Hi, I'm Brook, and this is my wife, Cyndy, and our granddaughter, Emerson. I'm the lead pastor here at Bear Creek! I love being the lead pastor here at Bear Creek and I'm passionate about getting you involved in this warm, welcoming, and inclusive community. My passion is to help folks say "yes" to a God who has said "yes" to you at your first breath of life! And to invite you to join me and our Bear Creek family and friends reach out to folks and places that are hurting in our world. Here at Bear Creek we strive to a part of God's "light in the darkness." Part of that "light" is trying to have some fun together! No matter what we are doing, we try to do it in a way that we lift spirits! I can't wait to get to know you and get you connected to all the great people here! You are going to feel better about YOU when you get involved at Bear Creek! If you ever want to talk give me a call or text me at 605-610-7793. Thanks for dropping by! Facebook F Twitter Envelope
Minister of Music and Worship Arts
Welcome to Bear Creek, fellow travelers! My name is Will Rand and it is my great joy and delight to serve this congregation as the Minister of Music and Worship Arts. We are so glad you are here. We want to share this life with you and find moments of gathering, connection, and divine encounter together. As we journey together, I invite you to come sing, play, and dance with us! We share this life as creatives, artists, and joyful companions here at Bear Creek. Whatever gifts you feel called to offer, please reach in and connect. Let’s dance in the Spirit together!
Come say hi! I would love to help you plug in and get connected to ministry, or if you're already connected, to support you as best I can! My passion is to equip and empower people to grow closer to Jesus. I have an MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary, am ordained as an American Baptist Pastor, am a certified Spiritual Director, and love to be hands-on creative and organizing, so this job is perfect for me! I've have been working in churches for decades. I am married to David, and we have an adult son, Jonathan.
Many from our church family help throughout the week, show up to serve others, and lend a hand for special events. These are just a few of the friendly faces of our congregation doing what they love...
From supporting our neighbors to standing up for others' rights to making neck coolers on a hot day, this is an important part of our history and dedication to our community.
Each year we open our parking lot up to the community to provide a fun & free Halloween event. Our church members love to dress up, pass out candy, decorate their cars, and provide fun games for the kids to explore.
We have dozens of volunteers jump in and help when VBS happens each summer! Fun craft stations, feeding kids, playing games outside, singing along with kids...It all takes energy, a love for children, and a heart that wants to teach our young ones about the beauty of God.
