Chris is a 2005 graduate of Evangel University, and has been in full-time church ministry for 18 years. He and his wife, Natasha have 4 kids (but no pets, because, you know, allergies and stuff).
Chris is passionate about bringing the sometimes-complicated world of theology out of the clouds and into everyday life.
Shad has been part of the North Parkway family since 2012, and received his ministry license in 2020. He and his wife, Molly, are excited to teach and mentor young people of all ages.
Shad’s goal in ministry is to see kids and students take their faith outside the walls of the church and into every part of their lives.
Missy grew up at North Parkway where she and her husband, Dirk, raised three children (so if you want any juicy church-history tidbits, she probably knows where all the skeletons are buried 😉 ). She felt God’s call to ministry as a 14-year old and has been serving in church ever since – working with kids & nursery, student ministry, leading bible studies and more.
Missy is excited and committed to see the church become a family where we do life together.
Carrie has been with King’s Kids for over a decade, both as a teacher and a director. She oversees one of the highest-regarded early childhood learning centers in the greater Peoria region, and consistently earns high marks for her organizational acumen and people skills.
