Our Church Leadership

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who are a part of our leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:

Minister to Students:  Chris Surigao 

Chris is orginally from Kailua, Hawaii but grew up the later years of his life in Durham, NC.  Chris and his family are so happy to live at the beach and share life with a community of believers as awesome as New Beginnings.
