While I’ve lived here in Tucson for more than half of my life, Huntsville, Alabama is where I was born and spent my childhood. Since moving to Tucson, I’ve come to love Tucson’s beautiful desert scenery and its people!
After graduating from high school, I briefly attended the U of A before deciding that I wanted to get a ministry degree from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. For the past couple of years, I’ve been working on completing my Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies and will graduate in May of 2020. My hope is to eventually acquire a Masters of Divinity and Clinical Counseling degree.
My young adult years were spent at Christ Community Church where Rob was my youth pastor. After graduating from high school, I returned to serve as a high school small group leader, as well as the summer intern during the summer of 2018. Last summer (2019) I had the opportunity to work for a youth ministry organization called LeaderTreks. My position with LeaderTreks allowed me to lead short-term mission trips for high school students in both Honduras and Costa Rica. Upon returning to Tucson in August of 2019, Rob invited me to join him in planting Living Branch Church. I’m so excited to be a part of this team and to serve with LBC in the Vail Community.
My close friends and family will tell you that I am an avid learner, at times, annoyingly so. I am an explorer at heart. I enjoy reading, listening to music and podcasts, wood-working, and being outdoors. I also love spending time with close friends and my girlfriend, Sandra.
Community Engagement Team
Clint & Sara Westberry
Hey y’all! We are Clint and Sara Westberry. Our story started when we met leading freshman Bible study at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. We got married soon after we finished school and began our life together in Texas. During our time in college we had the great joy and opportunity to be a part of a recently planted church. After we got married, we stepped into a volunteer staff position leading the middle school and high school ministry. This was a great adventure learning how to love and serve students and do ministry together. In 2018, we prayerfully decided to move to Arizona to be closer to Sara’s family and her hometown. As we settled into new jobs and a new community in Corona de Tucson we started attending University City Church. This church has been a wonderful blessing to us for the past two years as a place to serve and grow and get to know our community. God laid it on our hearts to be a part of launching Living Branch Church after attending one of the interest meetings for the church plant in the fall of 2019. The clear vision of connecting people to Jesus within our community resonated with how we try to live our lives. We are so excited for the opportunity to lead the Community Engagement Team at Living Branch Church! In this role we hope to invite people to belong, find unique ways to serve people and make them feel loved, and ultimately connect people to Jesus.
The [Welcome] Home Team
Ricky & Delaney Morrison
Hey! We are Ricky and Delaney Morrison. We met while serving together at Elements City Church in Tucson, and in October of 2017 we tied the knot and committed our lives to one another, and to serving the Lord. Four days after our wedding, we moved to Illinois so Ricky could fulfill his active duty enlistment in the USAF. While in Illinois, we served in our small-town church and continued to grow a passion for connecting people to Jesus. We returned to Arizona in July of 2019 and reconnected with our church family at Elements. After much prayer and connecting to the vision and mission of Living Branch Church, we felt led to join the launch team. With continued involvement in leadership and launch team meetings, we are ecstatic to lead the Hospitality Team at LBC! Our desire for this team is simple. First, we want to connect with people by lovingly inviting them into the Living Branch family with a “come as you are” culture. Secondly, we hope to assist our new friends as they come on to campus by creating a welcoming and easily accessible environment and experience for everyone. Lastly, we hope to help connect people to Jesus by encouraging them to explore and experience the many opportunities that LBC has to offer! We are so excited to grow in community with you and look forward to meeting you soon!
