Our Founding Pastors
Archie & Sheila Neal
Life Church was established in December 1980 by Founding Pastors, Archie and Sheila Neal. They were both raised in homes where church was a major focus. They observed so many people who loved God, were full of potential, attended church faithfully, but continued to live defeated lives. They simply lacked the knowledge they needed to experience real life change in their marriages, parenting, and finances. This really bothered Archie and Sheila, so when Life Church began, their mission was to equip people to live successful Christian lives. For the past 39 years, they have been privileged to see that mission accomplished in the lives of many. While many things have changed over the years, Archie and Sheila’s passion for God, His house, His people, and their commitment to build a life-giving church remain. Archie and Sheila have been married 43 years, are blessed with 3 children, their spouses, 11 grandchildren, and continue to live active full lives, believing their best days are ahead.
Our Lead Pastors
Jon & Brittany Neal
Jon and Brittany are the lead pastors of Life Church. Life is full and exciting with their 3 children Max, Lyrik, and Jayda and their 2 furry children Esther and Sophie. Jon and Brittany have been married and in full-time ministry for 15 years. Building the local church is top priority in their lives, because they have experienced the transforming power of what it means to be planted in God’s House. God has done a work in their hearts, in their lives, and in their marriage and family and He continues to grow and stretch them for more and the “more” includes YOU. You have a story and you matter to God and He wants to move in your life. Despite your background, your beliefs, your circumstances, you matter to Him and He wants you to know how much you are loved and valued. Life Church is a place where you can meet Jesus and become everything He has called you to be. Jon and Brittany believe that God is raising up a generation to advance God’s Kingdom here on earth like never before, but they know they are standing on the shoulders of those that have gone before and paved the way. Life Church is a place that believes in all generations and values the wisdom and guidance of those that have gone before us. We are better together.
