Shepherds & Deacons


We have three Elders-Roger Shipton, Tom Krause, and Dennis Oman. These men exemplify the qualifications for overseers that we have in 1 Timothy chapter 3. They love God and they love the church.

Acts 20:28

“Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.


-Rob Ellsworth. Rob is a man with a servant’s heart. He is married to Deborah and they have three kids: Gradyn, Justin, and Kaelin.

-Craig Smith. Craig is a man of God who loves the church and serving the church. He is married to Colette Perryman Smith and they have one daughter named Rosie.

John 12:26 – If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serves me, him will [my] Father honor.
