OUR SPEAKING TEAM: We believe everyone has been given different talents. Some are leaders, others are shepherds, even others are entrepreneurs. We shouldn’t just highlight those abilities but give space for them to be shared in the church.

Meet Our Speakers

We have a group of teachers that are made up of both professional pastors (staff members) and lay leaders (non-staff members). It is important for us to empower everyone at BCC, that’s what we mean by being on the journey together. We have people among us who have the gift of teaching and we want them to use it. Here are our teachers:

Stew Sheckler

Speaker

Stew has been a pastor 1993 and worked with BCC since 2013. He’s usually pretty cool, that is when he's not nerding out over comic books or some weird Lord of the rings reference that no one gets. He is honored to be married to to his wife Dawn and has two unique daughters, you might see them around. Abbi is a Freshmen at Bellbrook High School and Madison comes home some times from University of Cincinnati where she's studying psychology. Stew is our resident coach. His heart is to see people discipled like Jesus discipled his first followers. That isn’t always an easy task so when you need a hand or someone just to encourage you in what God is doing through you, Stew will try be there to help you out. If you ever need to reach Stew for coaching or to see a Superhero movie or anything football related or especially to watch a UK basketball game feel free to text or call (he prefers texts) 937-430-9777 or stew@beavercreekchristian.org

Isaac Seevers

Speaker

Isaac Seevers and his wife live in Jamestown where they raise their three kids. He is the Superintendent at Greeneview Local Schools. They have attended BCC for many years and have enjoyed serving on the worship team and in the children’s area. Isaac grew up as a preacher’s kid (and grandkid), but he chose education as his mission field. He enjoys golfing, fishing, watching/playing sports, and coaching his kids’ sports teams.

Ed Green

Speaker

Ed and his wife Sally moved here from central Illinois in late 2017 to serve with us. They are “empty nesters” with two young adult children. Their son Samuel and his wife Mykenzie serve with a church in Clinton, Illinois, and their daughter Anna is currently a graduate student at Portland Seminary and lives and works in Joplin, Missouri. As one of our senior staff Ed coordinates our teaching and training opportunities for adults, as well as overseeing ministries that help provide care and nurture for folks who call BCC “home.” His spiritual gifts are teaching and serving, and for those who care about such things, he is a Nine on the enneagram. Ed loves to be outside, fish, and hike, but he also tends to be kind of a sci-fi nerd. He has an almost insatiable sweet tooth and Double-Stuffed Oreos are his kryptonite.
