Ministry Team


Jack Matkin

Senior Pastor

Ponder anew what the almighty can do.

Pastor Jack's favorite line in a hymn has been an important guide for his understanding of following Christ and serving together as the church. God is still creating and invites us to imagine a world that is not limited by human abilities. Jack's passion is designing environments which invite, encourage,and empower persons to become who God designed them to be.

Jack and his wife Rhonda still have one of their sons in high school and are active in many school-related programs. The red jeep was a surprise birthday present from Rhonda, and Jack did everything to the jeep himself (except wire the winch). Email Pastor Jack


James Littleton

Associate Pastor

What excites Pastor James about being in the ministry is the opportunity to be an extension of God's love to all God's children. He is passionate about helping others realize their full potential and value in relevant and fun ways. His wife Christy and their family and closest friends are a source of great pride and love in his life.

Pastor James loves all things sports, traveling, classic movies, and spoiling his nieces and nephews. Word on the street is that he makes a pretty mean turkey and has a gobble that rivals all others. Email Pastor James
