Meet the staff of Tates Creek Christian Church

  • Justin Fluhr

    Senior Minister


    As a native of Kentucky, Justin has served in full time ministry in churches from Indiana to California. He is married to his wife Laura and has two incredible children, Carter and Ava. When he's not at church he's likely to have a guitar or a golf club in his hand. He loves movies, Ale-8 and playing disc golf with his son. He is passionate about helping people find their purpose in life and growing in their relationship with God. 

  • Mason Ballard

    Worship Minister


    The worship of the church is formative. Mason cares about crafting worship gatherings that form disciples into the likeness of Jesus Christ through prayers, scriptures, and participation. Mason came alongside our staff in 2019 as the Contemporary Worship Minister. His passion is seeing the church grow as a community that continually commits to meeting together and to the service of others. Mason enjoys discussing and learning with others about worship—not just music, but worship.

  • Billy Bishop

    Facilities Manager


    Billy has served as our Facilities Manager since 2009.  He is responsible for overseeing the maintenance and cleaning of the church grounds and building.  He and his wife, Cindy, have been members at Tates Creek since 2009.  Outside of work, Billy enjoys fishing and teaching karate. 

  • NAthan Campbell

    Student Minister


    Nathan joined the staff in 2019 and works with junior high through college age students. His passion is Jesus. Every aspect of the student ministry should point toward Jesus no matter what the event is. Nathan fully believes that students are not the church of tomorrow, rather they are the church of today and are vital members of the congregation. Because of this, Nathan hopes to get students involved in serving in areas of ministry throughout the church. When he is not in the office Nathan loves hiking, eating out with friends, or watching whatever soccer game he can find.
