meet Our Elders

  • Al Erickson

    "God, in His great mercy, opened my heart to the gospel at a young age. Years later He has brought me into a position of leadership here at MBC. My prayer is that I will serve Him well, leading with love, and helping others to come to Christ and to grow in faith. I also pray that we will join together at MBC and work towards what is valuable in Jesus sight."

  • Matt Krason

    "Having been served and supported by leaders in Christ’s church throughout my life I consider it a great privilege to be able to come alongside others as God works in their lives. My prayer for our church family is that through a close intimate relationship with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ they may become more impassioned to share the Gospel and show Christ’s love with those they come in contact with.”

    "The Lord has provided for me in countless ways, most importantly my salvation through Jesus. He instilled in me a desire to serve His church wherever I could be used. I feel God has called me to the position of elder at MBC, and I will use the gifts given by Him as best I can. As long as Christ will use me, I will continue to serve His church, help others to grow in Him and spread His Word."
