Chris and Lynnlee Moser have been serving in ministry together for over 18 years.  Some of their favorite memories in ministry include baptizing students in the ocean on the beaches of Destin, Fl., taking students to Mexico to help build a home for a local pastor, and planting a church in Texas where over 200 people found Christ in the church's first three years. 

Chris and Lynnlee love hiking and backpacking with their two amazing boys, Preston (14) and Cooper (7.).  They have a huge goal of summiting Pikes Peak together this summer. 


Dr. Jeren Rowell - Kansas City District Superintendent 

Jeren Rowell serves as district superintendent of the Kansas City District Church of the Nazarene.   Dr. Rowell is a frequent speaker in churches, workshops, college and seminary classes, and retreats. Dr. Rowell has a particular passion for helping pastors and their families.  He also has a deep concern that local congregations learn to live together under the lordship of Jesus in such a way that we truly become a living sign of the kingdom of God.  Our churches should be models of love, forgiveness, reconciliation, and peace.  Jesus prayed, “May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me” (John 17:23). Jeren and Starla have four children, two of which are married, and five grandchildren.
