Pastoral Team


Jeff Penner – Lead Pastor

Jeff Penner is our lead pastor as of November 1, 2021. Jeff and his wife Teri live in Grunthal with their four children Cierra, Isaiah, Owen and Brynn.


1 Corinthians 15:3-4 “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,”

“I have received the transforming message of the gospel and as my primary objective want to tell others the truth of the gospel which is found in the scriptures. The gospel is Jesus Christ, HIs life, death, resurrection, and ascension.”
They have been married since 2004, and enjoy fellowshipping with the saints more than anything.  Games are played often in their house, and if you visit you need to be prepared to be ribbed a little.






Randy Fast – Associate Pastor 

Randy’s goal is to trust God with all his heart as it says in Proverbs 3:5.  He has been married to Joyce since 2003 and they have 6 children.  Randy has been serving as the youth pastor at the Bergthaler church since January 1, 2003.  He enjoys talking and praying with people.  Randy also likes to play tennis, hockey and badminton..  Joyce says Randy has a dry sense of humor and he is OK with that.
