Our Leadership Team

  • Durant Kreider

    Durant Kreider has been our Lead Pastor since 2002.  He has been married to his Bible-college sweetheart, Boni, for 29 years!  Durant is also serving the Foursquare Atlantic District as an Associate Supervisor. His passion is helping people grow and achieve their full potential by helping them hear the voice of the Lord and then encouraging them to live by faith, doing as the the Lord instructs. He is often meeting with Jesus very early in the morning and loves spending time with Him in the sanctuary on his Monday Sabbath. When he isn't coordinating Serve the City events in Chesapeake or investing in his marriage to wife, Boni, and their 8 children, you will most likely find him in his garage tinkering on an old car or Jeep.  -EMAIL HERE-
