Spring Green Community Church Elders
Pastor Kendall Harger
I am pastor of Spring Green Community Church. My wife Juli and I moved here in January 2011 from Michigan to serve SGCC and the River Valley area. We love it here! I count it a privilege to come alongside people and help them navigate life, especially when it offers them unforeseen challenges, and to encourage others as they grow in their relationship with God. I love Jesus, playing classical guitar, biking, kayaking, and hiking.
My wife Mary and I live in the hills between Spring Green and Dodgeville, WI. We are both retired – me from teaching and Mary from nursing. We both enjoy spending time with our grown children, gardening, hiking, and camping. I love to do puzzles, watch sports, and tinker around the homestead. I have a heart for those going through difficult times and love to help in any way I can.
My wife Ann and I live just outside of Spring Green, close enough to ride my bik on nice summer days. I am a retired DNR forest ranger, and enjoyed the leadership opportunities my work with the DNR offered. Ann is a retired teacher of English and literature. Together, we have two daughters and two sons. Traveling to visit them and their families and spending time with my three grandkids in Florida are my greatest joys. I love Jesus and so appreciate the sacrifice He made. I enjoy reading and studying God's word, and serving at Spring Green Community Church. I’m thankful for God's grace in bringing me to an understanding of who He is and what He has done for me, personally, and for showing me the sacrificial nature of genuine love. He has chosen to bless me very richly.
I live in the hills just outside of Plain, WI with my wife Kathy. I am part owner of a business that involves large animal medicine. When I’m not outside working, you will find me outside playing. I love the outdoors, hunting, cutting wood, and watching the trees grow. I am excited to be a part of Spring Green Community Church; to see it growing, increasing in unity, compassion for others, and loving one another.
I live in the hills just outside of Dodgeville, WI. I am part owner of a business involving large animal medicine. I love reading (especially classical Christian writers), writing, and imagining. I have a heart for those dealing with life’s greatest challenges such as human trafficking and those around the world who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ.
My wife Jan and I live in the Arena area and operate the family farm. We have five children whom we’ve raised in the family farmhouse which is over 100 years old! I love life on the farm (most of the time) and being a part of Spring Green Community Church. God is good! It is an honor for me to be part of our church leadership and a privilege to serve you.
My wife Marcia and I live between Spring Green and Arena. We have lived in this area our whole lives. I'm a self-employed residential painter, and Marcia is a River Valley school nurse. I count it as a privilege and a great responsibility to serve you as an elder.
After retiring from the design and marketing company I owned and managed, my wife Betty and I moved here from the Chicago area. There we were active members of Calvary Memorial Church in Oak Park, IL for over 30 years. I came to faith at around the age of 10 and was baptized in my mid-teens. I am spiritually gifted in the areas of service, administration, and giving. In previous churches, I served as elder, Sunday school teacher, and youth leader. My wife and I serve here as growth group leaders and in various other capacities.
