John’s passion is to see all people fall in love with Christ.  He works to bring young people into community with God and His church.  He is married to Suzie and has two sons; Johnny and Seth. 

Chris enjoys equipping people for ministry. He teaches the historical and cultural background to Scripture so we can apply it to our lives in the way the author intended. Chris and his wife Cheri travel regularly to the land of the Bible where they lead study trips and work on archaeological digs. 

Matt and Beth specialize in loving people!  Their vision is for families to see their children experience the love of Christ and grow in Him.  Matt and Beth have four children, Caleb, Mikhaela, Isaiah and Isaac. 




Esta offers a friendly voice on the phone and a friendly smile in the office.  She is a hard worker with an understanding ear and heart.  She is a great fit in the office of FRIENDS church!
