Rick Ebbers

pastor & chief bottle washer

Rick and Gwen moved here in 1999 to start a church for people trying to figure out the whole “Jesus” thing. “We wanted to create a community where people felt safe asking hard questions about God. If Jesus is the truth, he should be able to stand up to our deepest and hardest questions – right?” Rick graduated from Calvin Theological Seminary and is ordained in the Christian Reformed Church but we only let him use his "Reverend" title for weddings and when sending letters to college roommates.   Rick has been married to Gwen since 1990 and they have 2 marvelous and (mostly) un-annoying kids, Austin and Paige.

Alysia Miller

dangley weaver (administrator) 

Alysia is our “dangly weaver!” Yep, real job title! Other people might call her role an “admin" but it’s so much more than that!  She takes all the “dangly” stuff that needs to get “woven together” to keep this community organized and humming along. When you meet her, just know that behind that quiet and sweet demeanor lies a gently sarcastic bent that is a thing of beauty!
