Eric von Atzigen - Lead Pastor
Eric von Atzigen along with his wife, Mindy, became pastors of Living Faith in January of 2020. Eric was a small town Texas boy who met Jesus through bus ministry outreach from a local church. When he got saved at age 16, he dedicated his life to the ministry in the same moment. He is a lover of people and desires to see each church member equipped and released in his or her spiritual gifting. He also loves gardening bonsai trees, cooking in his smoker, riding a tandem bicycle with his wife, wrestling and fishing with his three grown sons, and taking his daughter shoe shopping.
Alex Anderson - Outreach Pastor
Alex heads up the LFF outreach ministries, such as the Urban Outreach Group and our food pantry. Alex and his wife, Tanya, are long time LFF members and greatly desire to reach the community that surrounds us. One of Alex's passions is creating hip-hop music to reach the culture, and he frequently releases original music.
Michelle Mravec - Administrator
Michelle enjoys working with a team who has the same goal in mind--walking alongside believers throughout their journey with Christ and winning hearts for Jesus locally and abroad! She likes the administrative and business side of running a church, helping maintain the inner workings in the background. In her free time, she loves spending time with her family and her two daughters.
Abbie Strukel - Communications Director & Administrative Assistant
Abbie grew up in the Living Faith family. From the time she graduated, she has been a part of the team helping wherever needed! Abbie is now our communications director and runs our social media, website, printing, and much more. In her free time, she enjoys kayaking and exploring the outdoors.
Christina Dougherty - Children's Ministry Director
Christina loves getting to know and play beside the children of LFF, along with finding ways to make God's word come to life for them. She'll take any excuse to be silly and dress funny! Christina has been married for 29 years and has collected 4 children, 2 bonus sons, and 4 grandchildren.
Connie Adams - Pastoral Care
Connie leads a dynamic volunteer team that helps care for the practical needs of LFF church members. She loves to get an inside view of how the church works to care for itself and seeing people meet other's needs before she hears of it. Connie is married with 11 children who all grew up in the LFF church family.
Craig Angel - Youth Pastor
Craig's passion is seeing students walk in their identity in Christ, growing in their faith, ministering to other students, and reaching the broken, lost, and hurting in their communities. Craig, his wife, and his three boys love to go to the beach and hang out with other families.
Mindy von Atzigen - Worship Pastor
Mindy and Eric have been married and partnering together in ministry for 24 years. She loves sharing the hope that is found in Jesus through preaching, worship leading, and conversations around the table.
