Our Team


PHIL KRUIS - Senior Pastor
I'm way too young to be called "Sr." anything. Actually, I'm 57 and qualify for discount coffee at McDonalds so maybe I do qualify. But my wife--the love of my life--and my kids keep me feeling young. With two kids out of college and the youngest living with us, they keep me hopping. I try to stay somewhat in shape (round is a shape, right?) by cycling, hiking and hitting the gym as often as my schedule allows.

You'll usually find the radio in my car set to 70's and 80's classic rock or sports talk radio and I am part of a rare breed: an Arizona Cardinals fan.

If you stop by the house, you'll get to enjoy my wife's great cooking, a nice glass of wine, and a relaxing evening talking about life, theology and, of course, sports. Dutch is our massive but loveable pit bull mix and our two Jack Russell Terrier mixes, Cody and Buckley, will make you feel right at home after giving you the "sniff".

I love teaching about the grace of God and how the gospel transforms lives. Given my counseling background, I love doing that one-on-one, in small groups, or "counseling" from the pulpit.

Favorite quote? I don't know who said it, but it makes a lot of sense to me: "The hardest thing about life is that it is so daily." Thank God for his remedy: "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lam. 3:22, 23



MARK LAUTERBACH - Associate Pastor

I grew up in Pittsburgh, watched the Pirates win the World Series, and the Steelers win 4 Super Bowls. But most importantly, it was in Pittsburgh where God sent a high school friend to tell me about Jesus saving death. As my senior year began, Christ invaded my life and changed everything. At Princeton University, I had my first sense of call to ministry and I met my wife-to-be (Rondi), who is from Memphis, TN.

We were married in 1978. Our homes have been mostly in the West. I have served churches in Oregon (Portland), Arizona (Tucson), and California (San Jose and San Diego). Along the way we had 3 children, who are all married, and now we have 7 grandchildren. Our greatest desire is to introduce people to Jesus and to help them grow in him.

When not working, you will find us hiking, working out, reading, enjoying friends, and traveling. Rondi is an author and a Pilates teacher. Mark plays golf.

We returned to Tucson in 2016. Our calling at this season is to leverage our years of ministry experience and to serve the next generation of church leaders. Mark does that at Rincon, in our Presbytery, and by serving the church in Serbia. Rondi travels with him to encourage the women of the churches.

Favorite quote? By a pastor of long ago. I have taken all my good deeds, and all my bad, and cast them in a heap before the Lord, and fled from both, and betaken myself to the Lord Jesus Christ; and in Him I have sweet peace. — D. Dickson
