Lenia Johnson

WORSHIP ARTS DIRECTOR

Lenia has a passion for God, His word, His church, and the arts. It is her honor and privilege to serve as Worship Director with the loving support of her amazing family. You can find her husband, Anthony, working in the production room, her daughter Tori, leading littles in KidsPoint and her son Tristan, greeting, singing or helping out where he can. She was raised in church participating in a wide variety of ministries and activities and is grateful for a strong foundation in the word of God and serving others. She enjoys helping those in need, learning new things, watching sports on the big screen or from the sidelines, hosting parties and functions, family game nights and laughing every day. It's still hard for her to believe sometimes that God has blessed her to transition from a long career in insurance to her dream job: helping to make disciples, teach about and point people to Jesus while leading musical worship on Sundays. God is faithful!

Cindy Leveling

KIDSPOINT DIRECTOR

Cindy was literally born to be a mom. Forty years ago, she married her high school sweetheart and together they raised eight amazing kids, five of whom are married and raising their own children.

As if that isn’t enough, she gets to work at a GREAT church, with kids, and the people who love them; you seriously cannot make this stuff up! It is her passion to impart the reality and love of Jesus to EVERYONE who passes through KidsPoint; young and old, shy or bold, sweet or sassy, nice or naughty, we all need to know how lavishly we are loved by our Father in heaven. In her spare time, she takes care of her chickens, two cats, two dogs, and even manages to sneak in some spontaneous adventures with her sister.
