  • Lead Minister, Brian Gilroy

    Brian provides overall leadership for the staff and the church and works alongside the elders to provide vision and direction. Brian is a Johnson Bible College (Johnson University), Olivet University, and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary graduate. He has been on staff since 2009, and has been the lead minister since 2014. Brian is married to Becky who grew up in Columbus. They have two wonderful children, Noah and RuthAnne. Brian enjoys spending time with his family, reading books of all kinds, listening to all kinds of music, working outside, and participating in the life of the church. Brian relaxes by spending time with his wife and kids, especially on vacations (we are trying to visit as many states in America as possible!), by reading multiple books at the same time, and by watching sports (go Tarheels and Chicago Cubs!)

  • interim Youth Minister, Josiah Been

    Josiah comes from a family of 5 children. He has an older sister, two younger brothers, and a younger sister. His parents are missionaries so that really shaped where and how he grew up. When he was 4 years old (2005) his family moved to Mozambique, Africa. They lived there until 2014, when we moved to Lisbon, Portugal. His family is still working there, but he moved to Knoxville, TN in January of 2021 to study Preaching and Student Ministry at Johnson University. 

    He is a people person, so he loves spending time with his wife, Cara, and friends. He loves to go fishing, bowling, to the beach (when he is back home), and on motorcycle rides.

  • Office Manager/Financial Director, Kathy Murdock

    Kathy grew up here in Columbus. She and her husband, Andy, have two married children and one grandchild. Kathy enjoys spending time with her grandbaby, reading, spending time with her grandbaby, gardening, spending time with her grandbaby, baking, and spending time with her grandbaby. ;)

  • Administrative Ministry Assistant, Melissa White

    Melissa grew up in the great state of Missouri. She is always ready for a little adventure. She met her husband, Mark, at Ozark Christian College. Together they like to take "silly selfies" and spoil their standard poodle, Spock. They have adult children, Allie and Timon (& Lindsey).
