Senior Pastor

Pastor Martin (Marty) Crump is a native of Gillette. He met his wife Carrie in Gillette and they married in 1977. They attended Bible College in Lafayette, Louisiana for 2 years. After being prompted by the Lord, they returned home to Gillette. They have been in Christian service for over 30 years, teaching Sunday school, youth group and Christian school. Pastor Marty and Carrie have raised three children; Abby, Joshua, and Sarah and have so far been blessed with six grandchildren.

Pastor Marty and Carrie helped pioneer a community counseling outreach and in 1985 that community outreach was incorporated as Family Life Church. In 1986, Pastor Marty Crump became the senior pastor. Family Life Church has grown by the grace and mercy of God, from a one room store front to a 25,000 sq. ft. facility on nine acres. Pastor Marty and Carrie have grown with the church from its humble beginnings to its current position in the community. It has been a challenge and a blessing for Pastor Marty and Carrie to pastor in a town they both grew up in and love.

Associate Pastor

Pastor Bill Morel has been filling the role of associate pastor here at Family Life Church since October of 2006. Bill grew-up in Illinois and attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio where he graduated with a Master of Arts in Elementary Teaching in 1974. Bill had surrendered his life to Jesus during his college years and began to pursue a long held dream of being a "missionary". His first teaching assignment was in Queensland, Australia where he taught for 15 month, one year of that being on the Bamaga Aboriginal Reserve. A correspondence romance with Mary back in Minnesota called Bill to return there, but with an intermittent, life changing two month mission outreach with Youth With A Mission in the Samoan Islands.

Since Bill and Mary were married in 1976 they have attempted to follow God's leading in numerous locations. After 18 years with Okontoe Fellowship Ministries in Minnesota, Bill and Mary moved to Gillette to teach at Heritage Christian School for 6 years. They then returned to a long time dream of working with YWAM once again and joined the staff of the Crossroads Discipleship Training School.

What does Pastor Bill enjoy most at Family Life Church? Worship, prayer, and interactive small groups and Bible studies. (And of course Sunday morning coffee)

Peter and Abby Angelos

Mary Morel is the Children's Ministry Director. Mary joined the staff of Family Life Church in the summer of 2007 and has been honored to serve with a great group of volunteers who make up the Children's Ministry Team. Mary was blessed to be the 5th and last child of missionary parents. Born in the Himalayan Mountains of India, Mary spent most of her formative years in the Punjab in northern India and attending boarding school in the mountains.

When her family returned to the United States, they operated a campground and youth camp ministry in northeastern Minnesota. She was deeply involved with this ministry while attending college to get her degree in Elementary Education. Bill and Mary married after her graduation and have had a wonderful adventurous life together, serving the Lord on the mission field in Papua New Guinea, Northern Ontario with the Ojibway people, Youth With A Mission based in Hawaii and assisting families in missions to Asia, along with teaching school, family counseling, helping operate the camps, and youth work.

Bill and Mary have 4 grown children; Peter, Andrew, Katie, and Shelly. Three are married. Peter and Melanie have been blessed with Isabella, Andrew and Tamaira have been blessed with Naomi, and Katie married Jason Litzow, an Australian, in 2010. Katie and Jason minister at a children's home in Bali, Indonesia. Shelly joined Katie and Jason at the children's home in 2011 so she could be involved with that ministry as well.

A little about Keith and Colleen Jacobson:

We have two wonderful children, Carter and Juilia-Lynn, and have been married since December 2006. Keith thoroughly enjoys teaching science at Westwood High School and has been teaching since 2006. Keith has attended Family Life Church since 1991 when he started going with his parents Kirk and Melody Jacobson at the age of 10 years old. Colleen was raised in a strong Christian family in Toronto, Ontario and worked as a manager of a chiropractic and massage therapy clinic. We met on a mission trip in Mexico through Teen Mania in 2005.

We had the privilege of leading two mission trips the summer of 2012 to Guatemala, with youth from all over the nation through Global Expeditions, Teen Mania. We were so blessed to see approximately 900 - 1,000 people come to Christ during that summer! We have great expectations for our mission trips and hope many of our youth from FLC will join us! Mission trips have always been a part of our summers since we were teenagers and it is truly our hearts' passion to help our youth develop a passion for the Lord and lead others to Christ.
