Missions & Administration
Todd and his family first experienced God's body when a family from FCC invited them to a worship service in the fall of 2002. That gentleman walked through the Gospel with Todd, consistently prayed for his family and eventually baptized him in the summer of 2004!
Todd is blessed to be married to Haley (June 1998) who he met in high school in New Richmond. Haley grew up with a small family, Todd grew up with a large family and they are getting closer and closer to that size as they celebrated the adoption of their daughter (December 2012).
Tucker (September 2000), Laney (April 2002), Shelby (September 2005) and Amari (October 2006) bring every emotion possible to their house each day...fortunately, it is mostly joy!
Since a short-term mission trip to Guatemala in 2007, Todd's love for God's work outside of the walls of the building has grown immensely. He has been fortunate to serve both locally and internationally, but his heart really starts racing when he sees the body wanting to hit the mission field and the opportunity to help prepare them for that work! God is present and God is good — all the time!
Heidi and her husband, Joel, have been attending Faith since 2004. They have two adult children — Heather and Ben. They have twin grandchildren (December 2014) — Quinn and Isaac. Joel and Heidi were married in 1987 and have grown stronger each year in their love for each other and Christ. Early in their marriage, Joel and Heidi were youth leaders at their local church and have grown more in their roles at Faith Community over the past 14 years. Heidi's past roles have been in youth ministry, children's ministry, music team and prison ministry.
You'll find Heidi in the church office during the week and most Sunday mornings buzzing around helping our ministry leaders or church family with her admin skills.

Chuck and Melissa started attending church and getting involved with different ministries along the way and now their life reflects a missional movement that helps advance the Gospel of Christ. The Olson's help lead the charge in missions such as Faith Works and God's Guys. These mission fields help grow people closer to God.
