Pastor
Dale “Limey” Tweit
Worship Pastor
Jason Kelley
Women’s Ministry Pastor
Suzanna Kelley
“Limey” as he is affectionately known, is often called, “a man’s man”. A true evangelist, he’ll talk to anyone, anywhere, anytime. He lives from a heart of deep gratitude for all that God has done. This man is boldly unashamed of the gospel and a loving shepherd of God’s people.  He’s famous in these parts for showering people with “You’re loved!”.
Jason is a passionate worshiper and a legend during “testimony time”. He also serves as our Worship Pastor. His favorite aspect of Father is a continual revealing of His loving kindness toward us. Jason is a “healing of the broken-hearted” type of guy.  For Jason, Kingdom is about family and he wants to see everyone come home. His message is, “You are loved and wanted”.
Suzanna hates the burden and hypocrisy that religion brings. Her gentle spirit accompanied by her strong gift of prophetic spoken word, describes the delight of breakthrough upon discovering the liberty which can only be found through intimacy with Father.  “Suz” as she is often called, is all about freedom, transparency, restoration, mercy and hope. Her battle cry though is MERCY. This lady is deep, funny and radically loves Jesus.
Children’s Pastor
Tracey Oates

julie Buria

Julie carries the spirit of the evangelist. You’ll find her telling every one she meets about the good news of Jesus Christ. She also happens to be our General Administrator.

NewVal
Margie Larson
Tyler Nylund
Valerie Jordan
Never without a smile on her face, Margie has a gift of, “welcome” and a “can do!” attitude. She is up for whichever way God wants to use her in Kingdom. She is a true caregiver, with a gift for loving people. Margie helps them believe just how valuable they are by exemplifying the love and service of Christ.
This guy is something else. Whether Evangelism, Intercession, Worship. Tyler is the, “Real McCoy” and has such a heart for EVERYONE.  For Tyler, Christianity is truly lifestyle.  He sees each person as a beloved vessel, waiting to be filled with hope, identity and Father’s love. He is generous with his heart and his time, loving expectantly and selflessly.
Valerie takes after her, “Father” in her heart for righteousness and justice. Her spirit soars in intercession for the lost, hurting and broken as she yearns to see the wrongs made right.  Valerie is also a true servant and looks after the Body of Expectancy with excellence and diligence. Thank you Lord for Valerie.
Jarrett schottmuller
Kylie Schottmuller
Peter Scott
Jarrett’s tender heart is the first thing you notice, that and his awesome drumming. In his own words, he loves his family and is doing his best to raise his children to know Jesus intimately and become a follower, not a fan. He chooses to be a demonstration of Father’s kindness, longing for all to be drawn in by His love. Jarrett is always ready to encourage the one in front of him.
Genuine, hospitable,  kind and wise are words that would describe Kylie. This wife and mother of 4 is an example of faithfulness to God, family and prayer. In addition to her deep commitment to intercession, she is a worshiper and loves mentoring young couples with her husband Jarrett.
Exuberant is the word. This guy is hard after Jesus Christ and lets it be known. Peter is the guy you want to run into when you need a reminder that Jesus wins and you do too when you know and believe in Him! During the week he is an effective and powerful facilitator and intercessor. Sunday mornings you’ll find him giving his all on the worship team. Sunup to sundown Peter is God’s man bringing transformation everywhere he goes through the love and Truth of Jesus Christ.
David Stimac
 
Crystal Aubin
“Good people” and “salt of the earth” describes David. Don’t let his gentle demeanor fool you though, like his biblical namesake, David, is a man after God’s own heart, whether worshiping with guitar or slaying lions with the sword of the word. His commitment is to the Lord, His house and His people. David’s faithfulness and kindness cause him to shine bringing glory to his Heavenly Father.
This lady carries the fire. She is electric in spirit and personality. Crystal’s zeal generates from a strong love of her Lord and a passion for seeing those who are bound delivered. She lives out Galatians 5:1, “It’s for freedom sake that we’ve been set free!” When she is not rending the heavens in intercession, you’ll find her active with her husband and six children.
