Arnis Pape - Preaching

I'm driven to preach and teach by my love for God and for people. I believe we truly live only by knowing God, so I'm passionate about knowing him personally and clearly communicating his self-revelation in scripture.

My family and I moved from Texas in 1997. Connie and I have two adult children, a beautiful daughter-in-law and two sweet grandchildren! We all call Louisville and WRCC our home.

Doug Lalli - Worship

I have the pleasure and honor of leading this church in worship. It's a role I love and take seriously because I love God and His people. And thankfully, this church loves to spend time in worship! There's nothing like hearing the voices of the church praising God! 

I moved to this church in December of 1997 when I served as the youth minister. I have two amazing sons, Isaac and Elijah. My family has grown through many things in my years with this church and my role has evolved into what it is today. (and I couldn't be happier about that!)

Outside my love for God, my boys and this church, I love football and especially the Oklahoma Sooners! (Oh, and tacos, I really love tacos!)

Craig Thomas - Students

Myself, Shyann, and the mighty Therapy Dog Ace, get the please of serving our youth in the building and out. I have a Bachelors from Harding and a Masters from Lipscomb to prepare for a deep Biblical approach to Youth Ministry. My goal is to ignite a fire for the Word of God in the Hearts of the young men and woman making up our church. 

Outside of spending time with the youth I play and teach golf, do woodworking, work on my photography, read, bike, run, walk, and play my guitars and ukuleles. I see God's beauty in every discipline, so I try and work on as many different talents I can so appreciate the ones who have immense talent in that field and also to see and experience God's nature in that activity. 

My deepest hope is that when I finish interacting with anyone, they can walk away more in love with Christ, and not remember my name. 

"May we be enabled to say 'No' to sin and 'Yes' to the sinner."
