23Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, 24knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.

Colossians 3:23-24

Pastoral Team

Pastor Jeff Penner – Lead Pastor

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,”

1 Corinthians 15:3-4


“I have received the transforming message of the gospel and as my primary objective want to tell others the truth of the gospel which is found in the scriptures. The gospel is Jesus Christ, HIs life, death, resurrection, and ascension.”

Pastor Jeff and his wife Teri have been married since 2004 and have four children.. They enjoy fellowshipping with the saints more than anything.  Games are played often in their house, and if you visit you need to be prepared to be ribbed a little.

Pastor Randy Fast – Associate Pastor

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5

Pastor Randy’s goal is to trust God with all his heart as it says in Proverbs 3:5.  He has been married to Joyce since 2003 and they have 6 children.  Randy began serving as the Youth Pastor at the Bergthaler church on January 1, 2003 and moved to Associate Pastor in April 2022. He enjoys talking and praying with people.  Randy also likes to play tennis, hockey and badminton. Joyce says Randy has a dry sense of humor and he is OK with that.


Cindy Fast

As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth.

Job 19:25

Cindy is married to Justin since 2007 and they have 5 children.
She began working as secretary at GBMC in August of 2022. Born and raised in this church, she loves the opportunities she has to meet people and serve in this way.
