Jo Dealy 

Jo has an amazing ministry among our women.  It is called "Flourish", and aims to sow seeds of love and joy in the lives of women everywhere.

Over the last several years, Jo has built the women's ministry with a vision to reach, encourage, inspire, nurture, and release women of all generations into their God given purpose... That they may know how long, deep & wide is the love of their God and shine this for all to see.  Colossians: 2-3

 She is married to Pete, and together they have raised a family of wonderful now-adult children.

Scott James 

Scott has an infectious smile, and kids love to talk to him and share their hearts with him.  He and his wife have been an amazing part of our children's ministry for several years.  Currently, he is studying at Bible College, along with raising a young family and building a new house!

Scott has led the vision to completely renovate our children's areas, because he believes kids deserve the very best! We are excited to have him and his family with us.
