Michelle Mason

Michelle is passionate about loving God’s people and desires to connect them with God and other believers. With a contagious fun-loving personality, she is able to link people together and help foster strong spiritual relationships within our church.

Karla Dennis

Next Gen Pastor

Hello there, I would like to introduce you to the coolest person ever, Pastor Karla! Just kidding, although she is pretty cool! Pastor Karla loves being the Student Pastor at Harvest Life, she loves having fun, being a bit silly, and most importantly impacting the next generation. She is passionate about teaching and shaping God’s future leaders. Although she lives in Georgia she’s a Midwest girl at heart hailing from South Dakota. Even though PK misses the snow, she has discovered a new love in tennis! If PK is not out on the courts or reading the latest book she is with her best man, her dog Bruce.  Who I can honestly say is the coolest dog ever! 

Juwan Benjamin

Young Adult Pastor / Stream & Production Director

Juwan along with his wife Sarah lead the young adult ministry Regeneration.

Sonia Lackley

Executive Administrator

There are two things that you will notice about our amazing church administrator Sonia: her 10in heels, and her passion to direct, organize, and manage the church offices. Sonia is passionate about helping the people in our community, often times putting the needs of others before herself.  Even though Sonia is not a pastor she ministers weekly to people who come through the front doors of our church. Sonia recently had the greatest privilege of welcoming her first grandson Zion Christian. When she is not here at the church you can find her cooking or shopping.
