Team Leaders

StecklersChildren's Ministry, Jay & Tamara Steckler

Jay & Tamara Steckler are natives of North Dakota and have attended PFC since 2005. Jay has served on the Board of Trustees and Tamara helps in many areas as well. Feeling the stirring of God upon their hearts, the Steckler’s have taken the reigns of our children’s ministry, including Junior Bible Quiz (JBQ) with a desire to see all children grow closer to God. They believe that no child should be left behind when it comes to discipleship and a commitment to God through Jesus. Jay and Tamara have the same philosophy in raising their five children, Kyle, Alyssa, Justin, Bridget and Cierra .

It means a lot to Randy as he had some amazing youth leaders in his junior high and high school days and hopes when these teenagers look back on their days at PFC they appreciate those who invested time in their growth and walk as he appreciates those who invested in him.
