KYLE THOMSEN,

LEAD PASTOR

I knew I wanted to be a pastor by the time I finished junior high! I love using how God has wired me to help transform lives. Outside of my relationship with Jesus, my greatest joy is my wife, Kelly & two boys, Josiah & Noah. My favorite way to burn energy is to play racquetball & chase the kids! Fun fact: I am the Jr. High Chess Champion!

WILL DERRYBERRY,

WORSHIP PASTOR

Singer/Songwriter. Encouraging people and partnering with the community to create wins is a big passion of mine! People say that I am musical…not sure why! I’m just grateful that I get to use my gifts & talents for God, and to inspire & build up the community He has placed me in!

LAURIE KELLEY,

CHILDREN’S PASTOR

I love being a mom to my three grown kids and their spouses…and I adore being a Grammy to 5 (so far!)! Forever grateful to God for what He’s done in my life. He rescued me and then called me into kid’s ministry where I serve with amazing teams of people who love Jesus and His kids!

KEN BURKEY,

PASTOR OF CARE & COMPASSION

After pastoring a local church for 25 years, I decided to start a non-profit, Live58.org, because of my passion for helping the poor and underserved by advocating for them in Washington DC, churches and through writing & speaking. I am thrilled to be able to use my passion at Life CC to help those who need it most!

My greatest joy in life is spending time with our children & eight grandchildren! I am an ordained pastor through the Evangelical Covenant Church and have served in local ministry for 20 years.

SHELBY RENFELD,

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS & COMMUNICATIONS

I have been serving in local ministry since 1996 either on staff or in volunteer roles. I am married with two boys and we are passionate about drumline and all things “band”! My family is my greatest joy! I am somewhat of a perfectionist and love to get better all the time! The fastest way to my heart is Starbucks and tacos!
