Jim Anderson, Hospitality Team Leader    City:  Coventry   Why SouthPointe?  I was searching for a place to worship and serve, free from the "trappings" of traditional "religion".

Ernie Balasco, Special Ops Leader    City:  Exeter   Why SouthPointe?  I found SouthPointe (or it found me) six months after its grand opening. I truly found a spiritual home and met other men who have had a major influence in helping me to understand how to grow in a relationship with Jesus. Several months ago, Tanner asked me to lead a Social Service ministry. Using some of my social work skills and Bible teachings to help SP families is a perfect transition, as I’m semi-retired.   Hobbies:  Hiking every day with my dog Buddy! I like playing in my barn where I find things I never knew I had! I heat with wood, so I'm either cutting, splitting or stacking wood. It's great exercise and I love the outdoors.   Fun Fact:  Before getting my MSW at RIC, I was a bartender for several years. Ironically, I specialized in alcohol studies at RIC!

Amber Bennett, Jr. High Anchor Leader    City:  Coventry   Why SouthPointe?  Before we moved north, we had a chance to listen online to Tanner’s teachings. We wanted a place we could call home. And with 5 kiddos, it was important that we found a church family right away! SouthPointe has become that for us: our family. We’ve been blessed over and over, continually blown away at how God placed such an amazing church home in our path.   Hobbies:  Singing, crafting, reading and playing piano   Fun Fact:  I got to sing at Carnegie Hall when I was in college.

John Bennett, Jr. High Anchor Leader    City:  Coventry   Why SouthPointe?  I transferred to the New England area for work several years ago. After having worked in ministry since college, finding a church looked a little different for us. It wasn’t so much about the programming for kids or how good the worship was. It was about finding a church that was real. It was about finding a church with leaders who were honest and vulnerable, being the hands and feet of God. It was about finding a group of people that loved God and loved people, unconditionally. In finding SouthPointe, we found people who were real, honest and vulnerable, holding out their hands ready to love us.   Hobbies:  I enjoy playing and coaching soccer, grilling, being outdoors, and watching Ohio State football   Fun Fact:  I am a Buckeye through and through and can’t stand the state of *ichigan

Becky Brooks, Pre-K Lead Teacher    City:  East Greenwich   Why SouthPointe:  I love the passion at SouthPointe for everyone to experience God's unconditional love. I believe that is God's desire too, and I want to be part of that effort! I love working with children because they are not shy about their desire for love, and there is little more exciting to me than the privileged of introducing them to Jesus, who loves them more than anyone else ever can or will.   Hobbies:  My dog, my yard, and my friends   Fun Fact:  Several years ago, I kept about 15 people under water to make sure they lived. I was a scuba dive master in Palm Beach, and Donald Trump's yacht went right over us. Now you know why I kept them underwater... Those were big propellers!

Denise Burrows, Anchor 56 Leader    City:  Warwick   Why SouthPointe?  Because of the authenticity of the leadership and the people at the church.

Bethany Green, Anchor Kids Coach    City:  Warwick   Why SouthPointe?  I love being part of the SouthPointe family! In it, I’ve found a group of people that cares for and encourages each other. I am so grateful to be raising our 3 kids in an environment that will support them as they grow and love them… even when they are crazy!

Any of that accompanied by ice cream or coffee with family or friends sounds great to me!   Fun Fact:  I participated in a contest of trying to catch little pigs in a mud pit! It is messy, tricky…and hilarious!

Tanner Green, Lead Pastor    City:  Warwick   Why SouthPointe?  I realize a lead pastor "is supposed" to love their church, but the reality is that many pastors feel stressed out and lonely. I consider myself blessed to feel the opposite. I love SP because they don't expect me to be perfect and respond with grace to may failures, sins, and fears. I love the diversity of our church, people from different perspectives all coming together with love... most of the time. ;) I love the community in which we are situated, and the community partners we get to work with.   Hobbies:  Any and all food, especially local/new/unique spots. Pizza is my favorite. A good burger may be my second favorite. I also attempt to try nearly every coffee shop in the state. Family. Friends. Watching sports. Running.   Fun Fact:  I used to be a substitute teacher. Here's the story with no context: I vomited once... a student proceeded to run his hand through it. It's a great story that I'd be happy to share in person. (Also, I thought Spanky was one of the seven dwarves until my wife informed me differently.)

Anthony Harrison, Gatherings Director    City:  North Kingstown   Why SouthPointe?  We were searching for a new church home and place to do ministry and heard about SP thought Slingshot Group, a church staffing organization. That led me to Jordan, who led me to Tanner. The funny part is… We were on vacation here in RI, and I received an email from Tanner about the job WHILE WE WERE HERE! We ended up having lunch that very day, and I got to hear about SP and its mission for the next 2 hours. I was hooked!   Hobbies:  Surfing, hiking, snowboarding, and eating my wife's awesome cooking!   Fun Fact:  I have no problem singing and speaking in front of 1000's of people, but I am terrified in a room full of ten.

Jamie Lankford, Home Groups Director    City:  Warwick   Why SouthPointe?  We relocated our family to join what God is doing through SouthPointe. We never imagined how quickly Rhode Island would become home, and SouthPointe has become our family. We love being a part of something bigger than ourselves and seeing God work in the community we love so much.   Hobbies:  Sports - especially baseball, doing work in my home and yard, and hanging with friends.   Fun Fact:  If I retire, I want to be a tour guide at Fenway.

Marc Liebenthal, Production Leader    City:  Westerly   Why SouthPointe?  We’d been attending another church in the East Greenwich area for a couple of years, and we were deeply involved. We were serving, leading a home group and plugged into the greatest extent possible, but we never really felt a part of a true community. We started going to SouthPointe and immediately felt the community that we had been lacking before.   Hobbies:  Downhill skiing, cheering for the Chicago Bears, home improvement projects, watching movies (especially Marvel movies), and board games   Fun Fact:  I have smoked a cigar on top of a nuclear submarine at sea, with a pod of dolphins off of the bow, at sunrise.

Priscilla Liebenthal, Missions Leader    City:  Westerly   Why SouthPointe?  It's okay not to be okay, and I am TOTALLY not okay, most of the time. We love the authenticity and transparency at SouthPointe. I love that I belong at SouthPointe being who I am now, broken and messed up, just the way I belong with Jesus. We love that we are always redirected towards Jesus at SouthPointe when we are struggling or when we are doing well. I am not okay but I am okay right where I am.   Hobbies:  Board games, reading, and having coffee with good friends.   Fun Fact:  I speak in a Chinese accent, which I don't have, when I get flustered.

Catherine Lott, Elementary Lead Teacher    City:  Saunderstown   Why SouthPointe?  We found SouthPointe 6 months after it started. We were actually lead here by a pastor of another local church that we were trying out; he suggested we check out SouthPointe. We literally Googled SouthPointe in the parking lot of that Cranston church, went the very next Sunday, and we were home. I still remember that first day walking in, and the faces that genuinely greeted us and welcomed our family. We knew we found our church and our people.   Hobbies:  Cooking (love trying new recipes), hanging our with friends, traveling, and spending time with my husband, 2 boys, and our dog.   Fun Fact:  I graduated from high school in Kuwait (yes, the middle eastern country). If you do the math, you'll realize that was right around the time of the invasion. I escaped from the captive country and returned after the war to finish high school.

As someone who didn't grow up in the church, I loved how welcoming and accepting the SouthPointe community was when I first arrived. The people here have become an extension of my family - there to celebrate the wins and ride out the lows.   Hobbies:  Spending time with family and friends, exercising, being near the water, working on our home, and cheering on New England sports teams!   Fun Fact:  I ran the bases at Fenway Park!
