Pastor Mac is married to Tracey and they have four children together. After receiving the Lord here in January of 1996 as a college student at WSU, the Lord called him back as its Lead Pastor in the fall of 2015. Pastor Mac is passionate about seeing people transformed by the love of Jesus Christ and reading for ministry in his free time, which is hopefully accompanied by strong coffee and chocolate chip cookies.
Associate Pastor of Teaching & Groups
Pastor Kathy is married to Steve Young with 3 kids and 1 son-in-law. They moved to Winona in 1994, where they immediately felt at home. Kathy grew up on a farm in central Minnesota and has a background in business, music and theology. Her initial call into ministry came in 2004 when the Lord’s voice woke her from her sleep and spoke His assignment over her. Her greatest joy is helping people know God intimately, discover their calling, and boldly live out His purposes in this generation.

Katie is married to Chris, a professor at SMU, and a mother to two young children. She taught upper elementary and junior high in a private Christian school for nearly a decade before transitioning to a full-time mom after moving to Winona from California.
