Doug and Peggy love God, love people, and love life…The last 10+ years has been the greatest adventure of their lives as they have watched God grow The Waters Church from a dozen people and a trailer of equipment into what it has become today! God really has done immeasurably above and beyond anything they could have ever imagined. They have 3 children, Abby, Nat, and Sophia. They also have a dog named Gus. They love hanging out with each other, their kids…friends and family!
Jeff and Abby have been a great addition to our staff. They have four daugthers Elisia, Lydia, Callie, and Avery. They both have a passion to see God bring hope to common, everyday people like themselves.
Rachel joined The Waters team in 2008. In 2015, she married the man of her dreams, adding Nick to the team! Rachel and Nick have a heart to develop and connect ministries throughout the church all in an attempt to help people know Christ and grow in their faith. Whether this is kids, students, life groups, serving roles, leadership teams or beyond– they want to be intentional to create environments and strategies for God to work and transform lives in our community and here at The Waters.
Sarah and her husband Dan love being a part of all that happens at The Waters, along with their kids (Cohl, Jessica, Patrick and David). Sarah’s background in early childhood education pairs with her love for sharing Christ with kids and their families in our Nursery/PreK program.
