Rodney Wilson is married to Montra Wilson and has four boys that keep them busy. Youth Ministry has always been Rodney’s passion and heart, which is why he chose to get a Bachelor’s degree in Youth Ministry from Southeastern College of the Assemblies of God. Since then he has volunteered at several churches and been involved with their youth programs whenever possible. Rodney has been with our church since December 2015.
Pastor Brian Voelpel's mission is to lead kids in to growing, healthy relationships with Jesus and to empower them to become missionaries in their homes and schools. He is from Baldwin, NY down on Long Island, and graduated with a B.A. in Biblical Studies with a minor in youth ministry from Northpoint Bible College. Since then, he has accumulated 4 years of experience in children's ministry. When Pastor Brian was a child, he struggled with low self esteem. As he grew up in the church, he learned to find his esteem in God's love. Now, Pastor Brian is called to teach kids that Jesus loves and values each of them more than they could have ever imagined.
