Senior Office

Jody Bowser

Senior Pastor

Pastor Jody came to King Street in 2015. His journey includes twenty years as a youth pastor in California and Ohio, and ten years as the senior pastor of a church in central Washington. These positions and experiences have uniquely equipped Jody to lead King Street Church into the exciting future that God has in store. Pastor Jody leads with a passion for people and a great enthusiasm for the Word of God. His ministry and messages are often described as warm, authentic, inspirational and applicable to daily life.

Jody’s education and training have played a significant role in preparing him for his current role. He has an undergrad degree from Judson University (Elgin, IL), where he double-majored in Human Relations and Biblical Studies. He earned a Masters of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary (Pasadena, CA), and went on to earn a Doctor of Ministries degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with an emphasis in preaching and Biblical exegesis.

Pastor Jody’s favorite passage of Scripture is 2 Corinthians 4—a chapter that begins and ends with the Apostle Paul enthusiastically declaring that in spite of all of the challenges and struggles of life, he will not lose heart! In the middle of the chapter is his favorite verse: “We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” (v. 7) Jody finds great encouragement in the fact that even though we are weak—God is strong! The Gospel is our great treasure and our power for joyful living!

Speaking of great treasure—Pastor Jody treasures time spent with his family. His wife, Caryn, is the love of his life. Together, they continue to raise their eight children: Jay & Morgan, married and living in Charlotte, NC where Jay is on staff at Elevation Church; Jesse & Carissa, married and living in Travelers Rest, SC where Jesse is a graphic designer at Brains on Fire; Maddie lives in Greenville, SC and is part of The Fellows Initiative—an intensely practical nine-month experience designed to prepare recent college grads to live seamless lives of faith; Ming is a senior at Lancaster Bible College majoring in business; Mitchell is a freshman at Cedarville University majoring in worship; and Jamae is high school freshman at Shalom Christian Academy.

Lisa Todino

Nursery Coordinator

Lisa recruits, trains and cares for our volunteers in the infant to 2 year old rooms of our nursery.  She believes we are not just “babysitting” our youngest children but planting the first seeds that will grow their faith and relationship with God.

Waiting is always the hardest part and it was a very rough road for them spiritually and as a couple.  Lisa has always found comfort in the Psalms, specifically Psalm 139 knowing that God created her and knows her so completely he knows what she will say before a word is on her tongue and that he is always with her even through the darkest of days and all of the days ordained for her were written in his book before one of them came to be!  He has us always!

Renee Hall

Preschool Coordinator

Renee has an AS degree in Early childhood development. She has taught preschool age children for 30 plus years in Church Ministry, Christian School, and privately owned settings. She has dedicated her life to ministry by serving as children’s ministry coordinator in various churches. She feels wherever God leads her, be it in the classroom, home or church, life is full of ministry opportunities that have the potential to leave God’s fingerprint on someone’s life.

Renee’s role here at King Street Church is to supervise and oversee preschool ministry by engaging, training, equipping and leading volunteers as they serve as Bible teachers and nurturing caregivers to children ages 2-kindergarten. She also works with the other children’s ministry staff to plan and prepare ministry activities that help lead families toward the mission of the church and the children’s ministry.

Renee’s heart for preschool / children’s ministry has basically been a lifelong passion. Having grown up in the church and watching her parents do ministry, Renee developed this desire early on. Her mother instilled the Gospel message in her heart and it took root as a teenager when Renee gave her life to the Lord. She began teaching children through various VBS opportunities and eventually was assigned the role of kindergarten teacher and children’s music director as a senior in high school. Her heart’s desire for children is for them to hear the Word of God in developmentally appropriate ways and for it to begin to take root so that one day they too can come to know Him personally. In stepping into this ministry role, she felt the Lord gave her this verse. Isaiah 40:11 “He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” She feels the preschool ministry is a vital component as each one comes along side of parents to help lead their children toward a relationship with Christ while teaching, caring, loving and nurturing them.  

Renee is married to Randal who both come to us from the south having lived and served in Georgia, Florida and North Carolina. They have been a part of King Street Church since 2009. They have 1 daughter, Amelia, who is married to Logan Swartz. Renee and Randal have been blessed with 3 “Sweet Sugars”…wee ones (Grant, Caroline and Reid) that call them Grandmama and Grandpapa. They are the delights in their day! Other than ministering to preschoolers, Renee has a love for singing. She also enjoys reading books about people’s lives and how they have come through various life circumstances, Hallmark movies, and sewing when she gets a chance. She counts it a privilege and joy to be a part of the ministry and team of King Street Church.
