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 Coordinator
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 Coordinator
Andrew & Jackie Gowins
Jackie and I have been volunteering at NHA with the youth for 3 years now. We’re excited to see what God has in store this summer and for the future! We both have worked with youth since being in high school. Our passion is to see youth grow both spiritually but also personally.
We know God has a special calling over our lives and we believe we are exactly where He wants us to be! If you have a youth, grades 6th-12th, we would love to meet them and have them be a part of this amazing experience with us!
