Office Assistant, Lee Madura

My husband Ken & I moved to Kimberling City in May of 1986 from Valparaiso, IN. We visited First Christian and knew this was the church for our family. Our two sons, Kenny & Matthew attended Reeds Spring Schools and both went on to college.

We have been involved at FC since 1986. When we started attending it was then referred to a “Little Church”, I taught Sunday School and Ken was an elder for several years. Ken is employed by Home Depot and I have been assisting in the church office for several years.

We love the Ozarks and love this church! I am so happy to be able to serve and work for such a loving body of believers.



Custodian, Bill Johnson

I am originally from West Virginia but have lived in Kansas, Michigan and spent time in Germany in the U.S. Army. I met my wife Debbie in St. Louis where we were married forty years ago before moving to Springfield to attend Missouri State University (then called Southwest Missouri State University). I have a degree in Business Management which came in handy running our business here in Branson West for almost twenty years. I then took a position at Walmart doing maintenance for four and a half years which prepared me to accept this position as custodian of FC. Debbie and I have been members of FC since July 2008.
