    LEAD PASTOR

    My name is Mike Cool and together with my family I am the Lead pastor at Lifepointe church. I am married to Alisa and have three children, Macy, Grant and Jaden. Alisa is a full time mom, worship pastor and owns her own Real Estate business. I came to the Prescott area in 1986 . I started full time ministry in 1990 and have been at Lifepointe church for 13 years. I enjoy sports of all kinds, flying, food and laughing and living life with friends! I have a passion to be a wholehearted follower of Christ, a husband that loves and honors his wife and a dad that passes on an authentic relationship with Jesus to my children! I believe God has called me to equipped and encourage the church to become the “movement” of Jesus Christ in our nation and around the world! My life verse is found in Matthew 6:33 – But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”! In essence the cause of my life is to carry on the cause of Christ in my generation!

    EXECUTIVE PASTOR

    Hi, I'm Jeff and I'm married to my beautiful wife DiAnne. I met her in college and we have determined to live out God in our everyday life with our three kids, Bria, Allie, & Kayler. We are real, just like you - we run from event to event with our kids and try to keep up with life as a family. We have fun and enjoy being together. DiAnne and I started ministry in Washington State right out of college. We determined to be very real about life and transparent in ministry. A couple of years later, we came to Arizona to work in the family business for about eight years. Since that time we returned to pastoring and have set our focus on helping others find the incredible closeness and power of God in prayer, as well as teaching young adults core values to live life by through Lifepointe Vanguard Interns. We have three great kids that make life really fun and fresh. Di and I do what we do because we truly believe that when people really get what God is all about, no one in their right mind would would refuse His incredible offer of Love, Acceptance, and Forgiveness. We love to see people get out of lies and onto what they were created for...

    My name is Ryan Ingram, and I am the youth pastor here at Lifepointe Church.  I’ve been married to a wonderful woman named Sarah for 5 years, and I have a sweet one year old named Elise. Sarah works part-time as a physical therapist and full-time as a mom.  I moved to Prescott Valley in 2010 to become a Math teacher at Bradshaw Mountain Middle School in Dewey.  I’ve been on staff at Lifepointe since the spring of 2013. I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Colorado State University and am currently working on ministry credentials.  I love working with kids and am so excited to see the way God’s moving in the life of young people in the Quad City area. My heart’s passion is to see God impact the lives of our young people!  I love to see young people engaged in mentoring and disciple-making relationships with their peers and the generations ahead of them.  Most importantly, I love to see what mentoring relationships produce: mature followers of Jesus who actively love and serve a world that desperately needs to know God!

    Hi I’m Theresa Harcey.  My husband Mark and I have been involved in family support ministries, Christian Education, and foster/adopt care for many years.

    I’m so blessed to have spent the last 17 years directing and teaching LifePointe’s Growing Kids Preschool. My desire is fulfilled in partnering with parents and seeing children of all ages grow to be mighty men and women for God.

    HOPES ATTIC DIRECTOR

    Hi I’m Wayne Doerkson. 

Our Story

 

Bradshaw Mountain Christian Assembly was started through the faith of the founding pastors Leigh & Jodi Metcalf...


In September of 1997 we held our first unofficial meeting in our newly purchased 5 acres of property which included a feed store and a single wide mobile home. We were in the process of remodeling both when we held our first meeting with 40 people who were interested in becoming part of a new church. We held our “grand opening” service on November 7th with 126 people which was every chair we could fit in the building.  During the first six months we experienced a lot of growth and immediately began enlarging our sanctuary to seat 220 people.

 

Growing Kids Preschool

We also started “Growing Kids Preschool” and built a building for our preschool and Sunday children's ministry.
 

 

Building Again

After going to three weekend services we built a 17,000 sq. foot facility that included an 800 seat sanctuary, café, classrooms and offices and we purchased six additional acres for future growth.

 

Reaching Out

Part of our vision has always been to be a blessing to our community. One way of doing that was to open “Hopes Attic” Thrift Store with 5,000 square feet that generates funds that are used to help the community.
 

 

Sending out Springs Church

We have believed we could more effectively reach the Mayer & Spring Valley community where many families of our church live so we helped plant Springs Church at Mayer High School in Spring Valley.

 

Expanding Vision

We realized that the name Bradshaw Mountain is geographical to the Prescott Valley area and we needed to adjust our name to facilitate one common identity as a covering over all the ministries and locations, so we developed “Lifepointe Church" to prepare us for more church plants and/or campuses.
