Brent Wood


Brent was born in Grand Rapids but moved to Indiana while young (and thus, often refers to himself as a Hoosier). He served in ministry in South Bend for over 20 years before relocating himself to Michigan a few years ago. He and his wife Kelly have three kids - two in college, one in high school.

Mark Manzer

executive pastor

Mark is a native Waterford resident who just moved back into town from Petosky. He is a proud dad and grandpa. Mark heads the charge on family ministries, prayer, teaching, and much more.

Lindsay Svacha

children's ministry director

Lindsay is another homegrown talent. She oversees all kids stuff from birth to 5th grade - and is passionate about helping kids connect to adults who love them, and love Jesus!

She's also a wife - and mom to two boys who are committed to keeping her life interesting.

Gary Johnson


Gary heads our financial team - and keeps all of the books in order. A long-time WCCer, we brought him out of retirement to make use of his adminstrative skills.

Brad McKay


Brad has been keeping things running behind the scenes at WCC for many years now - he's one of those "strong and silent" types with a servant's heart. Brad is also one of the co-founders of our "Boiler Room Boys" men's Bible study on Thursday nights.
