Pastor Bill Ness, Associate Pastor
Pastor Bill has devoted his life to serving the Lord with a desire to see churches operate in a healthy-biblical model and to help those in the congregation to come to their full potential in living a faith-filled life. He has served several churches in the positions of Associate and Senior Pastor and has been actively involved in administration and music ministry. Pastor Bill and Laurie enjoy spending time with family, camping and playing music together.
2 Timothy 1:9[He]saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began.


Pastor Brandon Monson, Youth Pastor
Pastor Brandon has a huge heart for helping students and young adults come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior. He loves using his enthusiasm and drive to evangelize for the gospel through acting as the Youth Pastor, leading one of the worship teams, serving on the deacon board, and helping with the church’s social media and children’s church. Brandon previously served elsewhere as a Children’s Pastor and Worship Leader and is a licensed pastor with Converge North Central as of 2020. 
His wife Leah has a passion for ministry too, as she partners with him on the Sunday worship team and in many youth activities. They also have a one year old girl Maisy and are active in respite foster care. Their life verse comes from Micah 6:8 NJKV: “He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?”
