Northwest is led by God and by those chosen to be in leadership positions. Our ministerial and support staff share their deep love for God and people.
Ministerial and Support Staff
Randy Armstrong, preaching minister
I have been in ministry for over 40 years (yes, I am old). I am married to my lovely wife, Linda for over 26 years and we have 4 children and 5 grandchildren. I received my BA in Bible and Communications from Lipscomb University in Nashville and a MS in Management. I love the study and preaching of God's Word. Ministry is always about blessing people with a dynamic picture of our gracious and holy God and our loving Savior, Jesus!
I want to help you see Jesus through the message each Sunday as well as providing you with opportunities to deeper relationships with Gods people. If you have any questions please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org You will also find me on Facebook and Instagram.
Kevin crossland, youth and Family minister
"I have been the Youth Minister at Northwest since the summer of 2016. In that time I've gotten married to my lovely wife Anna and had my energetic daughter Mikaela. My biggest passion is teaching the Bible. It's a daunting book when you're young and understanding it goes far beyond the first time you read it. Helping the stories of Jesus and all those who led to him come to life is what I strive for. Of course, I wouldn't be a Youth Minister if I didn't also like hosting fun events, trying too hard to beat my teens no matter the game we play, and eating pizza! I want to help your teen have fun, begin their lifelong journey of loving Jesus, and make friends they can continue that journey with. Contact me at email@example.com or nwestyouth on instagram."
Carin Mahkovtz, Administrative assistant
I have been a member of Northwest for 20+ years and stepped into the role of administrative assistant in 2022. After being a public-school teacher for 24 years this has been a welcome change for me and my family. Jason and I will celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in 2023. I am thankful for my loving, faithful husband with whom raising our two children in Christ has been a joy. I have a varied skill set, with expertise in art, photography, graphic design, as well as business. I aspire to be a lifelong learner both in my everyday skill sets and in my love of the Lord. I strive to be a blessing to the Northwest body as they are to me and to the greater community. Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
