Adam Burnett

Administrative Pastor/Worship Pastor


Adam is the newest member of the pastoral staff at City Church, joining our team in the Fall of 2015. He and his wife, Sarah, have two incredibly sweet children: Wrigley and Turner. Adam has a passion for worship, but not just on Sunday mornings; but as a lifestyle. He and Sarah enjoy walks on the beach and candlelit dinners...however, since they have two young kids, they enjoy walks with the stroller and food-fighting dinners.


Austin Rhodes

Children's Pastor


Austin joined the City Church in June 2014 after graduating from the Baptist College of Florida. Austin is the newlywed on our staff, having married his wife Alex in 2015. Austin brings a genuine love for people that is obvious instantly when you meet him. His kindness is contagious, as is his positivity. Austin is also a “kid-magnet.” Austin has quickly made a reputation around City Church for having no-limits attitude when it comes to reaching kids for Christ. 


Samantha Seaborn

Missions Director/Worship


Samantha is a long time member of City Church. Since she began on staff since 2007, she has served in almost every area of ministry we have. She and her husband Jamey are amazing servants who have the ability to make everything around them better through tireless work and unique creativity!


Angie Davis

Executive Assistant

Angie joined the team in late 2014. Angie brings a blend of experience from both the corporate world and the church world. Her background is in marketing, communications, & design, so she oversees all of our publications, social media, and office needs. Angie brings a kindness to everyone to which she ministers. We are truly blessed to have her on our team.


Jerry Street

Building Superintendent


Jerry is our longest tenured employee at City Church, having served CC over 30 years.  He has the old school approach to new challenges and the expertise to be able to build, tear down, or even replace all the crazy ideas that our staff dreams up.  He is our backbone when it comes to making our ministries come alive with a hammer and a nail. He and his wife Ann are faithful members of our preschool ministry.
