Leadership

Get to know some of our leaders a little better …

Doug Ellis

Lead Pastor
Little known fact about you?

There's a stark contrast to the side of me that craves football, baseball, and sci-fi thrillers. I also have an artistic side. If you get to know me, you'll discover that I enjoy doing pottery (ceramic work), and I absolutely love musicals (movies or live theater). But, perhaps least known, I also enjoy watching ballet.

What is one thing you will never do again?

Forget my anniversary. I forgot it once, and that was terribly embarrassing. But, our anniversary is 9/11 ... so ... yeah ... not forgetting.

What makes you laugh the most?

Slapstick and dumb humor ... and the dumber the funnier. So, that would be old stuff like Jerry Lewis and Monty Python, and newer stuff with Will Ferrell or Ben Stiller.

If you could share a meal with any 4 individuals, living or dead, who would they be?

(I'm skipping over Jesus as the obvious answer, and picking four others). John from the Bible, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, George Muller, and Robin Williams. Robin would probably dominate the conversation.

Joe Mettimano

Pastor

Director, Central Union Mission
Little known fact about you?

I am a Kentucky Colonel. Kentucky Colonel is the highest title of honor bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Commissions are given by the governor in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments, contributions to Kentucky society, remarkable deeds, and outstanding service to a community, state, or the nation. (Fun Fact….I’m not even from Kentucky!)

What makes you laugh the most?

Home Improvement and Last Man Standing (TV Shows)

If you could share a meal with any 4 individuals, living or dead, who would they be?

Jesus, Moses, Francis Chan and Will Ferrell (to lighten it up)

If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?

Spend the entire day with my wife and daughter doing outdoor activities (Ride a horse around Yellowstone National Park, fly fishing, nature hikes)

Drew Stridiron

Worship Leader

Christian Rap Artist & Producer
Little known fact about you?

I enjoy lights, fire, and fireworks.

If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?

To go to a Caribbean beach.

If you could join any past or current musical group, which would you choose?

The Roots simply because there are not any good or popular hip hop bands like theirs. It would be a great experience!

What do you do to keep fit?

Working out at the gym. Playing basketball and tennis.
