Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God and realizes we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd,
Jesus Christ. We devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word, serving others in service of Him. Our passion
and mission is to equip believers and their families, helping them to better know, love and serve Jesus!
Pastor Kenneth Brown, Lead Pastor
Service isn’t a component of ministry. It’s the very lifeblood of ministry. It’s only through serving others that we truly come to know, love and serve Christ, and it’s only through that love, knowledge and service that we grow closer to Him. Pastor Kenny and his wife, Rachel, have served in ministry for twenty-four years; twenty of which have been at The Good Shepherd Ministries. They are dedicated to mentoring and developing disciples, teaching the truth of the Gospel, raising up adult and student leaders, and creating, developing and supporting every ministry within the church. Pastor Kenny’s desire is to see children who love Jesus grow to become teenagers who love Jesus; teenagers who love Jesus grow to become adults who love Jesus; and adults who love Jesus grow to fully realize their Great Commission calling in our church, community and world. One of his greatest joys is watching believers lead and encourage other believers. He counts it a blessing and privilege to lead the congregation of TGSM as they dedicate their lives to serving others and serving Jesus Christ.    
Brad Distad, Director of Family Ministries & Outreach

When Brad’s older sister invited him to Young Life as a gangly teen twenty-five years ago, he had no idea his world was about to change forever! He became captivated by the person of Jesus Christ, for the first time realizing “he who has the Son, has life” (John 5:12). With the truth that Christ is Life, Brad resolved to share the gospel with anyone God put in front of him! As a follower of Jesus, it’s Brad’s desire to live an authentic, fun, Christ-honoring life. At the core of his message is the belief that we are beloved children of the Good Father, and we are called to love one another. Brad was raised in Washington County but has served in full-time ministry in Asia, Minnesota, California and Nevada with his wife Jessica. They are excited the Lord has brought them and their five children back to Washington County all these years later where it all began!

Bella Morganthal, Director of Youth Ministries
A relationship with Jesus needs to be central in our lives. Unfortunately, more and more teens find their comfort and answers in culture rather than their Savior. As a church, we have a very special opportunity to build relationships with students, lead them towards the things of God, and create an environment that allows them to engage with Scripture, connect with the Spirit, and grow in Christ.  As Director of Youth Ministries, Bella has been called to disciple junior and senior high teens, guiding each one toward a life truly worth living; a life dedicated to knowing, loving and serving Jesus Christ.
Reverend Steven McCullough, Founding Pastor & Sr. Pastor Emeritus

What began as a spark in the heart of a teenage troublemaker saved by grace quickly grew into a fire that has burned for more than three decades of ministry.  That fire, that call, was as simple as it was profound. Expand the kingdom.  Despite trials and adversity, Pastor Steven McCullough answered that call, Christ’s Great Commission, establishing more than two-dozen churches across the United States, Mexico, Chile, Thailand, the Philippines and Papua New Guinea.  Even as his ministry continued to develop in exciting new ways, his mission, at home and abroad, remained the same: to help people come to know, to love and to serve Jesus Christ.  The Good Shepherd Ministries is a realization of that mission.  Pastor McCullough’s decades-long passion for full-family ministry and missions has passed to our Lead Pastor and multiplied throughout our congregation, allowing us to nurture new believers, strengthen faithful followers, and heed the call so long ingrained in his heart.

Lisa Mowen, Secretary & Treasurer
Lisa ensures that the office is running smoothly, serves on the advisory board, maintains the church’s financial processes, and is responsible for financial and individual congregation records.  She also handles inquires and publications, and assists the Lead Pastor and staff with any ministry coordination needs.  Her husband, Mike, leads our maintenance team as well, investing the same kind of humility and servantheartedness into the upkeep of the building and grounds that Lisa brings to the office.  We’re truly blessed to count the Mowens among our church family!
The Good Shepherd Ministries Advisory Board
We believe that the Pastor is responsible for the church, to hear from God, and to feed and love His people faithfully. Advisors are appointed as needed by the Pastor and serve as an official Advisory Board, which consists of no less than three members. The Advisory Board’s primary duties are to help the Pastor care for the spiritual needs of the congregation, as well as the material needs of the church, and to empower the pastoral staff and the membership to carry out the vision of the church. Our current advisors are:
David Dick       Dan Garnand       Carolyn Hardt      David Dodson       David Dressel       Lisa Mowen
