Wayne Bushnell

Lead Minister

Wayne and his wife Kim have been married since 1994. They have four children (Kathryn, Nathan, Madelyn and Owen). He and Kim began serving at Northside in 1994 as Youth Minister. During that season, Wayne also assisted in worship ministry, children’s ministry, preaching and teaching.

In 2007, he transitioned out of youth ministry and, following a successful one year transition plan with former lead minister Ed Holt, became the Lead Minister of Northside Christian Church. Wayne is passionate about connecting people to Christ and one another.

Serving the local church has been Wayne’s life long passion. Wayne loves preaching, music, theatre, sound effects, sports and coffee. He has thoroughly enjoyed watching his kids actively engage with church, sports and music. There is a good chance on any given week to run into him at a sporting event or musical performance.
