Brad Knetsch: Ford Campus Pastor

George Davis III: Ford Worship Director

We all play a vital role in worship. God is enamored by your voice, instrument, dance, spoken word, painting, prayer and peaceful contemplation. In my role as Worship Director I provide vision and oversight to worship and tech teams and all forms of creative expression. It is my prayer that we live daily lives of unrestrained worship & praise to God that are contagious and make HIS name BIGGER. I’m truly driven to see people encounter God through the arts and creating space where freedom and authenticity are at the core of worship. So, “Join me in spreading the news; together let’s get the word out”- Psalm 34:3 (MSG). [Email]

Joanna DeMoor-Tannor: 415 Franklin Community Director

Joanna DeMoor-TannorAs our church steps into God’s call through the 415 Franklin project, I serve as the point person for construction and design, the “Setting the Table” fundraising campaign, our partnerships with site organizations, and the connection of the project to our congregation and neighbors.

Jo Anna Kelly: Pastoral Care Coordinator

I’m passionate about emotional and spiritual health. Connection in the body of Christ is so important, so I’m excited to help connect the Ford family to Pastoral Care resources for support, prayer, and guidance. I believe that God’s grace and love are modeled in powerful ways when we come alongside others in their pain to simply listen. When we experience loss or when we rejoice in new adventures, we seek out those who are significant to us to share in those moments. My hope is to help build support networks within the church to that end. [Email]

Lynnae Pickens: KSSN Community School Coordinator

I support our brilliant students, their dedicated parents, and the amazing staff at the Gerald R. Ford Academic Center. I support them by bridging the gap between resources in our community and the families at school, and I help to lower absences and improve attendance. I also strive to make sure their academic, physical, and emotional needs are being met at school and in the home. I truly believe “it takes a village” and with a village supporting the students, they can achieve anything. So if you’d like to be a part of this village by tutoring, volunteering, mentoring, or providing resources, your support is greatly appreciated. Contact: or 616-819-7581.

Ray Russell, Jr.: Ford Director of Children & Youth Ministries

It is my absolute joy to serve parents and students by ushering in a fresh revelation of what a healthy relationship with God and with others looks like. Discipling students in the reality of God’s character and His Word positions us to win BIG in our society today and in the future!
