Pastoral Staff

Our church is blessed to have 2 full-time pastors.

Paul Harder

Paul Harder was born in Congo, Africa and grew up with two brothers and two sisters. Although born in Africa to missionary parents, he spent the majority of his growing up years in Omaha, Nebraska. Paul put his trust in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at an early age, through the witness of his father and mother.

Paul returned to Congo with his parents for his last two years of high school. God dramatically used those two years to broaden Paul's vision of the world, and plant the seed of full-time vocational Christian work in his heart. With this in mind, Paul attended Grace University in Omaha, majoring in history, philosophy and Bible.

Paul and Ruth were married and then moved to Dallas, Texas where Paul pursued further biblical training at Dallas Theological Seminary. Majoring in Old Testament, Paul graduated in May 1981, with his Master of Theology degree. In June of 1981, Paul and Ruth accepted the call to be pastor of the O'Neill Berean Church. Later, in 1984, when the Berean Church merged with Faith Community, he was asked to remain and pastor the new church. Paul has been responsible for the main teaching of the Body, but at this time is transitioning into the role of Care Pastor. His primary responsibilities will include visitation, administration, and occasional pulpit fill.

During these years, Paul, Ruth, and the church body have been privileged to see God work in great ways. It is our prayer that God will continue to change lives for His glory, and that by His grace, Faith Community will produce faithful, humble and obedient servants of Jesus Christ.

Paul and Ruth have 3 married daughters and 12 grandchildren that they find great delight in.

Jamie Lindsay
-Youth Pastor

Jamie Lindsay was born and raised in England. With both parents firmly rooted in their faith, he was drawn to the love of Christ at an early age. After graduating High School in England, he moved to the United States for college to attend Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska, where he majored in youth ministry and Biblical studies. In 2004, one week after graduating from Grace, he married Amber. God has blessed them with 4 children, Mia, Reagan, Levi, and Whitney.

Throughout his college years, he volunteered and interned at Brookside Church, working first with the Junior High and later with the High School. It was here that he put the skills learned in college to work. Ministering to those kids not only developed the skills he learned in college, but also increased his passion for communicating the love of Christ to youth. Knowing that God had called them to full-time ministry, they were led to Faith Community Church in August of 2006.

While working at Faith Community Church, Jamie had a desire to further develop his ability to serve youth. As a result, he pursued and graduated with a Master of Christian Leadership degree from Liberty University. Jamie and Amber have been blessed beyond belief in their time at Faith Community Church and look forward to serving here in the years to come. The desire of their hearts is to reach youth for the glory of Christ. They want to be faithful servants by following Him in this adventure and challenge He has placed before them.
