Meet Our Elders


Most leaders of churches are called “pastors.” While we firmly believe Jesus has given some individuals to the church as pastors (Eph. 4:11), that is not the term used in the New Testament for local church leaders. They were normally called elders. Following the New Testament pattern, we refer to the leaders of our local congregations as elders.


Kal Bergendahl

Kal Bergendahl was born and raised in Kenosha, WI. He received his ‘wake-up call’ and became a Christian in 1996 after his father passed away from cancer. Kal has a Bachelors Degree in music. In 2001, along with Teresa Reynolds, he founded Living Light School of Worship, a nine-month discipleship and music program that has since trained students from all over the world. In addition to being a Co-Director of the school, Kal was appointed as an elder in Living Light Pleasant Prairie in 2010.

Kal and his wife, Shanon, were married in 1999 and have four children: Judah, Arden, Avery, and Adelynn.

In 1999, he moved to Kenosha, WI to work for the church and was appointed as an elder in 2005. In 2014 he was set in as an Ephesians 4 Pastor (Shepherd) releasing him to work alongside John and Scott in serving and equipping the churches to care for one another. He enjoys all aspects of helping people to grow in the gifting and calling of God, and he particularly likes working with (and training others to lead) small groups.

Homegroups

Homegroups

Our homegroups are small groups, ranging in size from 10 to 20 people, that meet once a week in the evening. In the informal atmosphere of the home, we can talk about what God is teaching us (individually and corporately), study the Bible, pray together, worship God in song, support and encourage one another, help with practical needs . . . the list goes on!
