Sharing the Word

Executive Director

Taylor Teel

“I grew up in a household of faith but came to know the Lord as an 11 year old when the Lord revealed the grip sin had on me and that no matter what, I could not rescue myself from my sin. It was then that I confessed my sin, surrendered my life to Jesus. Two of my favorite verses are 1 John 1:9 and Colossians 1:13.”

Director of Development

“I am a broken and wretched sinner, saved by the grace of God. Jesus died on the cross, suffering in my place and reconciling me to the Father. I came to have faith that this was true at around 9 years old. This truth was taught to me by my two loving parents over the course of my life.”

Director of Operations

Eli Wolf

“Grew up in church and in a family that loved me well and taught me who God was and how to love others well also. It wasn’t until college that the Lord really revealed my sin to me in order for me to understand how much I needed Him. Recently God has been teaching me the importance of community, discipleship, and sharing your faith.”
