Pastor Drew is a graduate of Asbury University and an Ordained Minister in the Free Methodist Church and has served in 3 other congregations during the last 13 years. Heather is a vital part of the ministry and works along side her husband in worship, prayer, and small group ministry.

Their hearts desire is to see people in Jerseyville and surrounding areas come to love Jesus Christ and to become His disciples.
