Meet Our Staff

Jed Angell

Senior Pastor

This is Jed’s bio. I’m sure his biography is truly inspiring but we will only know once I receive it from him. I suppose I could make one up but that could get us in trouble…

If you see Jed, be sure to ask him about it.

Worship Leader

Music has been such a huge part of my life. God has used it to encourage me, break me down, teach me, challenge me and speak to me. I’ve been leading worship in some fashion for about 12 years now at Friendship. If I had to use one word to describe our worship at Friendship it would be passion.

Sometimes we’re soft and sometimes we’re loud but our worship is giving everything we have to God, who is the only One worthy of our praise. My prayer has been and always will be that the passion we have for praising Him is displayed, not just through our voices, but in everything we do. I’m just another broken sinner, who has experienced God’s Amazing Grace, and can’t help but worship Him.

Stephanie was born and raised just north of Granville, Missouri, and graduated high school from Paris, Missouri.  She attended the University of Missouri – Columbia and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Human Environmental Design, specializing in Interior Design.  Stephanie has been married to her awesome husband, Shawn, for almost 15 years.  They met while Shawn was a music teacher at Paris, Missouri.  He worked with Stephanie’s mother, who introduced them.  They married two and a half years later at the Centralia Town Square on June 27, 1998, with Pastor Jed Angell officiating.

After graduating college, working in Columbia, getting married, and moving to North Missouri for her husband’s career, Stephanie became a stay-at-home mom with the birth of their first daughter, Charlee.  Twenty-two months later, they welcomed their second daughter, Remington.  Stephanie has enjoyed staying at home with their girls for the past 13 years.  She has also been able to substitute teach at her daughters’ school, Sturgeon R-V.  Stephanie and her family have become very involved at Friendship Christian Church.  Stephanie has volunteered in the Nursery, facilitated Kidz Worship for several years, co-facilitated the Children’s Coordinator with her husband, Shawn, and for the last five years has been actively involved in Tuesday night’s Dive ‘N Deep program.  Stephanie and her husband also introduced Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University to the church several years ago and have facilitated five classes.

As of January 2012, Stephanie took over the volunteer position of Church Treasurer, that was transitioned into the Administrative Assistant position.  Stephanie, Shawn, Charlee, and Remington reside outside Sturgeon, Missouri, and have attended Friendship Church since the couple met.

Recovery & Outreach

FCC staff since 2007, and Friendship Celebrate Recovery Pastor since 2009. By God’s Grace, I am a new creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone and the new has come.”

Anger, depression and chemical abuse were the coping skills that dominated much of my life. This is how I dealt with life’s pain, and led me on a path of increasing pain and self-destruction. By the age of 35, I was completely controlled by my drug of choice. I destroyed every relationship I had. I sacrificed everything I had in my life on a relentless pursuit to destroy myself. I was hopeless and alone. It seems that every choice I was making was leading me up to ending my life just as my mother and sister both had done. Thankfully, God had other plans for me.

After a 25 year addiction to multiple drugs, and incarceration from the consequences of these choices, I was at my “rock bottom”.  I’m thankful for this time in my life, for it was exactly where I needed to be to seek Him. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to help you, not hurt you. Plans to bring about a future you hope for.” This is where it started for me. A future was exactly what I desired. I knew I could not return to the life I had created, I was powerless to control myself from doing the wrong thing.

Since a child, I believed in God, but I believed in existence only. I didn’t consider it from a personal perspective. How could our Creator love me and forgive me of all the horrible things I have done in my life? If He loved me and forgave me, why would He allow all these horrible things to happen to me in this life? These were the questions that kept me from seeking a personal relationship with Him. I realize now that, in essence, I was playing God. My decisions were made in the moment, and based on desire. In that cell, I realized that apart from Him, I could not make a healthy decision. I made the choice to seek Him with all my heart. Each new day He reveals His Grace to me as He changes my heart and leads me to positive change in my life. Jesus offers the same for us all. He offers us freedom from our hurts, habits and hang-ups. He offers us purpose and a future.

Paul says it best, “Though I am still not all I should be, I am thankful I am not where I once was”. I am still a work in progress, and continuing to move forward. Thankfully, I do not have to make this journey alone. God gives us each other. He sends us to one another to provide encouragement when we are discouraged, to provide strength in our time of weakness, to provide love when we feel unlovable and to provide comfort when we are in pain. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 tells us, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But, pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up”.

Friendship Christian Church offers many different ministries for us to connect, no matter where we are in our journey. These ministries encourage us and teach us how to find healing and open our hearts for Him to work in all aspects of our lives, as we walk this path of life together. “Living and growing in Christ together”.

This is Mark’s bio. Since I’m just now adding him to the staff, I need to get his biography information.
