Our Leaders

  • Jon Vugteveen, LEAD PASTOR

    Lori and I have been married for almost 30 years. It hasn't always been easy, but we're getting better at it. We have 2 adult children and 5 grandkids. We love camping and other outdoor activities. I love aquariums and sports. 

    I enjoy people and engaging in ‘life’ discussions. My main passion in life, is to see new things and new life erupt into beauty. I love to see people excited and happy as they work together to accomplish what God calls us towards. 

    I love seeing God work in the lives of people, some of whom just don’t know it's happening yet. I love to help people better themselves and others in their lives as they realize God's desire and experience God in a real and personal way.

  • Eric Scholtens, worship pastor

    God loves to use people who don't deserve it. Because of this, I've had the privilege of leading worship for almost twelve years. That journey has allowed me serve a huge variety of groups, ranging from just a few families to multi-campus mega-Churches. My job is to point out who God is and what He's done, and create a space where people of all ages and stages of faith can hear the "still small voice" of the Holy Spirit calling them to worship. 

    My beautiful wife Sam and I have been married since 2012, and we have one little boy named Jude. Sam loves sewing and organization, and Jude loves animals and water.

  • Austin Gentry, Youth pastor

    Sometimes I feel like my story is a long and boring one, but when I consider the grace of God in my life it is much more wonderful than words can express. 

    My wife Kristi and I have been married for 12 years and have three kids ages 10, 3, and 2. Yes, we’re busy, but that too was part of God’s plan. We love to share our story of infertility, adoption and overwhelming blessing and we would love to tell you about it some time! 

    We’ve been involved in 2 previous church plants and really enjoy the process of helping a new faith community reach into its own respective community and help others in their personal struggles and their spiritual journey.

    Kristi enjoys all things Disney, as do our children. Kitri enjoys American Girl dolls, reading and Harry Potter. Lyric is your typical princess-loving 3 year old, and Miles loves cars and trucks. I love to sing and play worship music and I love saltwater aquariums and the wonders of God’s creation in the underwater world.
