Terry & Cyndi Acord
Terry and Cyndi are long-time residents of the Oskaloosa area and have been married for 19 years. Between the two of them they have five grown children (Terry has one daughter and one son; while Cyndi has three girls). In addition, they have a running total of 12 grandchildren.
While they both enjoy retirement, Cyndi enjoys babysitting the grand kids along with reading and Terry likes to fish and help the neighbors.
Terry's faith journey began over 21 years ago with a challenge to God to prove Himself real. Cyndi attended church all her life. Both continued to grow in their faith as they serve both young and old sharing how God has worked in their lives and being an encouragement to those they meet along the way.
Robert & Tani Buchanan
Robert and Tani have married over 25 years and have 3 children. Robert grew up in MN and Tani grew up in MO. They met at Vennard Bible College and have been together in love ever since. Robert teaches math in the Ottumwa Public High School and Tani works in IT dept, at Pella Corporation. We enjoy watching movies, graphing quadratic equations, scrapbooking, photography and dreaming of hunting and pestering our children. The Buchanan's are aware that we are all broken people and it is only by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that we are able to server both God and man.
Rhett & Cristi Parker
I started my relationship with Christ on Easter Sunday 1987 primarily through the incredible influence and teachings of my parents. I have been active in a church in one way or another since that time. I graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University with a degree in youth ministry. I married my beautiful wife, Cristi, July 1, 2017. Cristi has been an active participant of Lifehouse Community Church since it’s beginning. I have been active at Lifehouse since I moved here in 2016. My passions are helping people figure out who God created them to be and find their calling/passions in life and seeing them thrive in their pursuit of Jesus
