Meet Our Pastor
Pastor John M. Bills has been our Pastor since December, 2012. Pastor John has over 30 years of ministry experience, including pastoring churches in both Missouri and Alaska. He has also served as a Youth Minister, Education Minister and Associate Pastor, as well as a teacher in Christian Schools. Pastor John has a deep love for the Word of God and a passion for personal discipleship.
Like many of us, Pastor John has walked through times of personal struggles, broken relationships, and has experienced critical and hurtful people. He is just another example of God choosing to use the broken people of this world as a vessel of His glory. Pastor John knows that he is flawed and far from perfect, and will often use personal examples (past and present) to show how God's love, mercy, grace and forgiveness changes lives.
Pastor John, and his wife Cindy, are the proud parents of five children: Ian (Seattle), Tory and her husband Justin (North Pole), Bryan (Colorado), LeAnne (Fairbanks), and Katie (North Pole) as well as being very proud grandparents of the two most adorable children ever! However, the unofficial head of their house is Opie, their pit-bull/boxer!
Pastor John loves football. He is a rabid and loyal Kansas City Chiefs fans and longs for the day when they are once again a legitimate Super Bowl contender. He believes that God has created us all with unique talents and abilities that can be used for God's glory. And just like the rest of us, his personal preferences and leisure activities run eclectic from the television shows he watches to the books he reads and the music he listens to. Yes, he even enjoys listening to 70's/80's rock bands like Journey and Kiss. His passion is discipleship and so he will reach most anything to do with church history and theology.
We invite you to get to know our Pastor. We think that you will find in him a man seeking the heart and guidance of God. We also think that you will discover a man who will stand beside you and yet who will also challenge you to become the person that God has created you to be.
