I’ve been working with high school students since I graduated from UGA in 2002. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Jenny, a joyful son, Knox, a beautiful girl, Lyla and newborn baby Ryder. My passion has always been reaching high school students where they are and connecting in a way that leads to a real change.
Parkview School Director
Born in San Diego, California I was raised by a single mother with my older brother. Faith, Family, and Sports have always been a large part of my life as I attended church regularly with my family and played multiple sports with and against my older brother.
In 2003 I moved from my hometown of San Diego, Ca. to Atlanta, Ga. to join a non-profit organization, The Fernando Foundation. Over the next four years I played an integral role in bringing hope, community and a competitive sportsmanship to disabled athletes through the sport of power soccer. After my time with the Fernando Foundation I spent the next three years with nation’s fastest growing school fundraising company, Booster Enterprises. While with Booster Enterprises, I spent many hours engaging students of all levels while leading teams to produce the highest results for their clients. With the many lessons learned through my life I hope to use all of my experiences to inspire the next generation at Parkview High School, just as my older brother and mentor, Jesse Muñoz, Jr., inspired me.
I believe that through NG3 I can make the impact that will lead to, students having strong character, communities that are united, and change that produces future leaders. I am a blessed husband to Lynneth Muñoz and a proud father of five wonderful children, Jade, Noah, Javier II, Shiloh and Josiah.
Grayson School Director
I grew up near Athens, GA and graduated from Madison County High School in 1996. I attended Shorter College, then graduated and married my bride (Erin) in 2003. Together we have three kids; Rylan, Emalyn, and Aiden.
I am currently the Lead Chaplain for Grayson High School. I have been the Grayson Director of NG3 since January 2011. Prior to this, I was a student pastor at a local church for nearly four years.
Since I was 16, I knew that I would have a long “career” in counseling/mentoring students …I just didn’t know what that would look like. It’s what I’m passionate about, and it’s where I have the most experience. Being able to serve Grayson High School through NG3 is an incredible opportunity for me to do what I love. At the end of the day, I get to see students lives impacted and changed for the better.
At NG3, I’m very thankful that I get the opportunity to invest in the next generation.
I have been in full-time local church ministry for the past 18 years. I have served in various roles as an associate pastor at a large, thriving church in northern Indiana for the past 14 years. My wife, Rachael, and I were married in 2002. We have two beautiful daughters, Haley (9 years old) and Natalie (5 years old). What probably attracted me initially to NG3 was the opportunity to integrate three of my passions (Jesus, teenagers and athletics) into one opportunity. What probably sealed the deal for us as a couple though was getting to meet and know the NG3 staff better and realizing what a special team we had the opportunity to join. Really, this is a dream opportunity for me and my family and we can’t wait to get started!
Mill Creek School Director
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Ga with immediate family in Ohio, Missouri and North Carolina. I am a husband to one, a father of four, a son of two, and a brother to many…. I was involved in sports from a young age, playing baseball, basketball, football as well as cross country team in high school. I was a player and coach for Team Under Armor on the mens adult competitive softball circuit after college. I attended Truett-McConnell College before transferring to Gwinnett Tech to work on my degree in Sports Management. I have worked in the sporting arena as community relations for both the Atlanta Braves and the Atlanta Vision. I used to run my own sports training company as well as baseball instructor and coach at Jack City Sports Center and Mountain View Athletic Association. I have many years of experience serving charities and ministries with such roles as Legislative Liaison for NAAF, Charity Sports Director for SPN, Mens Leader at Victory-Hamilton Mill, and Board Member for Leadership Johns Creek. I am excited about the opportunity to combine my passion with sports and ministry while pouring into the next generation and the community where I work, live and play.
