Meet Our Team

Scott Marshall | Lead Pastor

Scott has served as a pastor for almost 25 years and loves what he does. Leading people toward Jesus and into a better tomorrow is what excites him. He is married to his college sweetheart, Andrea, and together they have 3 energetic kids—Hudson, Corban & Karrington. Scott loves spending time with his family, doing almost anything outdoors, working out (stress relief!) and trying not to lose digits doing woodworking and creative projects, while also working to keep his street cred as a foodie.

Larry Page | Student & Admin Pastor

Larry Page (LP) has served as a Student Pastor for 25+ years. He graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University (BA double major in Religion & English) & Baker University (Masters of Liberal Arts) a long, long time ago in a galaxy far away. His daily pursuit, apart from Jesus, is delicious meats, cold Mountain Dew, strong coffee and authentic southern sweet tea! If he isn’t hanging out with students & youth staff, you can find him making jerky, grilling meat or building something.

What drives LP is to point students and their families in Jesus’ direction and see Christ fill their lives.

LP and Crystal have been married for over 25 years and have two children: daughter (Lauren) & son (Alex).

Aaron VanStrien | Kids Pastor

Aaron is a 2007 graduate of MNU.  He graduated with a degree in ministry. He has served in churches in Kansas City, Illinois, and Indiana. He came on staff at Wichita First in October of 2020.  He loves his family (wife Diane married since 2006, daughter Naomi 11 and Liam 8), burgers and Green Bay Packers football.
Aaron’s favorite part about kids’ ministry is connecting with the kids and their families. He hopes that the kids will know God loves them and that they will grow in their relationship with Him. One thing he wants our kids to know is that walking with God can be fun and full of adventure!
