Senior Pastor - Dr. Harlan Betz

Harlan grew up on a farm northwest of Ladora, Iowa. It was there, through the influence of his parents and his older brother, that he came to realize his need for Jesus Christ, and at the age of seven he placed his faith in Christ for forgiveness of sins and for eternal life. Harlan began preaching when he was in college, and he has served in the pastorate ever since graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary.

Harlan's partner in life and ministry is his wife, Sharon. She has served in several different ministry areas, but has a special heart for women's ministry. Her passion is to help women develop an intimate relationship with God and to help women connect and minister to one another. She also loves to open her home in hospitality, play tennis, hike, and work on calligraphy projects.  Sharon and Harlan have two married children and eight grandchildren.  Their son, Josh, is married to Jill and lives in Cypress, Texas, with their five children - Madison, Noah, Micah, Kayna and Elizabeth. Their daughter, Sarah, is married to Mark Loeffler and lives in Murrieta, California with their three boys - Luke, Ben, and Sam.

Harlan enjoys being outdoors, he enjoys hunting, and he enjoys playing tennis and golf. Harlan has a great love for the Lord and a genuine love for people. Harlan’s passion is to see lives transformed into conformity with Christ through the teaching of the Scriptures. He finds great delight in studying the Word, putting it into practice, and sharing its truths with others. He is well known for his expository preaching and his Bible teaching. His teaching is personal, practical, motivational, enthusiastic, and life-changing!
