Steve is a great listener and his patience adds a ton to our team…he regularly keeps us from making dumb decisions.

Carey Gautreaux

Worship & Sound/AV Team Leader

With a name like that, you gotta expect him to be an LSU boy:-) Carey went to Full Sail and works at an Audio Visual Company here in Orlando that does some pretty cool stuff. Carey designs funky lighting effects, mixes music and can haze a stage…BUT…more importantly, he can sing and play guitar…which means he has it made for life.
His wife Brooke bats her eyelashes at him lovingly whenever he’s up on stage…they have a dog that Carey says is cute and his name is Tiger. Huh…LSU…Tiger…pretty original.

THE 4 INTERNS

Welcome to Cameron Hughes, Carey Geautreaux, Neil Thatcher, and Will Reed!!!

They all bring a ton to the table and are gifted and they have character…a lethal combination!
THANK YOU, H2O for making this possible!!!

Neil Thatcher

Splash Volunteer Care

So Neil is known as one of the nicest guys on the planet. Seriously he has a great command of the character quality that many of us lack…patience:-) Neil is responsible for providing care and oversight for our Splash volunteers so that they feel supported, loved and listened to. We know that having someone who thinks about our volunteers all the time serves them and helps them give their best to our kids!

Neil and his wife Tracy have 3 kids and Neil is working on his black belt too. Neil also plays drums when we give him a break from Splash!
