Pastor Kendall Harger

I love my family! Juli and I have been married for 32  years. She is my bride and best friend.  If I were asked the question today, “Do you…”,  I would still say I do!! God has blessed us with three boys, Luke (Trina), Christian (Nicola), and Alex. I am excited to watch as God leads them through life.

In my free time I like to: Kayak, Hike, or Bike

Scripture life verse: Psalm 16:8 NIV   “I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”

Nobody knows that I: love Oreo Cookies especially with a glass of milk.

The most incredible thing about our church is: The love the people have for each other and for people in the community which is prompted by their great love for God.

Nothing brings more joy to my heart than: hearing that someone is moving closer to Christ in their spiritual walk. That they are engaging God by reading His Word and following His lead.

I feel called by God to: Preach the Word in such a way that people hear it, understand it, and can apply it to their lives. I also feel called to help people navigate life by putting Christ in control of their lives.

Juli Harger Director of Spiritual Growth

Our family is what I call a “boy family.” I would be the one lone resident female; I have to plan my emotional meltdowns to fit their schedule J.  I adore my three…no,…my four boys: Lucas, Christian, Alex, and the one I married – Kendall. All are in there 20’s – except the one I married. When we are together we are loud, a bit obnoxious, and we laugh a lot.

I wish I could figure out: a way for all people to find love, contentment, and purpose in their life.

In my free time I like to: walk/hike outdoors, bicycle, kayak, read.

I wish I had time to:  travel to far away places on this beautiful earth (a bit of money would help too).

Scripture life verse:  Had to go with both of these….

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil. Proverbs 3:5-7

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Ephesians 3:18-19

Nobody knows that I: Well, now, if I revealed what nobody knows…everybody would know, and it would no longer be something nobody knows – so I plead the fifth.

My proudest moment: Any moment I see my children laugh, create, and love God.

The most incredible thing about our church is: The way we love! It’s genuine, generous, without judging, and sacrificial.

I am happiest when:

Nothing brings more joy to my heart than: Watching and/or being a part of someone else’s spiritual movement toward God.

I feel called by God to: Follow Him

I am most excited about: Grandbabies?!?

If I could invite two people to dinner: living, dead, or fictional I would invite… Jesus in skin and Mary the mother of Jesus.

My walk with Christ has taught me… He is bigger and better than I ever dreamed and He loves me deeper and harder than I thought possible (or even comprehend).
