OUR MINISTRY TEAM

THE CHURCH

is not a building.  It is a  group of people committed to working together for the sake of the Gospel!  Agapé has been blessed with many wonderful people willing to freely share their talents, energy and time. 
Here are a few of them:

Jonny Rodgers

A 20-year-old Jonny was attending an Agapé worship service when God's Spirit unexpectantly and radically changed his life. Afterward, he invested himself in the work of the church as an apprentice, then associate and now lead pastor.

Brian Andersen

Executive Pastor

Brian came on staff at Agapé in 1995.  He has served as Worship Pastor and elder and currently serves as Executive Pastor.  He enjoys the wife of his youth and their six children and eight grandchildren.  He takes pleasure in mentoring men and couples to excel in their Christian walk.
