About our Pastor
Kasey is a native of Hildreth, Nebraska. Kasey's background is in farming and construcion mangagement. It doesn't take long for a person to realize that Kasey has an obvious passion for Jesus, his family, bow hunting, and hotrods.
Becoming a pastor was not even close to what Kasey hoped to do with his life in his younger years. Infact, he used to strongly dislike going to church . Following Christ appeared boring to him when compared to everything the party scene offered. He was a homecoming king and a feared linebacker in highschool that liked to do damage to quaterbacks. He would have never admited it then, but he now admits there was an emptiness inside of him even during some of his greatest moments before meeting Christ.
It was late in highschool when his world got rocked by a nice church girl named Jen.
Jen attended Crossgate so Kasey followed her there to make a good impression, but he found something even greater. He found what the hole in his soul was ultimately after - a relationship with Christ. After he got the girl his pursuit to become a follower of Christ didn't waver. The purpose he had found in the Christian faith was far greater than anything else he had been chasing in his younger years.
We are a church that strongly believes in raising up disciples and we are proud to have a "home grown" pastor as our leader. Kasey is now our fulltime pastor role at Crossgate. He resides in Franklin with his wife Jen and daughters Lola, Lena, Olivia, Lindy, Amelia, and Jude.
