Our Staff Team
Larry SheahaN - Lead PASTOR
Larry has served as our Lead Pastor since 2001, and his heart is to see our church make disciples who are passionate for Jesus, raised up to love their neighbors right here in our community and around the globe. Prior to his time at Faith Fellowship, Larry served several churches in WI, MN, and IL as an Associate Pastor and Youth Pastor. He is a graduate of Grove City College (B.A.1989), and Bethel Seminary (M.Div.1996). He and his wife Carol have been married for 29 years, having met on staff during college at a Salvation Army camp for inner-city kids – it was truly love at first sight! They have 3 awesome kids - 2 in college and 1 at Marshfield High School.
Brett Shilton - DISCIPLESHIP
Brett oversees our discipleship ministries for all ages, including oversight of small groups and family ministries (Kids Grove, Bridge 631, Refuge Youth, Pray for Me). His hope is that Faith Fellowship would be a place where each one of us experiences spiritual formation into the image of Christ within community. Prior to joining our staff 5+ years ago, Brett led the family ministries team at his church in the Grand Rapids, MI area. He has also served several churches as a Youth Pastor. Brett is a graduate of Cedarville College (B.A.1997) and Northwest Baptist Seminary (M.Div. 2005). He and his wife Kim keep busy with 5 school-age children.
DAN BORGO - worship ARTS
We are thrilled to have Dan, Erica, and their 2 young children Rowan and Isla join our church family and staff this summer! Dan hails from northern Indiana and has a heart for life-transformational times of worship - to see God glorified, people drawn to Jesus, the Gospel placed on their hearts, and lives transformed in his name. He also brings a heart to raise up the next generation of worshippers and leverage his gifts in tech and graphic design for the kingdom of God. Before his time with us, Dan served several churches in staff, stipend and volunteer roles in worship ministry.
