  • CHRIS ANDERSON - INTERIM PASTOR

    Chris was raised in a Christian home by godly parents and accepted Christ while in grade school.  However, it wasn’t until his time at Cedarville University that he really began to understand what it meant to allow Christ to be Lord of every area of his life.  After leaving Cedarville, Chris entered the business world for 15 years where he worked in a variety of sales and marketing positions.  In 2011 he began working for Liberty Heights Church located in northern Cincinnati. Since joining the team at LHC, Chris has held a variety of positions and his claim to fame is being a “jack of all trades.” However, his greatest passion is teaching others how to allow the gospel to change their lives and to make them more like Christ. Chris has been married to Shannon for 21 years and is blessed to work on staff alongside Shannon who oversees the children’s ministries at LHC. Chris will tell everyone that will listen that his greatest accomplishments in life are his two teenage daughters, Taylor and Rachel. Chris loves the sport of triathlon and spends most of his free time swimming, biking, and running. He is also currently pursuing a master’s degree through Cedarville University.

  • STEVEN KNELL - CHURCH PLANTER

    Steve and his wife Nichole believe that God has called them to step out of their comfort zone to plant a very unique church.  4LIFE Worship is a church with a vision to disciple men and women who are being released from our state's correctional facilities to not only grow closer to the LORD but to also use their testimonies of God's transforming grace to reach their families, friends, and communities.


    Steve and Nichole have been married for 14 years and have three children, Zachary, Ethan, and Kiersten who have played a significant role in the decision to start this new church.
