Who are the church staff?

 Holbrook head shotAndrew Holbrook, Founding Pastor


I was raised on a farm in Bethel, CT.  I love to travel, watch movies, and compete in just about anything.  I studied English and History at Davidson College (yes, I know Steph Curry- sort of).  Against all odds, while serving college students in North Carolina,  I received my seminary degree from RTS Charlotte in just 9 years.   My marriage to Lauren is my greatest accomplishment and my two children (Haddie, 11/8/11 and Evelynn, 10/14/13) are my greatest joy.  For 15 years, I served the college ministry of Campus Outreach as a campus minister and pastor at Christ Covenant Church in Matthews, NC. In August of 2015, my family moved to Fairfield, CT to serve this community and share the love of Jesus to everyone we meet.

Milas - I was raised in Charlotte, NC. I have been attending Panthers games since they began in 1995. Outside of rooting for the Panthers I enjoy playing golf, eating or cooking good food, and anything that allows me to enjoy the outdoors. I have been married to my wife, Ashley, since May 2012. We welcomed our first born, Micah on May 30, 2014 and our daughter, Selah on March 2, 2017.  Before moving to Fairfield, I taught high school English for 3 years at an inner city school in Charlotte. Now I am seeking to serve students on the college campus by helping them to understand the joy of a life lived in relationship with God through Jesus Christ. 

Ashley - I was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. My 24 years in the south cultivated a deep love for Chick Fil A, sweet tea, BBQ southern charm. Before moving to Fairfield in 2015 I worked full time in children's ministry at Christ Covenant Church - the same church that I was raised in. I now serve in a similar capacity for our church here and am grateful for a job that allows me to serve the church while still primarily being home with our two precious kiddos. My favorite part of my job is introducing the church to the necessity of our children's role in the church now - not just later once they are grown up.

Davis Good, Music Coordinator


I grew up in Philadelphia loving the Phillies, summers at the swim club, beach vacations to Ocean City, NJ, and of course the best local cuisine – cheesesteaks, soft pretzels, and Rita’s Water Ice. After high school, I attended Davidson College on a lacrosse and field hockey scholarship. I graduated with a degree in history and worked for Bank of America for 10 years in corporate project management & process design. During my time there I served as a career coach and mentor and loved listening to people’s stories and helping them navigate next steps in their career. In the summer of 2015, I left Charlotte and my job at Bank of America to build a faith & work initiative that will equip people to better understand God's purposes for their daily work.
