Our Pastors

Pastor Paul Moldenhauer - Senior Pastor

Storefront windows let you peek into a shop to see what is inside. Well, if you’re interested, let me give you a peek into what’s inside me. What you’ll see is that Jesus is my greatest treasure. What He has done for me is way more than I’ll ever deserve; and way more than I can ever repay. So, I value Jesus more than anything. He’s so good that I long to be a “man after God’s own heart.” Because of that, I also desire to be a “God-run” person who increasingly lives the better, adventure-filled life shared in His book, the Bible. Finally, my life prayer is that He would use me however He desires so that as many people as possible might receive this treasure of Jesus. That’s what’s inside me. On the outside, there a husband of 45 years, a father of five, a grandfather of twelve (and still counting), a sports fan,…and a guy who gets to do what he loves: be a pastor (and they even pay me for it ☺).

Pastor Michael Hansen - Associate Pastor

Never in my wildest dreams had I ever imagined becoming a pastor when I was growing up. I mean, who does that? I spent the majority of my childhood growing up in Germany, where I knew about God, but never really had a sense of who He was or what He did. I never went to church either. But when we moved back to the United States, God led our family to start attending my mother’s childhood church home. It was during that time that I started to learn how the great God of the universe loves someone as small as me and that He even died on the cross so that I can have forgiveness and eternal life in Him. It was truly life changing — so much so that God placed on my heart this immense desire to share the Good News of His salvation with everyone, all the time. And so I found out that the kind person who becomes a pastor is a person just like me. Someone who is sinful, broken, and struggling. But, lucky me, that is the exact kind of person that Jesus died for.
    There are a few areas of ministry I am especially passionate about. The first is reaching those who don’t know Jesus, since I used to be one of them. Second is caring for people in times of need through pastoral visitation and counseling. Third is teaching. Whether it’s confirmation, Bible study, or a new member class, I am always (almost too) excited to share the amazing things God has done in a way that people can understand, appreciate, and use to grow in their faith and life!
    Though my life has not been, and still is not, perfect, God has always blessed me beyond measure. One of the most obvious ways He does so today is through my wife, Hannah, who shows me what it’s like to be like Jesus every day and whose support makes my ministry possible at all. We also have a golden retriever named Denver. Though she is scared of absolutely everything (appliances, boxes, electric poles) we wouldn’t trade her for the world!
    Since you are reading this bio, I hope I get to meet you soon or get to know you even better. Please never hesitate to introduce yourself or reach out to me. I am excited already! Click HERE to email Pastor Michael.

Pastor Austin Wellhousen - Associate Pastor

Although I’ve been a Christian my entire life, it wasn’t until I was in high school when I realized how valuable and priceless God’s love for me is. I then felt called to be a pastor and pursued pastoral ministry throughout college and seminary. The more I lived and learned, the more God opened my eyes to how much more the world makes sense through Jesus Christ. I want all people to know how complete and meaningful their lives are when lived through the Gospel. On a personal side, I love running, watching football, reading, drinking coffee, and taking walks with my wife, son, and dog.
