Pastor Ron and Brenda Rands
Pastor Ron is the founder and Senior Pastor of Life Change Church with his wife, Brenda, who is over our Guest Ministry.
They started Life Change Church (originally Resurrection Life-Changing Ministries) in August of 1998 within a small trailer park, quickly moved to a Reeths-Puffer gymnasium, and then with renovations complete in November of 2000, they moved into the building we are in now! Since that time, this ministry has found favor in the Lord's eyes in so many different aspects. People's lives are being changed, ministries are expanding, and we are reaching out to the community more and more. We are truly excited to be able to serve the Lord in this beautiful area. Lord, we give You all of the glory!
Together, Pastor Ron and Brenda have been blessed with 7 children (including three adopted): Jessy, Samantha (Jake), Nina (John), Nate (Kelsey), Kendra (Dan), Austin (Taylor), and Nick; along with 12 grandchildren (soon to be 14).
Jonathan Scouten - Director of Production and First Touch
Jonathan oversees the production of our weekend services; including video, visual, sound, lights, and what makes a weekend predictably great. He also leads the first touch guest ministry along with various aspects of our communications and media, the building maintenance, I.T., and finances of the church.
Rita Endres - Director of Assimilation
Rita is the one who helps you find out what your next step is at Life Change. As the director of Assimilation, she will most likely be the one to show you how you can get involved to grow in your relationship with Christ and others through ministries, events and small groups. She is also the office manager and Pastor’s assistant.
Jessica Harper - Office Receptionist and Special Events Coordinator
Jessica oversees the flow of the office here at Life Change Church. She manages any updates that need to happen for each weekend. Jessica also manages the website and building use for weddings, funerals, etc.
Cheryl Eyestone - EPiC Kids Ministry Director
Cheryl oversees all aspects of the EPiC Kids program, and she also organizes the curriculum, coordinates events, and manages the budget for the ministry. Driven by a passion for helping children to Encounter Power in Christ on a weekly basis, Cheryl not only devotes herself to the children through mentorship and teaching, but also works diligently to equip and empower ministry volunteers, who will help raise the next generation of Christ-followers. Cheryl and her husband Travis have been serving in various capacities at Life Change Church since 2013, and their daughters have now also become active volunteers within the ministry.
Leah assists in the direction of the EPiC Kids Ministry. She organizes the curriculum in all of our classrooms and coordinates activities for Sunday and Midweek services. Leah dives right in when she has the chance to love and reach children, not only here at Life Change Church, but around the world as well. She coordinated games and crafts for the 2018 Guatemala mission trip. In that role, she had the opportunity to set up a place for kids of remote villages to Encounter Power in Christ.

Jenna leads our Worship Team, including musicians and vocalists, to prepare for the Holy Spirit to work every weekend and create a life-changing experience. She also oversees our Outreach Ministry which works with local and global mission organizations and projects.
Rob Sorensen - Sound and Video
Rob oversees the Video and Sound part of our Production, which includes videoing and editing the weekend messages and creating the right sound mix for the Worship Team.
