I am the lucky husband of Rev. Ashley Cheek. Together we have three children, Lydia, Nicholas and Ada. As a family, we enjoy riding bikes, recreating at the neighborhood parks and going on adventures all over the east coast together. It’s not uncommon to see us dancing in our house or in the car to our favorite songs. I grew up in New Hampshire as an altar boy in the Greek Church. Traveling to Queens University of Charlotte for my undergraduate degree, I spent many Sundays visiting different churches. I’m continually intrigued by the many creative ways people worship. I have a particular passion for creative and engaging worship. During my time in Charlotte I worked to create and grow new and alternative worship experiences. After serving on the staff at Myers Park Presbyterian Church in Charlotte for eight years, I received a call to Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church in Severna Park, Maryland. There, Ashley and I worked together to transform their family ministry. We have a heart for growing faithful families and we have a heart for loving people.
I believe the mission of the church can be boiled down to one of Jesus’ final commands. Around a table as the disciples and Jesus are breaking bread together, Jesus invites them and us to “Love one another.”
I tell you what, if we can just do that and do it with arms wide open, then the church will continue to grow and be a source of light and hope to a world that needs it.
If you’re looking for a church home I invite you to stop on by First Presbyterian Church. Here you will find folks who love God and love others. See you soon!
