Noelle became the worship pastor at The Fellowship in November of 2018 and has worked hard to serve her team and her church since then. Prior to being a worship pastor at The Fellowship, Noelle served on worship teams as a vocalist at the churches she attended. Noelle is married to her favorite bass player and has three wonderful boys with whom she gets to share her ministry. Music has been a part of her life from a very young age and she is grateful that the Lord chose to use her in this capacity of ministry.

Ben is extremely passionate about youth ministry and is ecstatic to be able to be obedient to the call of God with the youth.

Nicole spent her formative years in the Church of the Nazarene, deeply engaged in the youth group. From being the NYI treasurer to twice serving as NYI President, she actively participated in various leadership roles. For over 15 years, she has dedicated many hours as one of the church's interpreters, fostering clear communication and sharing the gospel in people’s native language. She has also pursued personal growth, completing 8 modules towards her district license. Her unwavering love for Jesus and passion for guiding young individuals led her to my current role as the college pastor, where she aspires to be a positive role model for college students, nurturing their spiritual journeys and helping them navigate this difficult but beautiful stage of life.
Prime Time Pastor
Margaret was ordained in the Church of the Nazarene in 1993 on the Southwest Oklahoma District. Oklahoma provided the opportunity for Margaret to serve as a Senior Pastor for several years. This opportunity also led to beginning a local food pantry, which incorporated the assistance from the other local churches. Margaret was also able to begin an active ministry at a local work-release program which prepared inmates to be more able to adapt to life once they were released from incarceration. Margaret was trained and approved to pick up inmates who wanted to attend church and was able to assist them in their spiritual growth. Some of the families of the inmates would drive for hours each Sunday to attend church with their children.
Margaret left the Pastoral ministry to pursue Chaplaincy and worked as Hospital Chaplain for more than two years. During this time, Margaret completed her Bachelor of Science degree at Friends University. Most recently (2021), Margaret completed her Master of Divinity at Nazarene Theological Seminary.
Margaret has a mode of operation for ministry that goes like this: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can.” (Attributed to John Wesley) She ministers to others in her apartment complex as well as teaching Bible study in that setting. She asks the Lord how to minister to others in ways that are not seen as typical ministry. Her goal is to faithfully serve her Heavenly Father daily.
The Fellowship is a warm and friendly congregation for all people, no matter their age or ethnicity. The Prime Time group has many opportunities for fellowship and ministry. Please join us!
