We trust in leadership that is driven by volunteers, and supported by staff. Whether they are teaching on Sunday, creating music for gathering events, caring for our kids, leading our service initiatives, or executing the “behind the scenes” organization details, they have committed themselves to serving God and our community.
Wes Vander Lugt / Lead Teacher
Wes is our lead teacher. You’ll see him front and center on most Sunday mornings, and patiently leading the staff and Elders during the week. He’s responsible for nurturing the mission and vision of Warehouse and developing leaders within our community. Wes works with partner churches and the community to engage Warehouse’s resources and people to help create change in Charlotte. You can get to know Wes by reading his blog, Enact.
