Our Leaders

Ryals Profile PicSenior Pastor Tim & Amy Ryals

Tim and Amy started their lives on opposite sides of the country, she from North Carolina, he from California and then God decided that they needed to spend some time in the middle.

Tim and Amy have two children, Skylar 17 and Justis 12. They are excited to see God’s hand at work in Inwood, Lyon county and the surrounding area.

Tim and Amy take a very simple approach to ministry.

Be genuine, love people, let God do the rest.

Dr. Eugene and Beverly Ver Steeg38

Dr. Eugene and Beverly Ver Steeg are an integral part of the life of this church. As parents, grandparents, farmers and locals, they bring a home grown perspective into our approach to community based ministry.

Eugene, or “Doc” as he is more commonly referred to serves as our treasurer. His meticulous attention to detail and impeccable stewardship ensures that the funds received from your tithe and offering are managed in such a way that God is always honored.

It’s a rare day when you don’t find Bev down at Fellowship Village visiting the elderly, baking cookies for our Guest ministry or offering a word of encouragement to a young single mom. Bev serves on the praise team, is the treasurer for Oasis Women’s Ministry, greets our guests and loves our babies in the nursery.

Chuck & Jessica Van Roekel

Chuck and Jessica stay busy in life and in ministry. As homeschooling parents of four energetic kids, it’s never a dull moment in the Van Roekel home.

Chuck currently serves as the Secretary for the Board of Directors and as a Pathfinders leader on Sunday mornings.

Jessica is our Praise team leader. Following the direction of The Holy Spirit, she selects each weeks music and leads the rest of the team in practices. It is her hearts desire to usher worshippers into the presence of God.
