Finding God in today’s world can seem like a never ending journey. We don’t think we have all of the answers, but we know the journey is a whole lot better with great friends. Our mission statement, “love God: love others”, describes what we think it means to be in a deep and life giving relationship with God and the people we find ourselves living life with.
Introducing Lance Svendsen – NEW director of Youth Ministries
Lance joined the Stanwich team in August 2013 after serving in youth ministry for 7 years at Renaissance Church in New Jersey. He attended Philadelphia Biblical University (now Cairn University) where he majored in both Biblical Studies and Business Administration.
Lance enjoys traveling, going to Broadway musicals, anything tourist related and competing in endurance events. He recently ran a 50 mile race through Bear Mountain, and is competing in the 2013 NYC marathon. Lance also founded a charity called “RunAnyway” after the NYC marathon was canceled last November. Lance doesn’t like eating folded potato chips, most green things, and he wears his socks inside out . Lance describes himself as a pizza and frozen yogurt connoisseur and always accepts invites to try new types and styles.
