Pastor Brian Moore – We are pleased to introduce Brian and Lori.  Having recently served a church in TX, their roots are in IL and happy God called them closer to home.  Brian has been in ministry since 1998 when he got serious about serving Christ by serving others, and is always open to new ways to do ministry and fellowship.  Visitation and kid connections are a priority for both of them, they love Christ-centered worship, and just having fun in general.  Pastor Brian has experience in and is anxious to be active in the community through sub-teaching, coaching, emergency services, and volunteer organizations.  Lori is passionate about women’s ministry and is an avid quilter.  Together the couple has taken six trips to Romania with the mission called Another Child Foundation. 
Pastor Brian and Lori can’t wait to meet you!  
Layleader Melvin Adrian – Melvin is a dedicated member of our church, a devoted family man, trustee, and worker in our church. Supported by his wife, Dawn, he is not afraid to admit weaknesses we are all prone to as well as ask hard questions to deepen his faith. We anxiously anticipate his fresh direction for our church as we continue our pastoral search. “I know the plans He has for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future” (Jer 29:11).   As Jabez prayed (I Chron 4:10) may the Lord “bless him indeed, and enlarge our territory”.
Dawn Adrian does more than double duty as worship leader and outreach coordinator.  Dawn’s love for God spills over to her church family and many friends, and still finds time to volunteer in the community through food pantry ministry and school activities.  Dawn also regularly assists at the Family Life Center in Shelbyville. 
Nola Bresnan has a heart for worship with many years experience.  She loves the Word, and has been a speaker on her favorite topic, angels.  A dedicated prayer warrior, she is choir director and has sung in many groups, currently our own New Creation trio.
Kayla Gibson is growing in her faith, and a lover of old hymns and contemporary music.  As youth leader, she realizes children are a treasure and should be trained up in the ways of the Lord.  She makes learning fun and faith real.  Kayla is also responsible for preparing our weekly radio ministry.   Her Yorkie, SJ, is loved by everyone!
