Pastor Scott came to WEFC in 2003 after serving a church in the Philadelphia area for over twelve years. His primary responsibilities include preaching, leadership development and vision casting.

He is a graduate of Philadelphia Biblical University, Dallas Theological Seminary and Biblical Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Bonnie, have four children, all of whom are avid Philadelphia Eagles fans!

Rev Gregg Miller, Associate Pastor of Discipleship and Pastoral Care

Pastor Gregg was born and raised in Ohio and served churches in Delaware, Long Island and Iowa before joining our leadership team in 1998. He did his undergraduate work at Barrington College in Rhode Island and prepared for ministry at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Illinois. Gregg clearly has a passion and the gift for ministering to people, and he is happiest helping others in their relationship with Christ. Here at WEFC he oversees our adult ministries. Gregg is married to Carla and together they enjoy their four children. In his spare time Gregg enjoys hiking anywhere and everywhere there is a mountain view to be seen. He also enjoys going to classic car shows with his 1977 Chrysler New Yorker and riding his motorcycle.

Audrey Jensen, Director of Caring Ministries

Audrey came to WEFC as the daughter of one of our former pastors. While living here she met and married Jack Jensen, who grew up in our church. To say she is a caring person is an understatement ... to meet Audrey is to make an instant friend. Because of her great capacity to care for others, it was very natural for her to invest time developing a ministry where our people would receive predictable and intentional care. She now oversees a team of caregivers assigned to those who make this their church home. She was instrumental in implementing the Stephen Ministry at WEFC, where specially trained "lay ministers" provide one-on-one care for those walking through difficulties. Audrey and Jack have three grown children and four amazing grandchildren. She enjoys golfing, knitting and cross stitch. In the office she is affectionately known as the staff "mom."

Shelagh Schuberth, Director of Children's Ministries

While Shelagh has been our Director of Children’s Ministries since 2013, she and her husband, Mike, have served in ministry to children together for over 30 years. Her passion for children comes through clearly, as she seeks to come along side families to help them nurture their children to know and love Jesus for themselves. Her joy and energy are contagious as she leads an army of ministry volunteers who serve children from birth through fifth grade. Shelagh enjoys cooking and entertaining. One of her favorite things to do is to walk on the beach with her husband in the early morning. She and Mike have two grown sons, Joe and Matt, whose lives have been greatly influenced by the children's and youth ministries here at WEFC, and for which they are very grateful.

Jeff Smith, Interim Director of Student Ministries

Jeff is no stranger to youth ministry, having served as the Director here at WEFC in the past, and on the youth staff most of his almost 30 years at the church. His love for teaching and discipling teenagers has always been his deepest passion, and he is more comfortable in a room full of teens than in a room of young children. Quite at home in the kitchen, he is known to prepare gourmet camping meals for his hiking and camping buddies, as well as amazing cookies, desserts and jerky for the teens. Jeff is a voracious reader, excellent story teller and loves the outdoors.

Doug Wisneski, Director of Visitation

Doug grew up in Hartford, CT. Until recently he was known mostly as "Ranger Doug" because of his long-standing role in our Boys Brigade ministry. Now he is sporting an additional hat as our Director of Visitation. After many years in the corporate world Doug found himself looking for a new direction. As a growing church we found ourselves with more and more people requiring visits in the hospital and in their homes for various reasons. With Doug's gift of encouragement and compassion it was natural that he would join us to help in this area. Doug is married to Debbe. They have two grown children and two adorable grandchildren. Just ask him to see a picture, or two or three. He is an avid photographer and loves to go fishing. Has he got a fish story for you!

Bonnie Solberg, Director of Women's Ministries

Bonnie, wife of Pastor Scott, went to school at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. She has a master's degree in Library Science and has worked in various school settings. However, her true passion has always been for Women's Ministries. She officially joined our Leadership Team in 2006. Bonnie is a skilled Bible Teacher who desires our women to be students of God's Word and she seeks to equip them for their various roles in life and ministry. She oversees our various ministries for women of all ages. Bonnie is a vibrant, joyful woman who loves being a mom to their four children. In her spare time she loves to sew and do handcrafts especially with other women.

Colleen Smith, Director of Worship Ministries/Office Manager

Music has always been a large part of Colleen’s life. Growing up in Christian home as part of a large musical family, she appreciates the sacrifices her parents made to provide them with lessons of various kinds.  Music ministry was a natural progression as she became involved in the church after marrying her husband, Jeff, in 1979.  Colleen came to WEFC in 1985 to work with the worship ministry and now also oversees the office staff.  Her greatest joy in ministry is team development and equipping/releasing leaders.  With two grown children and eight grandchildren, this “Nana” has a full and active plate.  She also enjoys reading, crocheting and bargain shopping.
