Greg Heisler, Senior Pastor
My joy in ministry is leading people to see the glory of Jesus Christ in the pages of the Bible. I believe people are transformed when they see Jesus, know Jesus, and surrender to Jesus. I love leading, feeding, and serving the Church as a pastor-teacher. I Thessalonians 2:8 is my goal: "Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God, but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us." When I am not hanging out with my family, I am usually trying to play golf, walk the dog, or catch a Nascar race. While Jesus is my King, the Vols are my team. READ MORE... | Email Pastor Greg
My passion aligns with my life purpose which is “to know Christ better and make Him better known”. I seek to practice daily discipleship and teach others the essentials of the Christian faith and how to live and lead according to the Bible. I am involved in shepherding those who are hurting, offering encouragement and hope through the message of the Gospel. For fun I enjoy: being with my family and friends, walks with Betty, reading, fishing, college basketball & football, enjoying a memorable meal with others, having some alone time, and mentoring men and young couples who desire to walk closer with God.READ MORE... | Email Bud
Jimmy Finch, Minister of Music
The joy of leading others to the throne room of the Lord has been my passion for many years! Worship is not just music and singing but what God wants from us in all we do. When we meet as a family of God each week, the glory of Lord is our purpose and goal through worship and the Word. The benefit as believers is His presence among us and the hope that only He can give! Music has always been apart of my life and is not only my occupation but what I do in my spare time with others and my family. I enjoy imparting my knowledge and love for music to others through guitar and voice lessons. I enjoy spending time with my wife, Christi and kids, playing disc golf and watching movies.

Jason Powers, Minister of Youth
It is my desire to see teens fully trust Christ as the savior of their souls and to be dedicated to the calling He has placed on their life. I find joy in leading teens in this endeavor and have adopted Psalm 71:18 as my life's passion, "Even when I am old and gray, O God, do not abandon me, until I tell the next generation about your strength, and those coming after me about your power." I love spending time with my family, coaching my kids in different sports, and spending time outdoors.

Cindy Retherford, Director of Childhood Education
It is my passion to see the next generation know the Lord so that they would put their trust in Him and know of his abundant love for them. Believing that the Bible commands parents in Deuteronomy 6:4-5 to help their children grow in their relationship with Jesus as they go throughout the natural rhythm of their life I want the Children’s Ministry to come alongside them to help them make this command reality in their home. As families come to Mount Vernon it is my desire to provide a safe and nurturing environment where children can experience God’s Big Story through interactive lessons with teachers who desire to invest in them.

Eric Henderson, Director of Recreation Ministry
It is my passion to see families come to know Christ. God has given me the awesome opportunity to share with coaches, players and their families as we glorify and honor Christ through physical activity. We strive to bring glory to God in all we do from EQUIP to Church-wide and community events. It is the heart of recreation ministry and its leadership to see families and individuals come into a personal and deep relationship with Jesus Christ.

Travis Burt, Minister of Missions and Evangelism
My passion is to obey the Lord Jesus in all things. I love serving Him with the gifts He has given me. I enjoy leading others in recognizing Jesus as their Lord and Savior and challenging them to share the message of hope and salvation through Christ with everyone they meet. All people are made in His image and should be given the chance to know they can have a personal relationship with God because of His great love for them. My family's life verse is 1 Thessalonians "Faithful is He who has called and He will bring it to pass" NASB. He has brought much to pass in my life. I am thankful and look forward to what is yet to come. READ MORE... | Email Travis
