Our Staff

We'd like for you to get to know us a little more. Allow us to introduce a few people who run the show.

Chad Gibbons

Lead Pastor

Crystal Gibbons

Worship Leader
I've been married to Pastor Chad for 19 years and we have two amazing teenagers, Alaina and Carson. I grew up in the Nazarene church as a pastor’s daughter and I started leading worship when I was still in high school. It's my honor to lead our church into worship each week with an amazing team of musicians!

Lisa Pelcher

Office Manager
I married my husband Bob in 1991 and we currently have two super fun fur-babies named Tyler and Jake. I came to a relationship with Christ late in my life, but God has since taken me on an incredible journey to become an ordained Nazarene pastor. I am privileged and blessed to be the office manager at a church that is intentional about meeting people where they are with love and compassion!

Marla Doepker

Children's Director
My name is Marla Doepker. I am the Director of Children’s Ministry at CPC. I am the blessed Mother of 2 adult sons, one daughter-in-law and 2 precious twin grand babies. I have been a volunteer in children’s ministry and youth programs since I was old enough to be allowed to. Children have always held a place in my heart. I’m blessed to be able to share Gods love with them, helping to guide them into a relationship with him and be a part of such a wonderful team here at CPC.

Shannon Brown

Caravan Director
I have been married to my husband Warren for 12 years and have three children, a daughter and two sons. I am also one of Pastor Chad's younger sisters. I have a strong passion for children in regards to their education, social emotional health, literacy, their prayer life and most importantly their relationship with Christ. I am the Wednesday Evening Children's Program (currently called Caravans) Director. I feel honored to help foster children's learning and relationship with God.

Crystal Thompson

Youth Director
My name is Crystal Thompson and I am the Youth Pastor here at Centerpointe. I love to travel, drink crazy amounts of coffee, and spend time with “my people”. I have had the privilege of working with youth for as long as I can remember. There is something fun, crazy, and entertaining about working with teens. I believe Youth have a lot to share and can help build the Kingdom. 1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct,

Pam Guernsey

Missions Coordinator
I am married to David. 10 years ago we joined our two families. We have 4 adult children and 9 grandkids. I have been a member of Centerpointe Church 4 years, after serving 34 years at my previous church. I am the local Nazarene Missions International (NMI) President and hold the position as Church Board Secretary. As the NMI President, I encourage the church to pray & give for the efforts of missions. I inform and educate on what the church is doing to meet the needs of people locally, nationally, and Internationally. "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..." Matthew 28:19a
