Lead Pastor Justin Graves

@GravesPrays

Pastor Justin and his wife Ashley have been at Landmark since 6 months after our launch. As a young man, he felt the call of God on his life, and being raised in Strafford, he felt that he could effectively reach the students of this community. After serving Landmark and the Strafford community for nine years as Associate and Ridge Pastor, Pastor Justin transitioned into the Lead Pastor role.

Lead Pastor Justin Graves is also involved in the community holding several positions on various teams and boards. He is also a founding member of the Strafford School Foundation which focuses on improving the lives of less fortunate kids in the school system.

With a burning fire and vision for the community and with Ashley in support, Pastor Justin and the church as a whole are set to turn Strafford and the surrounding cities toward the Lord.

Senior Pastor Wayne Neal

Feeling God's call back to a pastoral position, Pastor Wayne came off the evangelistic field after ten years of traveling globally and founded Landmark in November of 2004. Spear-heading the path of Landmark Church in the first 11 years of its existence as Lead Pastor, Neal founded a church built solidly on Christ that would embed itself in the community and eventually plant a Landmark Church in South Carolina. Feeling the need to slow down a little, Pastor Wayne stepped into the Executive Pastor role of the church, overseeing finances and building projects and appointing Pastor Justin as Lead Pastor of the church.

Currently, Pastor Neal brings the message in a dynamic and often times humorous manner, while delivering a revolutionary word relevant to our times and culture. With the preaching anointing of an evangelist, and the heart of a shepherd, Pastor Neal never misses a chance to help lead you to a stronger relationship with the Lord.

  Ridge Pastor Brian Davis     @PastorBrianDavis    Pastor Brian and his wife Paula have been in ministry for over 17 years. A native of Columbia, South Carolina, Pastor Brian has ministered across the US. He served as youth pastor and worship leader at Faith Assembly in Kernersville, NC. While there Faith Assembly experienced an extended revival lasting for 18 months. Building a relationship with then evangelist Wayne Neal, Pastor Brian left Faith Assembly to help pioneer a work in Strafford, MO, Landmark Christian Center. As associate pastor at LCC, Pastor Brian saw God grow the youth from 3 kids to over 100 kids in three years. Feeling the Lord guiding him back to South Carolina for a season, Brian was sent back home and started a Landmark Church plant in Lexington. That season lasted 9 years and the Lord blessed it mightily. Now, Pastor Brian and his family have rejoined Landmark in Strafford, MO as the Student Pastors once more and are excited to see God's Will unfold!

Landmark Kids Pastor: Melissa White

@MelissaWhite

Melissa White, was called into the ministry at a very young age. In fact, she held her first children’s revival at the age of ten during one of her parent’s crusades. She took her first children’s pastor position while attending Central Bible College. Melissa’s love of people and her passion for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ has opened doors for her to minister in 18 different countries on three continents in all types of ministry. She has conducted conferences for effective children’s ministry for Compassion International – Kenya and the International Christian Assembly in Bangkok, Thailand. She has also taught seminars at CBC and held children’s ministry workshops across the United States.

Melissa and Adam have now joined forces with Landmark Church in the spring of 2016! God has performed many miracles in Melissa’s life to bring her to this place and time. We are excited to see the many kids lives that will be saved under her leadership with Landmark Kids!

Worship Leader: Atlee Wolfard

@AtleeWolfard

Having been involved in worship ministry for over a decade, and in music over two, Atlee and his wife J'aimee help create a comfortable atmosphere for worship. Playing a song takes talent, but bringing an entire team of skilled musicians together, and making each song unique, takes exceptional talent. Atlee and J'aimee have been worship leaders at Landmark since 2009, and have also lead worship in two other churches. Landmark | Worship is growing. With a large team of annointed musicians, we continue to stay on the cutting edge of what God is doing in worship today.

  Creative Director: Joel Burris     @iamjoelburris    Media with a keen eye and a creative heart has always been the idea behind Joel's 10+ years of ministry. Working directly with volunteers on the production side of service, it is a constant goal to continue teaching and mentoring people how to use multimedia as a tool to engage others in worship, activities and more.  Using his film production experience, Joel and his team of volunteers craft the video announcements each week. These announcements are known as "The Social" and feature fun skits to help illustrate the announcements. Film techniques and etiquette are taught to the volunteers on a weekly basis.
