Meet Our Staff
Lead Pastor
Lance & Angela Loven
 
God called us years ago to become one of Jesus most passionate lovers (followers).  We have lived this calling by serving on the pastoral staff at New Life Assembly (Kearney, NE), as Chi Alpha District Director for Nebraska, and on the pastoral staff at Christ Church (Fort Worth, TX). It has been our great joy to serve as lead pastor of New Heights Assembly since August 2010.  We have 4 wonderful kids: Avalon, Savanna, Kaitlin, and Josiah.
Children’s Pastor
Mark & Kelly Putnam
 
My wife and I have led the children’s ministry at New Heights since September of 2012. We have a daughter whose name is Jocelyn, and another on the way. We have a heart for God and a heart to help children grow in their walks with God. God called me to the ministry of working with children when I was on a hillside in Romania, where I was on a mission trip working with orphans and abandoned children. Before coming to New Heights I taught preschool for seven years at New Life Assembly in Kearney Nebraska. While I was there, I also was mentored for seven years under Pastor Eric Rozean, the children’s pastor that was there at New Life. I helped in every way, learning many things about leading a children’s ministry. I love bringing the gospel to life in a fun way for the children. My heart is to serve and to teach the love of God to the children of New Heights!
Youth Pastor
Matt & Michelle Casey
 
I’ve been serving New Heights Assembly, in the area of youth ministry, since October 2011. I was officially put on staff in May of 2017. My beautiful wife Michelle and I have been married for 18 years. We have three amazing daughters, Kristine 26, Alex 22, and Kerstin 13. My ministry vision is to lead students to Jesus, grow their walk in Christ and invest in their lives. My interests and hobbies are boating, golfing, riding my bike, spending time with my family, and reading about history.
