Doug and Natassia McIntosh, Youth Pastors
Doug serves as our full-time youth pastor and grew up in Ohio. He and Natassia came to Life Church from Texas where they started dating in high school after Doug’s family relocated to Texas. Natassia is an ICU nurse at the Navicent Health Medical Center.
Jamie Morris, Children's Pastor
Jamie grew up in Georgia and serves as our Wednesday night Life Kids leader. She also helps lead our women’s ministry and is involved in our young adults leadership. She works full time at the Air Force base.
In January 2004, Life Church held its first Sunday morning service with 21 people with founding pastor, Dr. Billy and Valerie Thomas. The original name of the church was Refuge Church. Since then, we have built four facilities: first, a worship facility; then, an office and children's wing; next, a new sanctuary; and, most recently, a youth building. Rev. Craig & Brooke Ruesch came to serve as the second lead pastors of Life Church in 2015. In the last few years, our church has experienced significant growth. Our vision is to continue to reach Middle Georgia with Jesus, and to expand our facilities as needed to accommodate our continued growth.
