banner-helping-handsWe will soon be putting together a Board of Care.  These will be individuals I will meet with regularly and who will be a point of contact for all the people attending Searchlight.  If you care about people, love talking on the phone, enjoy networking with others, and is generally a “people person”, perhaps you would do great with this group.  They will be responsible for touching base with people assigned to them and regularly pray for and give care to those who need it.  Does this sound like something that would interest you?  Please use the "Contact" form at the top of the menu to let us know if God has placed a desire in your heart to serve, or if you have any questions about the ministries of Caring.

In our congregation, God has placed faithful men and women who have accepted the call to serve the needs of the church.

Let me introduce you to the people who are serving as our Board of Directors.  They are (in alphabetical order): Jody Browning, Josephine Dibble, Paul Eltiste, Bob Kessler, Heather Manning, Mark Manning, Richard Manning, Louise Reichwein, Craig Seboldt.

We meet monthly, discussing the overall ministry and direction of Searchlight Ministries.  We have an amazing group of lay leaders and I thank God for the incredible teamwork and open, honest discussions that took place. What a joy it was to work with such fine people!  They are all dedicated to the spiritual well-being of Searchlight and its members and all of its future members!  If there is anything further you would like to know about the meeting, please talk to me and I can share more details about our meeting and our discussions and decisions.

-Pastor Mark

author manningPastor Mark has been a pastor since 1998. His desire to relate the teachings of God’s Word to believers and non-believers alike make him an enjoyable speaker to listen to. He loves to hang out with God and his wife of 21 years and 3 active boys.

Pastor Mark always enjoys meeting the new people that come to Searchlight. When you come to visit, introduce yourself. You will often find him at the food table after church enjoying a chocolate, waxy donut.

We also invite you to e-mail Pastor Mark or use the "Contact" form located at the top menu for any questions or concerns you might have.

Pastor Mark Manning

heather-manningHeather Manning – Director of Ministries

She is the cutest pastor’s wife around. (Don’t worry… this is her husband, Mark writing this description!) Heather is a hip chick that runs the youth and children’s ministry here at Searchlight. If you have a kid from preschool to high school, then you’ve probably already met her. If not, introduce yourself to her. She’s usually running around playing with kids or trying to corral her own 3 children.
