Matthew Sink 2018

 

Matthew Sink, Senior Minister

I started working at Pinedale in 2007. I love both the people I serve with and the people I get to serve! It is an honor to be part of a congregation that loves God and is willing to pour themselves out to let others know how much He loves them! My wife Tonya  and I have been married since 1996. We have three kids (Jansen, Elissa, and Emma). In addition to being their biggest fan, I’m also a fan of sports (watching more than playing these days), Seinfeld, hiking, writing, and french fries.

Evan Norris 2018

 

Evan Norris, AV and Communications 

I started working at Pinedale in 2012 as the student ministry intern. After leaving to work at a church plant in 2014, I discovered that I loved the city of Winston Salem. As a student minister I also enjoyed working to create technology to enhance our church services. After working there for 2+ years, God called me back to serve as the full time minister over our production team, to enhance our technology to better reach people in our community, and create greater impact through our worship services. I’m married to Christina, who serves as a kids minister at Jefferson Church in Rural Hall. We both enjoy hiking, travel, and spending time in downtown Winston.

 Daniel Dominguez 2018

 

Daniel Dominguez, Middle School Minister

I’m a small-town Kansas boy that moved to North Carolina for good in 2018.  Pinedale has felt like home since I interned here in 2014 before graduating from Ozark Christian College.  I love podcasts, Reddit, 90s sitcoms, pop culture, road trips, and seemingly useless facts.  Middle School ministry is the best because it’s a pivotal time for every student—physically, spiritually, and fragrantly!  I’ll show you my 8th Grade photo if you show me yours when you stop by my office and color on my coloring wall.
