Clergy

Senior Minister

Reverend Dr. John F. Ross

Sheila and I have been married 29 years and have enjoyed a full, fast-paced home with our four children: Brady (24), Maddy (21), Anne Marie (18), and Logan (16)

My passion is for people... to see God in others and allow them to see God through me. I believe that if we can build relationships, there’s nothing we can’t do.

I went to Miami University for my undergraduate, The Methodist Theological School of Ohio for my Masters program; then I received my Doctorate of Ministry from Chicago Theological Seminary.

I’m a 7 on the enneagram, of course! Doesn’t everyone want to be a 7! 🙂

My strengths are communication, positivity, significance, woo (winning others over), and focus.

In most seasons you will find me outside no matter how cold it gets. I love hockey, fishing, movies, and YARDWORK!

Minister of Congregational Life and Mission

Reverend Danielle Hample Jones

Brian and I have been married for almost 15 years. We met doing mission mission work while we were both in seminary. Brian is the Executive Director of Innove Studios and the curator of content for nerdsonearth.com. We have two daughters, Campbell and Charlotte and together we like to bike, dance, laugh and eat ice cream.

My passion in ministry is making space for people to grow in community and grow in their relationships with God. I believe digging deeper into who we are, what has shaped us, and God’s deep love for us sets us free to serve the world.

I went to Iowa State University where I studied Sociology and Psychology and earned a Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena,CA.

I am a 3 on the Enneagram which means on my good days I will tell you the truth and on my bad days I will tell you what you want to hear.

I cannot remember my strengths but I know they include Activator, Maximizer, Woo, and I can’t remember the rest. I must have decided those are my favorites.
