Leadership

Pastors & Staff

Pastor Scott & Donna Skeens

Lead Pastors

Donna and I became Lead Pastors of Sheffield Church in April 2010. In 2019, I reached a personal milestone and received a Master’s Degree in Church Ministries from the Pentecostal Theological Seminary. 22 years of pastoral ministry have taught us an amazing journey about leadership, discipleship, people, life, and the church. My heart’s desire is to see unsaved people come to Christ, grow in their renewed faith, and find their place to serve in the church. To me, these are the greatest successes in all of life.

Pastor Nathan & Alissa Harvey

Associate Pastors

Nathan & Alissa have been married since 2015 and have two wonderful children who fill their lives with laughter, energy, and love. Pastor Nathan is currently pursuing a bachelors degree from Covenant Theological Seminary in Ministry Leadership. Alissa attended Lee University and obtained a degree in Psychology and then completed her masters degree at Tiffin University for healthcare administration and currently works for Firelands Regional Health System. They both have found meaning, identity, and a fullness in their relationship with Christ that they strive to lead others to.

Pastor Jason & Stephanie Burrer

Youth Pastors

Our family of 5 has attended Sheffield Church of God since 2011. We became Youth leaders in 2015 and began our role as Youth Pastors in 2017. We wed in 2000 and since then God has blessed us with 3 wonderful boys, Sabastian, Tristan and Coltan who all love the Lord and serve him daily. Sabastian has graduated from Valor Christian College with an associates degree in World Missions and works at the Church of God Smoky Mountain Children’s home. Our son Tristan attends Open Door Christian School, and is the drummer on the praise and worship team here at Sheffield Church of God. Our youngest Coltan attends Open Door Christian School and is an active member in Rooted Student Ministries.

As Youth Pastors our mission is to inspire young people to be transformed by the message of Christ. To equip young people with the tools to be life long servant leaders as disciples of Christ.

Pastor Shawn & Lisa Justice

Children's Pastors

Shawn & Lisa Justice have been raised working in the church in various ministries. They have three children and have enjoyed parenting them and having them involved in activities within in the church. Shawn & Lisa used to serve on our Youth Leadership team before transitioning into the Children's Ministry. They are excited and have a deep desire to see a generation of children raised up to seek after God's heart and grow His kingdom. 

Pastor Dave & Carrie Munger

Worship Pastors

Carrie and I have been serving in the music ministry at Sheffield church since 2008. We have a great team working with us to help encourage a Spirit filled, uplifting, worship experience for everyone to take part in. We also enjoy working in other areas of the church so you will see us around the church, participating in events, teaching Sunday school or leading Connect Group ministries. My wife and I live in Elyria with our son Josiah. Josiah is involved in the music ministry, helping in kids church and Rooted Youth Ministries.

I have a Master’s degree in Business Administration with a strong engineering background. I work as an operations manger in the electronics division at R.W. Beckett corporation in North Ridgeville. Carrie and I completed the Ministerial Internship Program and I became an ordained bishop through the Church of God in March of 2019. We both have been involved in leading worship for many years prior to serving at Sheffield and we are excited to be able to continue that work at our church.

Diana Sauer

Office Admin

My husband, Dennis, and I pastored a church plant in Sheffield for 5 years.  In 2010, while on a summer sabbatical, we learned that Sheffield Church of God had a new pastor and decided to “take a look”.  We‘ve been here ever since!
Dennis and I are ‘retired’.  I love that word.  It conjures up a picture of such a quiet, peaceful life.  It does not however, describe the life we live.  We have 4 grown children, and as you may know, if you have adult children, the word ‘grown’ never really describes your children.  We also have 5 wonderful grandchildren, ranging in ages 13 to 19.  They bring such joy to our life.  We certainly understand the saying “If I’d known Grandchildren were so much fun I would have had them first!”

About the same time that I lost my ‘big, important corporate job’ due to downsizing, the church secretary position became available.  Pastor asked if I would consider filling the position.  I’ve been here ever since!  (See a pattern here?)  Seriously though, this position affords me the opportunity to meet and interact with wonderful, loving people who call this church home, people who love God and each other.  I also get to see new people come and find that ‘something special’ they’ve been searching for—just like we did!

A Letter From Pastor Scott

Greetings From Pastor Scott,

Thank you for checking out our church website!

The church has always been a great influence in my life. As a kid growing up in Cleveland, my dreams were to one day become a major league baseball player. However, things quickly changed as it was apparent God had something else for me. Who could have ever imagined being the pastor of the church where I was first called into the ministry!
My life changed forever on April 3, 1982 when Donna and I united in marriage. Since then we have raised two beautiful daughters-Megan & Rebeka (who look like their mother). Megan is married to Nate Turner. They have given us three precious gifts–grandchildren, Elias, Alexis, & Luke Scott. They serve as missionaries in Scotland. Rebeka and Matthew Botbyl are married and serve at Hope Christian Church-Avon. They enjoy raising (their dogs) Rudy & Sadie.

Donna and I became Lead Pastors of Sheffield Church in April 2010. In 2019, I reached a personal milestone and received a Master’s Degree in Church Ministries from the Pentecostal Theological Seminary. 22 years of pastoral ministry have taught us an amazing journey about leadership, discipleship, people, life, and the church. My heart’s desire is to see unsaved people come to Christ, grow in their renewed faith, and find their place to serve in the church. To me, these are the greatest successes in all of life.

You will get a better idea of who we are as you take time and browse through the church website. However, the best way to get connected with us is to attend one of our services. As you enter the facilities immediately you will find a wonderful group of people, inspirational worship, Word-centered ministry, outstanding programs for children and teens, and friendships that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to Sheffield Church. I look forward to meeting you.
