Meet Our Team
LifePoint Church offers a dynamic ministry with programs and activities for all ages. While we have many volunteers, we are blessed by a dedicated and talented staff.
I always went to church but never truly surrendered all my life to Christ until I was 18 years old. Like a lot of us, life is like a roller coaster. There will always be ups and downs. But thru my journey, I know I never have to walk alone. God is so faithful. One of the biggest lessons I have learned is: I don’t have to earn God’s love. He loves me no matter what.
I’m a pretty big fan of Star Wars and dinosaurs. I team up with my wife, Jill, to raise our four kids (Teyla, Levi, Corban, and Quinn) and to look for ways to serve God, our church family, and the community around us. This passion for Jesus started the summer after eighth grade when he gave me life through an experience at Camp Joy El. Before that time, I was a pretty good kid, but I had some internal stuff going on (depression, hatred, loneliness) that was pretty deep for me. But that summer at camp, I felt Jesus ask me if I wanted to choose life with him or not, and by his grace I decided I did. I don’t think I expected a profound change, but in the months that followed I realized I felt like a different person. Depression turned to joy, hatred to love, and loneliness to connected relationships with my spiritual family and most importantly with Jesus. And He has been with me as my true source of Life no matter what happens!

In my free time I enjoy hiking, hunting, and video games. I grew up going to church with my grandma, but God never really meant anything to me at the time. I gave up my faith for a girl when I was in middle school which led to me become bitter towards God after we broke up. I was re-introduced to God in junior high when I realized that all of the beliefs I was trusting my life with weren't going to last. I became on fire for God and attended/served in youth up until now and have loved every minute of it! I’ve searched for ways to serve Him ever since which led me here to LᴉfePoint Church.
It was a Friday night in May 2006 in Pemba, Mozambique when I finally gave my life to Christ. Our team had been serving at on orphanage there all week doing various projects and sharing the Gospel with people. That night was different because we were worshiping with the very same people that we had shared with that week. When I looked around and saw those who the world would consider the poorest of poor worshipping God with their whole heart I felt my own heart begin to melt and everything that I had heard in church for years before this began making sense. It’s almost as if everything just clicked and at that moment I knew I had to give my life to Christ because right then it hit me how lost I was without Him. That was when I finally asked for forgiveness for all those years of being a fake Christian and living a lie. From that day on my life had a new meaning which was to live for Christ!

I grew up in a Christian household as the daughter of a pastor. I accepted Jesus at the age of 5. As I grew up, I began to become extremely distant from my family and struggled through my preteen years. I had stopped doing my devotions and was just going through the motions of Christianity. Then one night I was reading about Jesus' death on the cross and I felt the weight and impact that Jesus died for me specifically! That night I surrendered my entire life to Jesus. My relationship with my family was restored and I felt a calling to live for Him. I married my husband, Aaron, and we have four beautiful children! We came to LifePoint in 2019 and as soon as we walked in the doors I felt God's pull towards being a part of this ministry and church. I love seeing authentic love for Jesus and others and hearts passionate about reaching the lost! It has truly been an honor to serve alongside this church.

We went to the Methodist church as a family for as long as I can remember so I have been a Jesus follower for most of my life. Even though as a teenager I did skip Sunday School from time to time and went down to the local coffee house. My mother was a Sunday school teacher for over 20 years and taught Sunday School on the radio. This had a major impact on our family life as we grew. When I was 18 my mother passed away and I became angry with God. It was hard to understand why such a good person and such a young person had to die. I drifted away from the church for a couple of years. Eventually a wonderful woman entered our life as our stepmother, Ginny, and life returned to some normalcy again. Shortly afterwards I married my wife, Karen, and we started back to church at the 4th Street Church of the Brethren as a family. I can honestly say I was not completely “back”. I still had questions. Then we had our first son, Kevin, and when I held him for the first time, I understood unconditional love. It was like an epiphany, I understood how God loved me. We had two more sons and when our youngest son, Shaun, was baptized I was also baptized as a believer to renew my faith. Following in my mother’s footsteps I also taught Sunday School from the youngest age to the oldest age and even preached a sermon or two. I still consider myself a “newbie” Christian because there is so much I don’t know and am still learning.

I was fortunate and blessed to have a mother and father that believed in the importance of being a part of a church body. I gave my life to Jesus and was baptized at age 12, but as a young adult I fell away from regular church attendance and was satisfied with "having" Jesus on Sunday but living my life my own way the rest of the week. God used a church experience to make me realize I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself. I wanted to be all in for Jesus.

I was blessed to be a part of a Christian family, giving me the foundation of the Christian beliefs. At the age of 18 I made a public confession to accept Jesus as my personal Savior. My faith really began to flourish at the age of 25 when I had a believer's baptism. This was a tremendous turning point in my life. My journey with Jesus has been an incredible one. Following Jesus has taught me that everyday is a new journey, with new doors to walk through. Hallelujah!

I became a Jesus follower in the spring of 1950 at a church revival meeting. On the last night during the very last song and last verse of Just As I Am, Jesus said, “Come.” I said “Yes Lord! I’ll come.” That night God saved me. I was 13 years old. From 1950 until 1971 my relationship with God was kind of off and on, at times somewhat non-existent, but then things changed. In 1971 at a Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship meeting in Washington, DC there were two speakers that God used to change my life again. That Saturday evening, the Holy Spirit impressed upon me that Jesus wanted more of me, Much More of me. The following Sunday morning & evening, Pastor Russ Bexler, one of the speakers from the night before, was speaking at our church on the Power of the Holy Spirit. As part of his closing for that evening, he asked if anyone would like the power of the Holy Spirit to be released in their life. There were six who Pastor Russ prayed with that evening to have the Holy Spirt become active in our lives and to minister though us. God released that Power in my life that night and my walk with Jesus has not been the same since.

Growing up, I was not raised in a Christian home. My parents divorced when I was four and I spent my time between multiple homes. It was until I met my wife before I started to attend church. Though regularly attending, I was still not convicted much beyond attending.
