Sue Smith serves Life Spring Church as our Youth Pastor. Along with her husband, Jason, Sue has been a part of Life Spring Church for several years and has stepped in to lead Limitless Youth. Sue is also instrumental in service to our Sunday technical team. She typically runs the computer so you can see the words to the songs we sing and follow the message the pastor is sharing. Her day job is as a special education teacher. Jason works as a bus driver and trainer of bus drivers. They have three children who all also attend Life Spring Church.
