Our Leadership

Believers who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances in the building of a local church deserve to have confidence in church leadership. People are looking for leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives. You can find our leadership structure below.


1.  We are guided by the Leadership Team.

The Leadership Team is led by the Lead Pastor. This team oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. These leaders serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church. The Leadership Team is selected by the Lead Pastor. The Leadership Team may serve as Staff Elders.

The City North Church Leadership Team members are:

Andrew Scholz
Mark Tenney
Mike Durst
Kyle Somerfeldt
Rachel Somerfeldt
Laria Stinson
Vanessa Scholz

2.  We are protected by Trustees.

The Trustees are members of the congregation who oversee the finances and direct the provision of the facilities needed by the church. They provide counsel to the Leadership Team regarding the major financial commitments of the church. The Trustees serve as Non-staff Elders.

The City North Church Trustees are:

Mike Durst
Jon Barleycorn
Phillip Stinson
Kim Scholz

3.  We are strengthened by overseers.

The Overseers are pastors of other churches who love City North Church and are willing to provide spiritual protection to the church. They may be called in to help in accountability matters relating to the Lead Pastor if requested by the Pastors or Trustees. The Overseers serve as Apostolic Elders.

The City North Church Overseers are:

Pastor Chris VanBuskirk – Centerpoint Church, Chillicothe, Ohio
Pastor David Hutsko – New Life Church, Pismo Beach, California
