Prophetic Ministry : Karen Brothers
Our church has always held the spiritual gifting of prophetic ministry very high. To protect the integrity of those who minister and those who receive, we have instituted protocol and instruction which Karen oversees. Healthy boundaries and simple guidelines give everyone a sense of security and freedom.
Women’s Ministry : Phyllis Lautzenheiser
The women’s ministry at FOTB has been a healthy opportunity for women to fellowship and to receive instruction and ministry. There are weekly meetings and occasional retreats. Phyllis leads this ministry with great faithfulness and passion.
Helps Ministry : Kathy Forbes
Kathy is always aware of visitors and how they are doing in our services. We are blessed to begin a ministry that trains and mobilizes ushers and greeters to help provide an “on ramp” for people wanting to visit and join us.
Dream Interpretation : Diane Brothers
God uses dreams to speak to us. Diane oversees classes and any ministry in this area. The ministry is very prophetic and scripture based.
Children and Youth Equipping : Maria Brothers
Our vision for teaching and ministering to our youth is to equip them for the ministry. We believe that at a very young age they are able to do the works of the ministry. To that vision we direct our program. Maria, who is abundantly qualified being a certified teacher herself, has been a real asset to us.
Youth Leaders : Brady and Maria Brothers
Home grown leaders who have just recently accepted this opportunity to lead our youth, these two, like many of our young adult couples, have proven and tested loyalty to the Lord and the vision here. This ministry is in the embryonic stage, and we anticipate its coming forth.
Repairer of the Breach : Pam and Kurt Apisa
Pam and Kurt target the homeless and poverty stricken to share the love of Christ by giving a lunch, a hat, a coat, a gift and then praying for ministry opportunities through these acts. Several outreach events are planned throughout the year that we all get to participate in.
Prayer Furnace : Rick Lautzenheiser
Using the “Harp and Bowl” model (worship and intercession), we have set up prayer sessions that take place almost daily.
Property, Facilities, Maintenance : Craig Brothers
Craig is the go-to-person for the needs of the property, facilities, and maintenance. Being very qualified, he has also overseen much of the building projects.
Benevolence : Rob Lautzenheiser, Craig Brothers and Kenny Blackburn
These three share the responsibility of responding to needs within and outside of our church family. They combine wisdom and compassion in their giving as they give as unto to the Lord.
FOTB Bookstore : Diane Brothers
The bookstore is a real asset to the church as we have on hand books and CDs that are relevant to where we are as a church.
Website Administrator : Summer Ketchum
Responsible for the design of our website, Summer oversees the site to keep it current and usable.
India Children’s Home : Rick Lautzenheiser
The church has sponsored a children’s home in India since 1993 that is under Jacob Beera / Hope Ministries. The home usually houses 50 children from poor families who are unable to send their children to school. At the home, children are properly clothed, fed, taught the gospel, and sent to a public school.
