Pastor Sparks accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior at a Christian camp when he was 7 years old. He started preaching at the age of 12 and was called to preach at 16. He graduated from Bible college in 1992. He married Heidi in 1995. They have 5 children who are all involved in ministry. After spending several years in ministry as an associate pastor, senior pastor, and an evangelist the Lord called him here at Grace in 2014. His love of the Lord and knowledge of the Bible brings excitement in the preaching and clear vision for our church.
