Erik Gustafson has a passion to see the local church impact the life of a community with the presence of Jesus. With over twenty-five years of ministry experience, Erik draws from his spiritual gifts of evangelism and teaching to challenge God’s people towards spiritual growth and maturity. His heart’s desire is to see the local church take the gospel of Jesus into everyman’s world within the flow of their everyday lives. His desire is to forge a “culture of leadership” within the local church that will effectively minister to both the needs of the LMCC family as well as the surrounding community.
Tanya Rodriguez is a Bridgman native and has loved calling LMCC her home since birth. Having joined the worship team back in 2005, she brought along her husband (an incredible guitarist) in 2006, and her son (solid bass player) in 2014, but only took the helm of the ship in 2016. Her desire is to see her church family enter into God’s presence, leaving healed, restored, renewed and free to do the will of God. She is fond of chocolate, checks the obituaries (just to make sure she’s not in them) more often than Facebook, and she would gladly invite you over if you don’t mind the mess and chaos of four wonderfully energetic boys!
