Meet Our Team

Pastors & Staff

Bernie Norman

Lead Pastor + Elder

There is no greater joy in my life than knowing God and experiencing His love for me each day. I have been forgiven much over the years, and as a result, I have learned to love much. I have found that sharing His love with others is the greatest privilege a man could ever have in his lifetime. I have also learned that the greatest roles I will ever possess in this world as a man are those of husband, father, and grandfather.
Bernie and Gale previously were staff with Family Life in Arkansas, a national ministry for biblically-based marriages and families. Bernie also served as a pastor in Rhode Island for many years. Bernie and Gale are still active supporters of Family Life ministries, which is a great resource for Christian-based family life in the world today. 

Tim Norman

Worship Pastor

There is nothing better than glorifying God and nothing more rewarding than seeing Him work among His people. It is such a blessing to be able to serve Creation Church.
Worship is contagious. I don't think there is much that thrills the heart of God more than hearing his children sing out to Him straight from their hearts. Jesus has made a way for us to praise God 24/7 for all eternity. Let's start today! 

Meet the Deacons.

Chris Booth

No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

We are all special to the Lord and each one of us has a special gift to offer. "Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." - Matthew 9:37-38
