Charles Leiter - Pastor
Charles Leiter grew up in a nominally Christian home, but was a total stranger to the true gospel until he was nearly 16 years of age. It was then that he heard for the first time that one must be born again in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. That night, through the powerful convicting work of the Holy Spirit, he was given a glimpse of his lost condition and of the surpassing glories of Christ as the divine Savior of lost sinners. Charles lives in Kirksville, Missouri, with his wife, Mona and their five children. He has served as co-pastor of Lake Road Chapel since 1974, and has written two books (Justification and Regeneration and The Law of Christ). He has been a conference speaker in the United States and overseas.
Richard Ochs - Pastor
For over 35 years, Richard Ochs has co-pastored with Charles Leiter in Kirksville, MO. Prior to this, they served together in a mission work in Germany. Richard grew up in rural central Iowa, received his bachelor's degree from Upper Iowa University and his master's degree from Northeast Missouri State University (Truman State). He and his wife, Rene', have five adult children.
Mason Vann - Pastor
Mason grew up with a wonderful family near Birmingham, Alabama. He was rescued from sin in the summer of 1999. After relocating too many times to detail he found himself in Kirksville, MO recovering from a surgery. A short stay turned permanent when he found his wife Rachel. They have three children, Charlie, Bethan, and Jackson.
