We love how the Bible lays out the job description of elders to be more like a shepherd than anything else. Elders lead the church, teach and preach the Word, protect from error, and care for and encourage the church.

    Director of Family Discipleship

    Peter serves as our Director of Family Discipleship. Parents have been appointed by God to be an irreplaceable tool in his powerful hands for the purpose of training children in the gospel. Peter serves to assist, equip, and encourage parents in this essential task. He and his wife, Carrie, were involved in the conception of Holy Cross in 2010. They have three daughters: Nevaeh, Selah, and Lexi.


Deacons are among our best servants of the church and are specifically called to help maintain the health and care of the church by giving leadership to our most basic practical and physical needs.

  • gary oglebay

    My name is Gary and I have been married to Julie for 28 years. We have two daughters, Chelsea (22), and Rachel (20). I am originally from Howell, Michigan where I spent my first 22 years of life. We have attended Holy Cross since 2012 and have loved every minute of it. For those of us that have been to other churches in our time, it it so obvious that Holy Cross church is an absolute treasue. I am excited to be a part of what God is doing here.

  • bil van otterloo

    My name is Bil and I've been coming to Holy Cross for about since 2014 with my wife Sarah and our 2 kids - Liam (11) and Abby (9). Holy Cross has been a tremendous gift to our family. In the last 2 years, our family has grown more in our relationship with God than in any time previously. After our first visit we knew that our family would be cared for here and that we would hear the Gospel preached each week.
