Church Leadership

Lead Pastor – Amanda Rohrer

I am a follower of Jesus! If there is one thing that defines me, it is the love Jesus has for me. But I am also a wife, mother, and pastor—in that order. Raising teenagers has taught me a lot about the need for community and the key elements needed for life transformation. I am grateful for all that Hannah, Isaiah, and Avery have taught me.

My biggest passion is the local church. To see her experience freedom and purpose so that the world may know that the Kingdom of God is here! My biggest advocate in this audacious endeavor is the man I have been in love with for 17 years. By far, Doug has been the one who has taught me that transparency, authenticity and vulnerability are possible when the love of Christ is present in relationships. To him I am forever grateful.
