Pastor Alan is an ordained minister in the Missionary Church, currently employed by Interim Pastor Ministries (IPM). He is leading our church through a proven process to help support and strengthen our ministry during this intentional season of transition. Together, we are building a bridge from our previous pastor to the next full-time Senior Pastor with kingdom effectiveness and impact in view.

Pastor Alan is a Bethel University alum and served churches in Indiana, Michigan and Texas. He completed a successful secular career in nuclear power and higher education, but his passion is serving as a loving shepherd of God’s people and mentoring spiritual seekers.
