In this role, he has been interim pastor for three additional pastoral transitions and has faithfully served the church and our lead pastors.
Rex and Debbie have two grown children, Tyler and Ryan. Tyler is married to Patrick Mahoney, our former children's pastor's son. They have three children, Connor, Aubrey and Ella.
