Pastor Bruce has been an ordained licensed minister for well over 25 years, serving in multiple leadership positions within the local church, including Senior Pastor of New Creation Worship Center from 2003 through 2012. He has been on staff as an Associate Pastor, has worked with youth, counsels marriages, and simply has a heart to “serve” as he carries the message of
grace to the world around him.
Pastor Angela has also worked in many leadership positions within the local church, ministering in women's conferences, serving on youth boards, teaching children and teens, and serving dually as Worship Pastor and Senior Associate Pastor of New Creation Worship Center from
2003 through 2012. She has a serving spirit and ministers with “passion” and high praise, whether in word or in song.
Pastors Bruce & Angela were married in 1989, are parents to two adult children (Brittany and Deven), and will proudly brag about their 5 beautiful grandchildren. Their family has ministered together for years, and their kids often travel from their own ministries in Richmond, Virginia and Wilmington, North Carolina to minister at Salt Life Church! Together as Co-Pastors of SLC, they have a heart to offer the amazing grace of God to others, to see relationships healed and restored, and to exemplify the true freedom of a life lived in Christ.
