and create. I also serve in the church as a singer on the Legacy worship team.
I was born in New Haven, CT and am of Puerto Rican heritage. I grew up in Orlando, FL. I fell in love with Disney movies and so I decided to go to school for Studio Art and Computer Animation. I love, comic books, dogs, makeup, crafting, and fashion.
My idea of fun is spending time with my husband, Chris, and our sweet baby girl, Thalia. My favorite pastime is a movie marathon, with friends, family, and some NY style pizza.
Romans 12:10-13: Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.
Legacy Discipleship Pastor/Hollydale Lead Pastor
Hi my name is Justin. I serve as the discipleship pastor at Legacy and also have the privilege of serving as lead pastor to our Hollydale campus. I am a husband to my wife Ashley and a father to my little boy Judah. I enjoy reading, playing board games, and playing tennis. I equally love Star Wars and Georgia Football. I equally hate Georgia Tech and the Florida Gators.
The thing you need to know about me is that I love a good story. Whether it be told through movies, books, or games… it does not matter. Among some that have impacted me the most are Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Chronicles of Narnia, and Battlestar Galactica. (Notice that I did not include Harry Potter on this list for this simple reason that It is not as good as the ones I did include.)
But the best story I’ve encountered is the one found in the Bible. I am convinced that a Jewish man named Jesus of Nazareth completely turned the world upside down 2000 years ago. Although some are better than others, I am now on a journey trying to figure out how to align my life with his and inviting others to do the same.
I’m the worship leader for both Legacy and Hollydale.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching Marvel movies, or talking about why everyone else should be watching Marvel movies. I spend a considerable amount of time trying to convince Justin (pictured above) to read Harry Potter rather than just settle on the movies. I also make music. My life quote is, “When life gives you lemons, put a ganjo in it.” I married my wonderful wife Emily in 2014, and we have a crazy pup named Murphy.
Minister to Students
I am proud to say that I was born and raised in Cobb County, GA, where I met and married my high school sweetheart, Angie, who has been by my side for 27 years now both in marriage and in working with the students of Legacy. We have 5 nearly grown children all of which have grown up in the youth ministry here at Legacy.
I enjoy pretty much all sports with the exception of golf, synchronized swimming, and NASCAR. I am a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan and have been since the Danny White days. (If you know who Danny White is then you know that I’ve been a fan for a long time!)
I am blessed to be able to spend time with the 6th through 12th grade students of Legacy, as well as the college/career age group. It is my goal to minister to each student through weekly gatherings, yearly camps and retreats, and ongoing events and service project opportunities within the community. In my nearly 15 years of ministering the these students, I have developed a love for building relationships with students as well as a deep satisfaction in seeing them grow in their faith and in turn reflect Christ to those that they encounter in their daily life.
I may be “old” in years but forever “young” at heart!
Galatians 6:9: So we must not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up.
I’ve served with “Little’s” for as long as I can remember, beginning in my teenage years. I began teaching preschool in 2004 and since then I have worked and served at several different church preschools in 2 different States. My passion is the littlest ones in the church and I was ecstatic when God opened up the door for me to run this amazing ministry in 2016 within Legacy Church. Most Sundays and Wednesdays, you’ll find my wonderful husband Scott serving right alongside of me. Scott & I have been married for 16 years and we have 3 beautiful children. Chloe is 12, Ella is 9, and Wyatt is 4. You’ll also find my children serving and helping most weeks in some capacity within the preschool ministry. Our family has thoroughly enjoyed the journey that God has taken us on here at Legacy and we are excited about what plans God has for Legacy Little’s in the future.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.” Psalm 127:3-5
God has blessed me with a supportive husband, Keith, for 31 years who faithfully serves right beside me. Our only daughter and her husband currently minister to college students as they serve on staff at Truett-McConnell University and are expecting our first grandchild.
I recently retired from Cobb County School District after an amazing career as an elementary teacher for 32 years. Upon retiring, my prayer was to be obedient to service opportunities that honor God. It is a privilege to serve kids and their families while equipping volunteer leaders as we seek heart transformations that can only come from God. Isaiah 40:8 guides my planning as I am reminded often, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”
I’m 22 years old and I assist with our ministry technical needs. I grew up just outside of Tampa, Florida and moved with my family to Dallas in the summer of 2013. That family includes 7 brothers and my twin, Caleb.
I have always had an interest in technology. I built my first web app at the age of 9. My vision is to empower ministries with technology to reach our internet-enabled world, and use the ever-growing sea of tools that are available to make ministry work easier.
My Name is Tracy Lane. I have been happily married to Tommy Lane for 19 years. We have two beautiful daughters, Tabatha (age 18) and Trinity (age 16).
I am an original member of Legacy and have been the Financial Secretary here for twelve years. I was saved when I was seven years old. I have a passion for serving others. I feel very thankful that I am able to use the gifts God gave me to serve him. I am detail oriented, organized and try to stay one step ahead of what is needed and expected. I tend to be prepared for almost everything.
I love serving Jesus and the people at Legacy.
