Josh Tanner

Lead Pastor

"Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. Don't be selfish; don't try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don't look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus has. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal's death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and have him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."- Philippians 2:1-11

Joni Tanner

Executive Pastor

"So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God and at the right time He will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God for He cares about you.
"
- 1 Peter 5:6-7

Robert Roehl

Executive Pastor

"When I had nothing, desperate and defeated, I cried out to the Lord and He heard me, bringing His miracle- deliverance when I needed it most. The angel of the Lord stooped down to listen as I prayed, encircling me, empowering me, and showing me how to escape. He will do this for everyone who fears God. Drink deeply of the pleasures of this God. Experience for yourself the joyous mercies He gives to all who turn to hide themselves in Him."- Psalms 34:6-8

Ginger Williams

Children's Pastor

"I love you, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold .... This God—his way is perfect;
the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?"
- Psalms 18:1-2 ; 30-31

Alex Wuerth

Youth Director

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."- Isaiah 40:28-31
