Craig joined the team in 2011. He ensures that our church achieves our mission and vision. He also oversees the staff, ministries, budget, and provides weekly preaching. When Craig is not leading our staff and preaching, you will likely find him on the golf course, trying out a new restaurant, walking his two springer spaniels.
Sara has worked here since 1999. She is responsible for the finances, HR, and overseeing the facility. When she is not in the office, you can find her hanging out with her family and friends and serving with the Missionary Care Ministry Team.
Carrie joined the staff in the fall of 2014. She feels blessed to be able to say that she loves her job as well as her co-workers. Carrie’s varied duties as Executive Assistant mean that no day is the same! She helps oversee Community Groups, Ministry Teams as well as Pastor Craig’s busy schedule and calendar. She also enjoys planning and executing church events.
Beyond church, Carrie takes joy in reading, travel planning, perusing the mall and cooking. She is inspired by God’s glorious world of nature and sunshine.
After a sojourn through Chicago and West Michigan, Sam, a born and raised Minnesotan, returned to the great north in 2015 to serve as the Student Ministries Pastor here at MGCC.
The mission of the Student Ministries is to “cultivate a community of students who are passionate about Jesus and passionate about one another”. Sam’s favorite thing about his job is the adventures that he gets to participate in with the youth.
His prayer is that after graduation, every student would go to their next stage in life believing that God loves them and has a purpose for their life.
