KCCC Church Staff

The Board of Elders is the ruling body of the church.  At Kiowa Creek Community Church, our Board of Elders is made up of the Elders and a non-voting Pastor.  These members make pertinent decisions for the church, having both executive powers as a group and pastoral responsibility.


We have two fabulous, biblically based, ordained pastors, that share our pastoral duties. Please come and hear Buddy Strachen or Mike McArthur on Sunday mornings at 9am.  Both of these outstanding pastors will preach the Word as it is taught to us in the Bible. This is the real deal, not the feel good pablum taught in a lot of the mainstream denominations out there. If you’re looking for a refreshing change of real gospel teaching then this is for you.  Both Mike and Buddy will be teaching the Del Tackett “The Truth Project” bible study on Wednesday nights starting in mid July in our Fellowship Hall at 6:30pm starting.


The Kiowa Creek Community Church congregation is led by its Elders, laymen and laywomen elected by the congregation to serve a 3-year term. Collectively called Board of Elders, with the pastor, these dedicated and faithful members are charged with the oversight of the spiritual, programmatic and business life of the church and congregation.  They work together to discern God’s leading for KCCC, make sure that good practices are in place for its personnel and oversee the programmatic life of the congregation.  The Board of Elders ensures the financial well-being of KCCC and cares for its buildings and grounds.  The Board of Elders set policy and give vision to the work, mission, and ministry of Kiowa Creek Community Church.  The current Elders are Kurt Malerich,  Dave Saltzman, Linda Ehmann, Betty Hood, and James Schwarzkopf.


The Deacons, collectively The Board of Deacons are an extension of the pastoral arms of the church.  They are charged with ministries of caring within the congregation.  Elected to 3-year terms by the congregation, the Deacons connect people of KCCC to one another, provide meals, deliver flowers, provide transportation and home help for members, visit those in difficult situations and assist with Kiowa Creek Community Church’s newest members.  The Deacons represent the heart of the congregation and live out Jesus’ commandment to love God by loving one another.  Current Deacons are Carla Martell, Linda Ehmann and Helena Miller
