Meet the Shepherds

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds[a] and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. - Ephesians 4:11-16

Joseph Spurgeon- Lead Pastor

Joseph grew up in a Christian home but like Jonah ran from the call to pastoral ministry in his early 20s.  God used several things to bring him to repentance which included Joseph stumbling upon John Calvin's Institutes of Christian Religion, and hearing a song by Keith Green called "Asleep in the Light," while taking trip to the Philippines.

Joseph Spurgeon is the lead Pastor at Sovereign King Church and holds ordination with Evangel Presbytery. Joseph is the husband to Rowina and the father of 7 children, Jasmine, Arriana, Charles, Calvin, Rocky, Ezra, and Hezekiah. He is the author of It's Good to be a Boy! and It's Good to be a Girl!. He is passionate about preaching, pastoral care, and ending abortion.  Joseph cohosts the Patriarchy Podcast on the Fight Laugh Feast Network.

Mark Cox- Ruling Elder

Mark grew up in Charlestown, Indiana. In his adult years, he moved away to serve in the United States Marine Corps as a military policeman and upon honorable discharge, sought to raise his family in his home state. When God called Mark to follow Christ, God used the birth of his oldest daughter to awaken in him a love of life and a fear of the Lord that led to his conversion. Mark is married to Melissa, and together they have homeschooled all 4 of their children: Caitlin, Shawn, Danielle, and John Mark. The love of life and liberty has brought Mark interest in the political field to preach to the civil magistrates as well as his local neighbor.

Aaron Sabie- Ruling Elder

Aaron Sabie loves to serve his King, Jesus Christ. While having grown up in a typical Christian home where he made a profession of faith, walked an aisle, and uttered a “sinner’s prayer” at a young age, it was not until the age of 35, after years of alcohol abuse and sexual immorality, that Aaron became a true Christian. Having a salvation that is 100% of God, the gospel has radically changed Aaron's life, and continues as a daily reminder of his utter dependence on the grace of God. He is the husband to Kellie and the father of 3 children: Madelyn, Henry, and Samuel . Aaron served in the US Navy , worked in the field as a construction electrician for several years, and currently is self-employed as a contractor.
