Email us for info about our Weekly small group meetings

As a church, we are called to be "synchronized" with God's will, His Spirit's lead, and His Son's example. The Christian life is an impossible one to live through your own efforts. Only one person - Jesus - has successfully and perfectly lived the life that God has called us all to, and through His death and resurrection, His Spirit now dwells within the repentant of heart. It is our pursuit as a youth ministry to live our lives in sync with the Spirit of God and to be a light in a world that is growing increasingly darker. 


We are a family of people who are walking through the ups and downs of life together, encouraging each other along the way and positioning ourselves to be a sharpening tool in the hand of God in one another's lives. We are a community of believers who are discovering everyday the beauty and wonder of walking through this life hand in hand with God. 


We believe that the competition that is so often felt between churches only exists because we allow it to exist, not because it's the way that it was intended to be. We strive to make known and live out the Life of Jesus by playing our role in COMPLETING the church by BEING the church, not competing with churches by being A church. We all stem from the Vine - who is Jesus.

  • Youth Pastors

    Jhason & Brittany Smith

    Originally asked to step into a brief, six-month interim youth leadership position at Eastgate, Jhason has now been serving as the leader of Eastgate's youth ministry since 2009 and was ordained in 2013 as Youth Pastor. At the age of 16 Jhason discovered that God's desire for him was to be in youth ministry. As the years have progressed it's been a beautiful journey as other passions and desires for the church as a whole have blossomed in Jhason. 


    Jhason married his best friend and beautiful wife Brittany, who also shares a strong passion for the church at large. Brittany is a Texas native but moved to Nashville in 2010 and immediately fell in love with Eastgate on her first visit. In 2011 she began serving at Sync Student Ministries and later in 2016 was ordained as Co-Youth Pastor. Jhason & Brittany both possess big hearts for youth ministry and worship music in the church and greatly desire to see the body of Christ regain its hunger for true worship.

    Eric & Hannah Dunn

    Eric & Hannah Dunn met while attending Sync as students back in 2009. Eric started coming to Sync as a Freshmen in high school and was a core member of the youth ministry throughout his high school years. His deep love for music led him to join Sync’s worship team where he faithfully served for multiple years. Upon graduating, Eric joined Sync’s leadership team as a Student Leader and began assisting in Sync’s Worship team weekly. In September of 2013 Eric was promoted to Youth Leader where he began co-leading Sync’s worship team with Jude. 


    Hannah first joined Sync as a shy 7th grader who was tagging along with her older sister who had already been attending Sync for some time. Hannah very quickly became a core member in the youth ministry. Throughout the years as she grew in confidence  (and with a little push from those around her) she started singing on Sync’s worship team and immediately discovered a deep passion for worship music. That passion grew and grew as Hannah served faithfully as a foundational member of the worship team for her entire high school years.  Hannah graduated in 2015 and was one of Sync’s first students to attend from 7th grade through 12th grade.


    Their relationship story is a beautiful one. They met in 2009 at a young age, developed feelings for each other shortly thereafter in 2010, dated throughout high school, which ultimately led up to Eric “popping the question” in 2014 - Hannah emphatically said “YES!” In September of 2015 Eric and Hannah stepped away from the youth ministry to focus on some new opportunities that God had laid before them while also getting prepared for their wedding! The time couldn't pass fast enough and the two of them tied the knot in May of 2017. Throughout all of the transitions their lives have seen these last years, Eric and Hannah remained faithfully committed members of Eastgate’s Sunday worship team; where they now serve as Worship Leaders. In 2018 Eric and Hannah felt God leading them back to their old stomping grounds in the youth ministry at Sync where they currently serve as Sync’s Youth Pastoral Assistants.

    Jude Smith

    Jude began his time at Sync as a student who faithfully served on our worship team. After graduating from the youth ministry, once he had completed high school, Jude felt like his time at Sync wasn't finished. Since then, he is still faithfully serving Sync, now as our current youth worship leader and as one of our youth leaders. Jude is a Nashville native and musician extraordinaire. You should check out his EP on iTunes here. He also is a talented filmmaker! Our youth ministry has definitely reaped the benefits of his many talents throughout the years. We're very thankful that Jude calls Sync home on Friday nights.

    Beth Curtis

    When Beth first started coming to Sync she was a shy, quiet teenager who didn't quite know how to take our loud, loving bunch of teenagers who greet everyone with a hug. Throughout her high school years, Beth quickly became one of our most faithful students. Anytime we had any event, Beth was almost always there. We're glad we didn't scare her away! Fast forwarding to today, that timid teen has grown into a witty, confident, and gentle leader in our youth ministry. Beth is currently a student at Lipscomb University where she is majoring in Marketing.

    Abigail Mccormick

    Abigail first attended Sync in 2013 as a Sophomore in high school.  She very quickly found home and community at Sync and became a faithful member of the youth ministry. After her graduation in 2015 she immediately began serving as a Student Leader at Sync where her compassion for the students and willing heart to help anywhere that was needed flourished. In 2017 she was promoted to Youth Leader where her desire for helping people has grown into a beautifully strong lifelong passion. Abigail is also an extremely talented musician and singer. She serves faithfully on Eastgate’s Sunday morning worship team and also assists Jude in helping lead Sync’s worship team.  Her massive heart for people led her to study Nursing at Lipscomb University where she is set to graduate in 2019.
