Meet THE Staff @ eCC

Here are the people who can help you know Jesus Christ and assist you to help others know Him.

  • Mason, his wife Megan, and their three children were warmly welcomed by ECC when they arrived in July 2015. An avid Gators and Steelers fan, Mason grew up in Apopka, FL and was graduated from seminary at Asbury Theological University in Wilmore, KY. He loves the challenge of a tough run or workout, indulging in a good book or movie, and spending time with his family. And don't forget chocolate - dark chocolate! Mason is an ordained elder in The United Methodist Church and, prior to pastoring ECC, he served church congregations in Jupiter, Altoona and Paisley, Azalea Park, and St. Petersburg. Contact Pastor Mason here.

  • RJ has called ECC home since he was 3 years old. Over the years, his faith has grown through Sunday school, AWANA, youth group, and as a member of the youth band. RJ has a heart for the people of ECC and the work God does here. 

    He finds joy in using his God-given gift of music while serving as worship leader at ECC. God has transformed RJ's heart for mission work over the past 3 years, leading him to serve three times with ECC's Mission Team in Nicaragua. A student of commercial music business at FAU, RJ is a "Star Wars" fanatic. It can be said, the force of God is strong with this one! Contact  RJ here.

  • Lisa Semoy - Youth Minister

    Lisa believes God led her to ECC and called her into ministry with youth. Her vision for TAG is a vibrant ministry that guides our youth through this period of transition and growth in their lives and helps them develop into God-centered members of society who are mature Christ followers. With a master’s degree in health administration, Lisa has over 15 years of experience in leadership and administration. Lisa and her husband have three children, and she enjoys reading, cooking, and mentoring. Her life verse is Philippians 4:13 - “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Contact Lisa here.

  • Valerie Peralta - Administrator

    Valerie’s relationship with God has changed since coming to ECC, where she found a family of transparent Christ followers. It is here that the Truth - that there is nothing she can to do to make God love her more or less because she is forgiven and set free by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ - has traveled the short but arduous distance from her head to her heart. Valerie is proud to be the wife of a U.S. Army retiree and blessed to be the mom of her two favorite soccer players. A veteran and Indiana University alumna, her passion is to inform and assist others through the written word. Contact Valerie here.

  • Diane Osterfeld - Lay Leader

    A lifelong United Methodist and charter member of ECC, Diane is a licensed registered nurse who loves reading, gardening, and especially bacon! As lay leader, she connects ECC with the community and world and helps guide others through life's transitions. Diane and her husband are Key West High School sweethearts, raising three sons to serve God and country through their church, schools, and local Boy Scout Troop 492, and their journey has included seven homes in three countries. Diane has been certified as a candidate for ordained ministry through The United Methodist Church and is currently attending seminary. Contact Diane here.

  • Trish Sperberg - Treasurer

    Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Trish comes to South Florida after living in Atlanta for 9 years. Trish has experience as an auditor and as an independent contractor in sales, and she sees God's hand in bringing her to ECC and this position. Trish enjoys being real and exploring this new area with her husband, son and daughter. Contact Trish here.

  • Cathy Williams - Deacon emeritus

    Cathy Williams helps ECC "bridge the gap" between the church and the world through assisting in worship, connecting worshippers, and leading Bible studies. As a retired ordained deacon in The United Methodist Church, Cathy serves as an integral part of the worship, leadership, and programming ministries of ECC. Contact Pastor Cathy here.
