Meet The Team

Jesse and Rebecca Lambert

Jesse and Rebecca Lambert

Jesse and Rebecca had very different beginnings, Jesse as a military kid and United States Marine, and Rebecca as a missionary kid and singer/songwriter.  Now the Lord is using them and their stories individually and as a couple to lead others to Jesus.  In the past they have served children, youth, and adults.  

Jesse has been involved in everything from media teams and set-up/tear down to leading men and family groups.  Folks love that he is approachable and kind, and he challenges them to grow as disciples of Jesus and as leaders in their community.  

Rebecca is a gifted worship leader, something she has been involved with since she was a child; she loves to teach others that worship is a lifestyle that affects everyone in our sphere of influence.  

Both of our pastors are anointed speakers, and feel humbled that the Holy Spirit would choose to use them to serve in His church.
Chris and Heidi Schneider

Chris and Heidi Schneider

Chris and Heidi love serving the Body of Christ, both locally and internationally. Once upon a time a long time ago… they met at a mission conference and God brought them together from halfway across the US.  Shortly after starting their family, they both received their pastors’ licenses (2002), and became ordained in 2019.

Chris has served on the council of three churches, one church board,  and one international missions board. He enjoys teaching the Word and making it come alive. He has travelled regularly to speak and encourage churches in West Africa.

Heidi has served in various capacities, Children’s Ministry Director, CARE team, Missions, and prayer teams. Currently she is leading our Women's ministry and serving our Kids.  

The Refuge is so thankful to have this couple on our team!
