IT TAKES MANY PEOPLE TO COORDINATE OUR LOCAL CHURCH, BUT HERE ARE a few of our leaders that serve our congregation and community with a Christ-centered heart and a love for the Kingdom!
Scott Fuller - Senior Pastor
pastor scott and his wife, crystal, have been a part of this local congregation since they were children. Their passion for Christ and this local church is the reason they have enjoyed serving God in ministry positions for over 2 decades, including children's ministries, youth and young adult ministries, youth worship, women's ministries, directors of children and youth ministries for the heartland region, and now as Senior Pastor. Their two sons, Drew and Jared, are oftentimes found serving alongside them.
They are enjoying living out their God-given dream of serving full-time in Christian ministry.

savannah howell - director of children's ministries
Beginning to come to this church with her family at 18-months old, Savannah's love for God and His people has grown with her. In her early teenage years, it was apparent that she had a passion for working with preschool-age and school-age children and teaching them about the Lord. She & her husband, Grant, love serving in ministry together.
Savannah oversees Sunday morning Foundations of Faith kid's service, Wednesday Kid's Bible Club, the church nursery, and directs our Vacation Bible School during the summertime. Grant and Savannah also serve as directors for our Kid's Camp in the summer.
