meet the staff

  • Steve Greene – Lead Pastor

    Steve is so thankful to be a part of a church that is making a difference in the lives of others. Lead pastor since 2002, he loves the privilege of sharing the Word of God with The Point on a weekly basis. He and his wife, Laurie, enjoy quality time together and with their three married children and their grandchildren. Any spare time is spent on his motorcycle, traveling, or just being outdoors. Ask him about his first car (purchased when he was 13).

  • Steve Barrett – Congregational Care Pastor

    Steve and his wife, Lodema, have attended The Point since 1996. Ten years later, Steve joined the staff as Congregational Care Pastor. In addition to his work at the church, he is the Hospice and Palliative Care Chaplain at the local hospital and is a certified grief counselor. The Barrett clan includes seven children, nine grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren. He’s an avid reader (three or four books going at all times) when he can find the time.

  • Renee Bogard – Ministry Assistant

    On staff since 2003, Renee’s infectious personality and love for helping people is the perfect combo for the church office. She and Trent, her husband, have two children. Outside of the office, she loves hanging out with her kids and helping her grandson explore his exciting new world. She has a secret desire to be on Chopped, but would need 2 hours, not 20 minutes, to cook.

  • Joel Burbrink – Creative Arts Pastor

    Arriving in 2007 with his wife, Becky, and two children, Joel’s leadership has transformed the worship experience at The Point. He has great passion for creating and developing the context for worship. Beyond family and his ministry role, he loves to antique and go picking! His real claim to fame is being on Oprah’s Favorite Things show. 

  • Annie Ferret – Elementary Coordinator

    She loves running, hiking, shooting hoops, playing soccer (really anything active and challenging). Annie’s hobbies perfectly match the energy she brings to her role as a mama bear to two sweet and energetic little boys and her responsibilities as coordinator of ministries to elementary kids and their families. She is passionate about seeing kids discover who God is and who He created them to be. Born and raised in the Mitten State, this Michigander married Minnesotan Tim in 2011 and eventually landed in the Hoosier state (and we’re certainly glad they did)!

  • Tim Ferret – Family Ministries Director

    What do Prince, Winona Ryder and Tim Ferret have in common? They all hail from Minnesota. Married to Annie, the Ferrets are the proud parents of two sons. They are an active family and enjoy being outdoors. Tim enjoys playing most sports (a huge asset for a guy focused on student ministry)! As far as his loyalties are concerned, he’s an MCU rather than a DC fan. When asked to describe his life, Tim says, “I’m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.” And we say, thank you Jango Fett!

  • Steve Fishburn – Facilities Manager

    Steve never lets the grass grow under his feet (especially now that it’s part of his responsibility)! Retiring from a career with Pepsi in April, 2011, he started on staff at The Point in June of that year. Don’t make the mistake of referring to his current role as “a job”. He loves what he does (and it shows). A lifelong Cubs fan, he also likes to golf and fish. Most of his spare time however, is spent with his wife, Sherri, and their grandchildren.

  • Don Heagle – Custodian

    Don has his custodian responsibilities “in the bag”. After retiring from Hilex Poly where he spent 20 years in the grocery bag production business, he put his experience to use at a local grocer bagging everything from avocados to zucchini. Since joining the Point staff in 2018, Don has shifted from grocery bags to trash bags but his huge heart for people and a desire to serve is what drives this husband (to Julie), dad, grandfather and great-grandfather to make a difference every day.

  • John Holt – Business/Finance Manager

    Moving from Illinois in 2004 to join The Point staff, John enjoys working with a wonderful staff of dedicated Christians. Married to his “sweet Minnesota girl”, Dorian, the Holts have one son. A history buff and lover of classical music, John, along with Dorian, operates a home-school publishing company.

  • Chrissy Hubers – Nursery/Preschool Coordinator

    On staff since February, 2017, Chrissy loves welcoming families to our nursery, connecting with volunteers, holding babies, and having circle time with preschoolers! She and her husband, Neil, have two little ones of their own. A hula hoop aficionado since age 10, she enjoys challenging Point kids to a contest! In her spare time, look for her fishing or riding a tractor, running a marathon, or getting her nails done while drinking a Chai tea.

  • Jeff Lewellyn – Ministries Director

    Joining the staff in June of 2017 as Ministries Director, Jeff provides oversight and leadership for the various ministries and staff at The Point. His particular ministry focus is with small groups and connections. Jeff enjoys the opportunity to work with a variety of leaders and volunteers across the entire ministry spectrum at The Point. Having spent most of his life in and around Indy, Jeff and his wife, Gayle, enjoy the benefits of the smaller community feel of Seymour. Their two, married, adult children and twin grandsons provide great joy. They love to travel and have had a personal police escort out of Monte Carlo.   

  • Deb Weitzel – Ministries Associate

    Deb has been attending The Point since 2012, when she moved to the area from Valparaiso, Indiana. Joining the staff in 2019, she brings the talents of a mind-reader, time-saver, ringmaster, firefighter, and high-wire-walker to her role assisting the Ministries Director and Creative Arts Pastor. In her spare time, you’ll find her enjoying time with her two married daughters and traveling. Want to hear a great story? Ask her about Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
