John Drenth is our sound guy! He has a heart for worship and makes us all sound good. John is an integral part of our team here, and you’ll see him on Sunday mornings keeping us all on track so we can share Jesus with the world.
Mary Lechowicz has attended the church since 2003 and has been actively involved with children most of her life and has been our Children’s Pastor since 2021. Mary is dearly loved as she nurtures and cares for the children so beautifully. The atmosphere in the classrooms is fun, creative, and full of Jesus’ love!
