Prairie Center Leadership

The staff and leadership here at Prairie Center is comprised of men and women who love, care and pray for each other, our church family and our community at large. It takes a team, and there are many more not on this page that are vital to the health of our local church!



Pastor Scott and his wife, Crystal, have been a part of this local congregation since they were children. Their passion for Christ and this local church iss the reason they have enjoyed serving God in ministry positions for over 2 decades, including children's ministries, youth and young adult ministries, youth worship, women's ministries, directors of children and youth ministries for the Heartland region, and now as Senior Pastor. Their two sons are oftentimes found serving alongside them.

They are enjoying living out their God-given dream of serving full-time in Christian ministry.


Worship Directors

Jeff and Anita have been in the worship scene in one role or another since their youth. Even though they moved to Olathe in December of 2021, they are no strangers to our local church! Jeff grew up in Olathe and attended our local church as a child into adulthood, until he and Anita met as staff at church camp, married and moved out of the area to help plant a church. He and Anita both have family ties in our church, and we welcomed them back with open arms as the new Worship Directors in February of 2022! Along with their daughter, Jeff and Anita love to mix new music with the old, and bring a variety of worship songs to our Sunday mornings, Worship Wednesdays and other youth events. They work tirelessly to lead with excellence, always keeping Jesus as the focalpoint of their ministry.


Children's Ministry Director

Savannahh was 18 months old when she began attending Prairie Center Church, and her love for God and His people has grown with her here! In her early teenage years, it was apparent that she had a passion for working with preschool and school-age children and teaching them about the Lord!

Savannah oversees Sunday morning (Foundations of Faith) Kid's Service, Wednesday night Kid's Bible Cluub, the Church nursery, and directs our Vacation Bible School during the summer!


Every Day God Experience

We love Youth at Prairie Center CGP, and believe in inspiring teens in middle school and high school to know what they believe, and to understand that a life lived for God is best! We also believe in training our teens to not only be future leaders, but leaders NOW! Our youth group ministry is a team effort, and that team is lead by four of our youth! The Youth Councel (they've nicknamed themselves the Youconians LOL!), supervised by a few adults, plan, organize and lead the youth group in inspired lessons, fun activities, and Christ-centered outreach. We might be biased, but we have the best youth group in town!


EMERGE Young Adult Ministry

Andrea has been a part of our church family since she was three years old. She has served in many capacities throughout the years, but young adults are her passion! She understands this world is a difficult place to be sometimes, and she wants to see them thrive in it: seeking God first and doing exactly what He has called them to do to further His Kingdom. This ministry is for young men and women in all phases of life; from single students to married with children: if you are a senior in high school to 35(ish) years old, EMERGE is the place for you!


Community Outreach Ministry / Children's Bus Ministry

Stephanie has a heart for people, so it's a bonus that she's an awesome even planner as well! Stephanie uses her creative talents and her love of planning to create wonderful opporunities to reach people within the walls of our church, and beyond. Stephanie grew up as a teen and young adult in our local church. She moved out of the Kansas City area for a while, and upon her return, jumped right back into ministry here at Prairie Center! She plans, organizes and executes community outreach events, and is now organizing our new Children's Bus Ministry! We are excited for the ideas and plans that the Lord has given her a vision for, to share the love of Jesus with those in our community!


Director of Online Ministries

Kendra started attending Prairie Center CGP in 1992 when her family moved to the Kansas City area. Now, she and her husband and children can be found serving in several ministry roles in our local church. Kendra keeps our social media pages and our website up to date with upcoming events, ministry opportunities, church communication, and more. She is always looking for ways to minister to people through these outlets, and her motto is, "Ministry over Marketing!". Her belief is that sharing the gospel of Christ is essential; the church is just here to help.
