Leadership

Sean DeMars

Hey everyone, my name is Sean Demars and I have the pleasure of serving as one of the pastors of the church at 6th Avenue. The Lord saved me from my sins at eighteen and I haven’t looked back since. (Phil 3:14) After serving five years in the military, the Lord led our family to Peru as missionaries, and then brought us back to America in 2015. Amber and I have two children, Patience and Isabella. When we’re not serving the church we like to CrossFit, read good books, and spend time with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Michael Waugh

My name is Michael Waugh, and I have the privilege of serving as one of the elders here at 6th Ave. I was not brought up in a Christian home, but in my early 20’s I was prompted by the Holy Spirit to read the Bible, and during that reading I was convicted that Jesus was real, and that I was a sinner. I became a believer, but very immature in the faith. Later, my wife Tammy and I began attending 6th Ave., and God has continued to grow my faith and understanding through the church. Tammy and I have two grown children and four grandchildren. I work full time for a local manufacturer, and in addition to the church and work, I enjoy working out and also playing guitar.

Grant Miller

My name is Grant Miller, and I have had the joy of serving as an elder at 6th Avenue for several years.  6th Ave is the only church I have ever attended.  I once believed at a young age that I knew Christ, but it was only at the age of 24 that I was truly convicted of my need for a Savior, and I repented of my sins and began to trust in Christ in 2008.  The Lord has since been very kind to open my eyes to the deep truths of his Word.  My wife Alison and I have been married since 2005, and we have four children (Cohen, Micah, Eisley, and Maddux).  I work for an engineering company in Huntsville, AL.  I love spending time with my family, listening to music, reading, and being with the members of the church.

Will Stephenson

My name is Will Stephenson, and I have the privilege to serve at 6th Avenue as a Pastoral Assistant.  I was raised in a Christian home, but I did not come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ until I was fifteen years old.  I still remember the faithfully preached sermon that confronted me with my sin against God.  When I realized I was an enemy of God and that He still loved me with such a great love, I repented of my sins and trusted in him for my salvation. Since that day, I have sought out opportunities to serve in any leadership capacity I could find.  But God has graciously thrown on the brakes and brought me to a much-needed season of studying and listening.  I married my high school sweetheart, Jackie, in November of 2017.  I love reading good books, listening to podcasts, watching the Arsenal Gunners, and spending time with my church family.

Jacob Johnson

Hi, I am Jacob. I grew up in Decatur where I attended church on Sundays growing up. I was baptized in my youth and professed to be a Christian. In reality, I showed no fruit of a life marked by repentance of sin and faith in Christ. In my best estimation, the Lord saved me by His grace when I was about 16 years old. I currently work full time in Huntsville, AL, and serve as a pastoral intern at 6th Avenue. My wife and I have been married just over four years and are expecting our first child. I enjoy reading good books, playing music, disc golf, and spending time with my wife.
