Meet the Staff

Pastoral Staff

Senior Pastor

Jeff Donelan

Jeff graduated in 2012 with a MA degree in Christan Education from Dallas Theological Seminary. Jeff's calling and passion are to explore how the church can most effectively engage, equip, and encourage people in the discipleship process. Jeff and his wife, Deborah, have two boys, Josiah and Titus. The Donelan household is a big fan of the K State Wildcats since Jeff and Deborah both graduated from K State. After 8 years as our Adult Ministries Pastor, Jeff was officially announced as our new Senior Pastor on April 26, 2020.

Discipleship & Connections Pastor

Joshua Clark

My name is Joshua, and I am married to Courtney Clark.  We have two children: Amelia and August and two Labradors: Fawn and Captain. I serve as the Pastor of Discipleship & Connections for the McCook E-Free campuses. Originally, I grew up in Waterloo, Iowa, but since leaving Iowa in 1996 I have lived in Chicago, IL, Americas, GA, Garden Valley, TX, New Haven, CT, Boston, MA, Erie, PA, Palisade, NE, Colorado Springs, CO and now McCook, NE. I met my wife, Courtney, while serving in YWAM (Youth With a Mission). I am a sucker for new experiences, a hot cup of coffee, and a free t-shirt. I like books, hunting, and physical activities. My family and I enjoy adventures: we like to cook good food, share stories, play board games, travel, and spend time outdoors together.

Sarah Powers

Hi! I’m Sarah! My husband, Adam, and I are raising our 3 kids, Isaiah, Liam, and Anaiah, in our hometown, McCook. I have a diverse business background which has equipped me with a variety of skills and knowledge that I’m excited to put to use in the church. My education includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a focus on Management and Leadership. 


While I enjoy the business pieces of the church, my real joy comes from seeing Jesus transform lives. There is nothing better and no greater honor than to be able to walk with someone as they encounter Jesus and learn to trust and follow him! One of my favorite areas to serve is on our church mission teams and with the Perspectives course.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge; to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish love. For if these things are really yours and are continually increasing, they will keep you from becoming ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately. ~2 Peter 1:5-8
