Lead Pastor’s
Josh and Jill Merchant

In all simplicity, Jesus is the heartbeat of Josh and Jill, and you are their passion! Josh and Jill know that challenges in life are real and you need real answers in real time. Jesus has commissioned them both to help you discover the “real you” and face every challenge with real change. Josh and Jill are bringing a passion for people and years of diverse full-time vocational ministry experiences, complimented with a four-year Bachelor degree from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Church Business, Bible, Theology, and Counseling, with extended studies in Christian Leadership. They lead life along side their beautiful family of five children: Kylee, Aubrey, Abram, Gabriel, and Nolan, plus a pet kitten named Summer and a bunny rabbit named Peppermint Holly! They would both agree their ultimate goal as pastor’s is to see every person, “live as Jesus would say, abundantly!”
