Keith has always been a preacher at heart. There is nothing more rewarding to him than seeing people respond to God's invitation to be in a personal relationship with Him. He’s got an amazing wife named Ragan, an incredible teenage daughter named Anna who loves to bake, participate in drama and still hang out with dad (on occasion) and an uber-creative 11 year old son named Amos who brings him great joy...especially when they have nerf wars together. In his free time he loves reading, going to movies with his wife and watching anything that has to do with the letters E-S-P-N.
Greg was born into this church framily in 1950, quickly learning the imperative and life purpose of Kingdom work.Following college, Greg joined the military where he balanced service to his nation with lay ministry to God's people and his community. Greg, and his bride Marta, have served the church together in both lay and ordained ministry for the last 45 years. His calling is to serve from the second chair to free the senior pastor to best expend his energies in areas where God has most greatly gifted him. Marta and Greg have two sons, Seth and Justin, who live on the west coast. In his spare time, Greg enjoys fix it projects, the outdoors camping and pursuing gobblers and bucks each spring and fall.
