Senior Pastor Chuck Moore
A graduate of Geneva Colllege and Bethel and Northern Seminaries, Chuck loves to laugh while enjoying life to its fullest. Having grown up in western PA, Chuck maintains his life long loyalties to Pittsbugh based sports teams! Chuck and his wife Marilyn love travelling, “bed and breakfasting,” reading, and casual hiking… yet their biggest joy is the simple joy of hanging out with their children and grandchildren!
Executive Pastor for adult ministries Chris Chambers
I am married to the most awesome person in my life—Pam Chambers. Pam and I have two wonderful daughters, Alyssa and Leslee. We also have an awesome granddaughter Kendyll! I enjoy music, basketball, sports, reading books on leadership and spiritual growth, playing guitar and dreaming of what God can do in our lives! My higher education was at Judson University and Trinity International. My spiritual gifting is in the area of leadership and I enjoy working with people and building leadership skills in people around me.
Children's Director Lisa Thomas
As a mother of three kids (4 if you include Elmo), I know the importance of modeling a relationship with Christ for our children. Watching my own children grow and express their understanding of Christ and what He means to them is incredible, and I want to walk along side you and your children.
I am joining the FBC Children’s Ministry staff with experience teaching both in children’s ministry as well as high school students. I taught high school science for 12 years at a school based in Pennsylvania. In addition to a BS in Chemistry and education, I have a MA in Counseling from Geneva College. Being from Pittsburgh, I love fries on my sandwich, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Heinz Ketchup (it's a Burgh thing!).
Youth Director Emily Laudenslager
I joined the FBC staff Youth Director in January 2019. I am a graduate of Cairn University, and I also have a Masters Degree in counseling. I grew up in Allentown, PA and I am looking forward to becoming part of the Champaign-Savoy-Urbana community. In my free time I like to cook, go to the movies, go kayaking and play softball. I am a big Flyers and Penn State fan but will watch any game that's playing. Lastly, I'm a cat person- I have a mischievous cat named Rogue. I am excited to begin working with students leading them towards Jesus in Illinois!
