Ron Garner
Ron Garner

Lead Pastor/Growth Coordinator

Ron is originally from Florida but has spent the bulk of his life in the Carolinas. He went to Furman University for his undergrad work and Asbury Theological Seminary for his Masters in Divinity.

He is married to Megan, an art teacher in Forsyth County Schools. They have two teenage daughters, McKenna and Molly. Ron loves reading, hiking, camping, biking, backpacking and basically anything having to do with the outdoors. He also loves meeting new people and having deep conversations about God, philosophy, and astrophysics (2/3 of that is true).

He is generally clueless about all things regarding sports, but the G3 community has hope that one day this will change. Ron believes that following Jesus gives shape and meaning to every aspect of life. Because of this, he has committed his life to inviting others to join him in this journey.

Ron oversees G3’s Grow ministries (Growth Groups, children and youth ministries).

Currently, she lives in Pfafftown, NC with her husband, Brian, two children, Cadence and Noah, and two dogs, Jake & Abby.

Steph is a huge sports fanatic and ESPN junkie, a Carolina Tarheel girl, and she enjoys listening to, playing and writing music. Her favorite verse is Romans 12:2…“Do not be conformed to the pattern of the world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Her worship mantra is “I desire to create worship environments where people are drawn into the presence of the living God and are transformed in such a way that they live their daily lives in response to God’s grace.”

Steph oversees G3’s Gather ministries (Sunday morning worship experience).
