Hello, my name is Trent Means. I was born December, 8, 1967 in Concord Ca. I am the oldest of 3 siblings. I was married on August 22, 1992 to my beautiful bride, Sherri Lisech Means. We have 3 children: our daughters, Azelin Joy and Jessalin Grace, and our son, Colton Howard. In 1996 I graduated from Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham, Alabama with a Bachelor of Science. Then we moved to Sun Valley, California where I graduated with a Master’s of Divinity from the Master’s Seminary.
The most significant event in my life is my new birth in Jesus Christ. God began revealing to me at the age of 18 my sinfulness and deceitful heart. How I loved myself and the things of this world. But God being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved me, even when I was dead in my sin, made me alive together with Christ, by grace I have been saved. Jesus took my place. He received the judgment that I deserved. He was forsaken for me. Even to this day, I have become more aware of my sinfulness. However, God continues to grant me grace and mercy through His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ. I love Him because He first loved me. May I be found in Him believing that He is worth more than all the treasures that this world may offer; Jesus is my all in all!
My name is Steve Tucker, I was born Sept. 4th, 1949 in Mountain Home, AR where I have lived all of my life. I am married to my wife of 37 years, Belinda, and we have 2 children; Russell and Karla. I was raised in church while I was living at home with my parents but I did not come to know, believe in, and trust Christ as my savior until the spring of 1989.
At the age of 39 God opened my heart to the glorious good news of Christ by His grace and He has continued with me as I grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. I love my church family at (SGF), and I am very grateful and honored to serve them and to worship with them on a regular basis
The Lord convicted me of my need for the Saviour while in my late twenites. I have been married to my Proverb 31 wife for 46 years. We have 2 children. Our son Scott, along with his wife Mary Jane, is the pastor of the Parker Roe Bible Church near Joliet, Illinois.
Our daughter Diahanne and her Husband Paul are involved with Redeemer Fellowship in Kansas City, Missouri. Paul and Diahanne have 2 children, Timothy and Emilee. Scott and Mary Jane have 6 children, David, Daniel, Kathryn,Caleb, Kassandra and Chloe.
This church is a blessing to me and my wife. It is a privilege to serve here among friends, and to be an elder. Diahanne and I have been married for over 25 years. We have two grown children, a daughter-in-law, and our first grandchild is on the way.
I came to trust in Jesus as a young child and was blessed to be raised in a Christian home where following Christ was as normal at going to work or eating a PB&J sandwich for lunch. Through the years, the Lord continues to show me what it means to lean upon Jesus, to abide in Him and to live a gospel-centered life in community with other believers.
I enjoy one-on-one discipleship with men, music that teaches and exalts Christ, and I love to study & teach the Bible with a view to how the whole story connects to the cross of Christ. I find every day to be a new opportunity to learn that “it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace.” (Hebrews 13:9)
