Jim and Deborah are the Founders and Senior Pastors of Liberty Church. With a call on their lives to teach God's Word and help people, Pastor Jim began teaching Bible studies in Iowa and Nebraska, and anywhere people would listen. Then God called Pastors Jim and Deborah to Pastor a small church in Omaha. With no money and no building, they accepted the challenge 25 years ago. Only months later they purchased their first church building. Their purpose has always been to help people live better lives, by applying the Word of God to their lives. Pastors Jim and Deborah have been married for 34 years. They are best friends, work together in the ministry and have four children, Micah, James, Mark, and Mercedes.
You have probably heard that God takes all the things you done previously and puts them together to where you are at now. This would apply to Mike Schab, Liberty's Property Manager and Care Pastor. Whether it was a factory or ministry job, or self-employment, each task helped develop people and helps skills that are put to use daily at Liberty Church. Mike has been married for 32 years to his wife Margie. They have been associated with Pastors Jim and Deborah for 28 years. Mike and Marj have 2 daughters, Jeanette and her husband Robert, with grandson Robbie and Amy with her husband Troy and grandchildren T.J. and Emma.
Mercedes and William are the Lead Pastors at Liberty Church. They have been happily married since May 1, 2015 and enjoy every minute they spend as a married couple. Mercedes oversees 1st Impressions which includes; greeters, guest services, salvations, donations and more. Our volunteer team is here to serve and greet you as you first step inside our building, because our desire is that you feel welcomed and right at home here at Liberty Church. She also serves in various other ways in our church offices and in the Underground School of Ministry.
Brandon Kerr began ministering at Liberty as the director of The Underground School of Ministry. Brandon was instrumental in the development of the USM since the program's inception in 2007 and felt that the Lord was calling him to a new place in ministry in 2012. In June of 2013 Ps Brandon answered that call and was installed as Youth Pastor of G2:20. He desires to see a generation turn their eyes towards God and devote themselves to Him. Discipling young people and catapulting them to their full potential in Christ is Brandon's passion. In 2015 Brandon became the Worship Pastor at Liberty Church with a desire to help bring people into the presence of God and then step away to allow them to experience what true relationship with Jesus can be. Brandon has been married to his wife Charity since March 1, 2014! He currently lives in Omaha, NE with his wife Charity as they enjoy every second they spend serving young people!
Brandon and Charity are the Family Pastors at Liberty Church. They have a desire to help the children of Liberty Church learn what it means to be a Godly person. They desire to teach the Word of God in simple and practical ways that will also empower parents in raising their children. Brandon and Charity have been married since March 1, 2014 and love every minute of it!
