THE TEAM

The Visionary staff team being assembled will be men and women of high capacity and even higher character.

  • Jared Nassiff - Lead Pastor

    Jared and his wife Rachel have been divinely called, prepared, and given a burden to reach lost people in DSM by planting new churches in and around the city. They have two beautiful girls: Naomi (3 yrs) & Wrigley (1 yr). Jared has served in vocational ministry in different capacities for the past 8 years, most recently as the Discipleship Pastor at First Capital Christian Church in Corydon, IN.

  • Patrick Willis - Discipleship Pastor

    Patrick and his wife Emily served in full-time Campus Ministry (most recently at the University of Tennessee) for nearly 10 years before joining Direction. Patrick is a life-long learner with a desire to study God's Word and help others understand it more clearly. He is a high-caliber pastor with a unique skillset toward developing systems and detail-orientation with a heart toward disciple-making. They have 3 amazing children who are really good at bringing joy into other's lives: Ben (7 yrs), Moriah (4 yrs), & Asher (2 yr).

  • RaeAnn Pape - Interim Worship Leader


  • Emily Willis - children's Director


  • Cole Netten - Content Creator


  • CHURCH PLANTER RESIDENT

    By the time we launch, we will have a full-time staff member on the team who we will be raising up for the sake of sending them out to launch another church in 2-5 years!

    We want to multiply ourselves and be a part of growing the Kingdom of God!
