Wayne & Kristi Northup, Lead Pastors Saints Community Church

Meet Our Lead Pastors

Wayne and Kristi met the first day of college and were close friends, but it took Wayne four years to work up the nerve to ask her out! Married in 2000, they have travelled the country together, speaking in churches, conventions, and camps. A highlight for Wayne has been the privilege of speaking in hundreds of public schools. Kristi is a first class musician who loves all styles of music. If she hears it, she can play it. Just don’t ask her to remember the words! They have three children: Libby (in middle school), Lincoln (in elementary school), Levi (a little guy) and a dog named Charlie. Our vision is to win a city, starting congregations throughout the greater New Orleans area. We want to embrace some aspects of tradition in worship, while discovering new ways to experience God. We desire to strengthen families and individuals through discipleship and community. Through our small groups, we will work side-by-side with community organizations that are already making a difference in the city.
