Daren Penwell

Lead Pastor

Hey, sorry about the cheesy photo, but I do have more hair than Jason. That's how you can tells us apart. My passion for ministry started at a young age. Growing up in a preacher’s home and the grandson of missionaries, I have spent my whole life in the church. As a result, I am passionate for the church, the Family of God. I love when people understand the grace of a loving Father or when they grasp a deep concept for the very first time. I have a teaching pastor’s heart. That is, I don't just want people to “go to Heaven when they die.” I want them to grow deeply in a relationship with God that causes them to make a difference in the world around them. My wife, Lisa, and I have two beautiful girls (Brittany and Madison), a son-in-law (Josh), a dog (Sage; he’s a beast!), and a cat (Pepper). I love Notre Dame football and reading theological and biblical study books (I know…ugh!). I also love a beautifully manicured lawn, perennials and long walks on the beach. Sorry, felt obliged to throw that last one in.

Lisa Penwell

Children's Minister

My name is Lisa Penwell and I serve as the kindergarten through 4th grade children's Minister. Children's Ministry has been a part of my life for 20 years! That's a long time but I get the joy of jumping around, singing, playing games, playing with play dough and many other cool kid stuff. The best part about working with children is getting to watch them grasp the Good News! I love experiencing with them as they hear the message and learn of God's love and then decide they want to live their lives for Him. That is awesome! It never gets old!
