Sean Jazdzyk

Senior Pastor

In 2001, Sean and Tara Jazdzyk married and today they enjoy a wonderful family life with their two sons, Caden and Carson. Their prayer has always been that they would raise their two men of God upon the foundation of Christ that they have celebrated in their marriage.

Sean and Tara have very different stories in their Christian heritage. Sean is a first-generation Christian and minister, whereas, Tara is a seventh-generation Christian and a third-generation minister. Their different backgrounds have united them with a deep desire to continue seeking new things and innovative change for the community, yet at the same time, still recognize and honor the tradition of faith served by the generations before us all.

With this unique mix of family backgrounds and the incredible experience of serving on the staff of a fast-growing church like Element, the call to start a new, life-giving church has been birthed in Sean and Tara’s heart… a church called, Thrive Chapel.

Over the past four and a half years, Sean and Tara have had the distinct privilege to serve as the Executive Pastor for Pastor Erik Lawson and the congregation of Element Church in St. Louis, Missouri. Element Church began in 2006, and due to the blessing of God and the great vision of Pastor Erik, it now reaches more than 3,000 people weekly. In three of the last four years, Element Church has been recognized in Outreach Magazine as one of the top-100 fastest growing churches in America.

It has been an absolute honor for Sean and Tara to personally witness their pastors lead and build a church with integrity. The shepherding Pastor Erik and Christy provide has yielded life-long gratefulness for their sacrifices and for the spiritual accountability they give this ministry.
