our team

Valor Church is located in Knob Noster, Missouri near Whiteman Air Force Base. We are made up of people from many different backgrounds who join together with purpose. We desire to draw near to God and create a home away from home for our local military community. We are made up of military members, their families, and other locals who love and support the mission that God has given us. We would love for you to be apart of our family. Check out our team below!

Craig & Maggie

Craig is our lead pastor at Valor and he comes with great ministry and military experience.  He is currently involved in church planting efforts both locally and nationally through various strategic partnerships. He loves life and loves his family. Craig invests his time towards building strong relationships through lunch or a cup of coffee.


Maggie loves laughing (mainly at Craig), drinking coffee, organizing, Scottie dogs.  She is passionate about reaching out to military wives because she knows what is like to work and take care of a family in a military culture.


Their hearts are to develop a healthy church body of all ages and turning that body into disciples for reaching Knob Noster, America and the world. They enjoy the opportunities to share the gospel and speak to students, singles and young adults and families. God has blessed them with the talent to reach the culture of Generation Next.  


Craig  and Maggie have two children Gigi and Isaiah.

Joey & Elisa

Joey & Elisa share a passion for those who have never heard or never understood the Good News of Jesus to hear it in a meaningful, relevant way. Both of them desire to see children learn and understand the Word of God and have a friendship with God that molds and shapes their lives as they grow.


Joey has been in the Air Force Reserves with the 442d Fighter Wing since 2010. He serves in the Logistics Readiness Squadron as a TMO technician. Although he enjoys the military, his desire is to work in the civilian corporate workplace and be a light for Jesus in a secular world. Elisa is the Children's Ministry Coordinator at Valor Church and an elementary teacher at Whiteman Elementary. Previously, she served with the International Mission Board in Eastern India for two years where she taught women the importance of following Jesus and sharing Him with others and where she volunteered in a school located in a slum.

Eric & Erica

Eric has been in the military for almost 20 years.  He spent 19 years of it being a cop and is now a First Sergeant in the Munitions Squadron.  One of his desires as a First Sergeant is to be given the chance to share the gospel with young Airmen in need.  Their family was also apart of a church plant in Germany while stationed there recently.  He loves his family, fishing and traveling.  


Erica has been a freelance photographer for the past 9 years.  Her favorite thing about photography is being creative and meeting new families and talking about their things in common, one of them being military families.  She spends most of her time taxing their two teens girls around to activities.  She enjoys CrossFit, coffee, long conversation with close friends and traveling.  


Eric and Erica have been married for 18 years and have known each other since they were 12 years old.  They both have a strong passion for believing in God’s plan and prayer.
