Seth comes to C12 with a vocational background that fits right in with the C12 Chair model. The first half of his professional career was spent serving as a youth, college, and young adults pastor. He was on staff with multiple Presbyterian Churches and also worked with The Navigators, who focus on 1:1 discipleship. During these professional years, he was able to pioneer new ministries along with build upon established ministries that needed some revitalization. Seth also received his Master’s of Divinity Degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando.
After this season, an opportunity developed to work in the marketplace in the banking industry. He rose through the ranks quickly and began to manage 50-million-dollar branches with multiple regional banks, overseeing all of their deposit and loan growth. In his role as a banking VP, Seth was able to walk shoulder-to-shoulder with owners and CEOs to help guide them in making business decisions that would put their business in a position to flourish. The experiences and knowledge he gained working in the marketplace were invaluable in understanding how to see work as ministry. You might sum up Seth’s professional journey before joining C12 as going from being a Minister to being a Minister of Finance!
