  • 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.”
