In keeping with our team approach to church leadership, we currently have a team of teachers and preachers that rotate every Sunday. Below is our current speaking team.
Ed Green, is our Pastor of Congregational Care and Equipping, he keeps a pulse on the congregation, as well as coordinating the teaching ministries of the church. Ed and his wife Sally came to us late last year from jobs and ministries in central Illinois. Ed is a graduate of Ozark Christian College and Lincoln Christian Seminary. They have two grown children. Their son and his wife serve in ministry with a church back in Illinois, and their daughter will begin a graduate program this year at a seminary out west. Ed’s desire is that of the apostle Paul: “[Christ] is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me” (Colossians 1:28-29).
Stew Sheckler, is our Pastor of Missional Coaching and Involvement, he coaches the church’s different leaders to live as disciple makers, is our chief story teller, and finds new pathways for our church to live out the mission of the Kingdom in the Miami Valley. He and his wife and their two daughters have been part of BCC since 2013. Stew has been a pastor for 25 years, serving both in churches and with a para-church organization known as The Navigators. In each ministry, God has shown him over and over again the necessity for helping people become disciples who can pass along their walk with Jesus to another person. His entire ministry is centered around imitating Jesus and helping others do the same.

Chris was a staff member at BCC but left to founded a company called Lead Life Big and is passionate about bringing the good news to the business world.

Just in case you didn’t notice, He’s married to a great Children’s Pastor named Kristi.
