Steve Chiles, Senior Pastor
"Hi! Thanks for checking us out! I've been the Senior Pastor at Shartel since January 2009. It was a true joy for my wife and me to return to OKC where we began full-time ministry so many years ago. Do you want to know a little bit about me Okay, I love being a pastor; I love our Shartel church family, and I love our OKC Thunder! If you don't believe me, just come check out my office sometime. I'll be happy to show it to you personally anytime you come to visit us here, and I hope you'll do exactly that REAL SOON! Just look for the guy who's doing all the talking up front. That'll usually be me. God bless!"
Janet Russell, Administrative and Executive Pastor
"After serving in Children’s Ministry for 12 years in Arizona I was called to Oklahoma. Some say I must be crazy to move from AZ to OK. Tornado season does make me question my decision. I truly have come to love Oklahoma; the people are so warm and friendly. Although, the bugs and snakes I could certainly do with out. One of my greatest loves in my life is being a children’s pastor. Two of my most wonderful blessings are my son and my daughter. I love hiking and working out at the gym, scrap booking and watching movies. I need to rekindle my love of working out and get back to the gym NOW! I am honored to be a part of the Shartel team and look forward to meeting you!"
Rachel Mosher, Worship Pastor
"Hebrews 4:16 NIV says, “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace to help us in our time of need.” My hope and prayer at Shartel is that you experience an authentic time worshipping our Creator. Music is a gift from the Lord, and I am honored to lead others into His presence each week! My husband and our family have been at Shartel for over 10 years now, and we are so thankful for our church family and the friends that we’ve made here.
Sarah Norris, Children’s Pastor
One of the best feelings is watching a child's face light up with excitement, and even more so when that excitement comes from learning about and knowing God better. I have been so blessed to be the Children's Pastor at Shartel since 2016, and I find such joy in what I do and who I serve. Having graduated from MACU with a degree in Pastoral Care, I was called to ministry my freshman year in college and have never looked back. A little more about me: I have two dogs, Boston and Cas, that are both uber goobers. I enjoy cooking and will mix up recipes to come up with something new and different. I believe a genuine smile and kind word can turn around someone's day. I love to sing with abandon. I make it a point for children to feel they are known and loved. I strive to live a worship-filled life. Did someone say "Puppy playdate??"
Will Huebner, Student Ministries Pastor
I have been in Youth Ministry since 2009 and have been at Shartel Church of God since 2016. It’s me, my wife Stephanie, daughter Maelynn, and a crazy doggy named Hezzy. I have an unreasonable love for Batman. (I own 200 Batmobiles.) He is the hero I relate to most. A boy hurt as a child doing everything he can so that other kids don’t ever have to go through what he went through (Youth Ministry in a nutshell). I cannot see myself doing anything other than serving and discipling young believers. I have a passion for the word of God, what it means to me personally, and how it can positively impact the world and everyone’s life. My only accomplishments or qualifications that matter to me is that I am a broken dude who seeks to love his wife well, raise his daughter right, and be found by Jesus as a close friend.
Marvin Middlebrooks, Pastor of Senior Adults and Pastoral Care
Marvin works with our Senior Adults in helping to provide leadership with the planning and implementation of their programming and serve as our staff point person overseeing the care of our members. He will help to coordinate all of our volunteers who are serving in our hospital and shut-in visitation. Marvin and his wife Janice have been long time members of Shartel. Please give Marvin a warm welcome as he steps into this new role!
Jonathon Thompson, Pastor of Communications
"It's great to be a member of the Shartel Team! I have been on staff since 2010. It is wonderful to work at Shartel and be a part of this amazing team as we reach our community for God. My position has grown and changed since I began at Shartel as the part-time Ministry Assistant. I now oversee our print and online communications, manage the website, and work on various other things. My wife, Morgan and I are graduates of Mid-America Christian University. Our son Clay is too adorable. We also have 3 great dogs, Oz a Black Lab, Jazzy a Husky/Lab mix, and Max an Australian Shepherd."
