Senior Minister

Creighton Beatty

Hi I am Creighton Beatty the minister. My wife Debbie and I moved from North Carolina to Manteno November 2018. It was a leap of faith and God blessed. We have seven grandkids we adore, three in Washington State and four in Indiana. It’s a joy to be near family. When we’re not visiting grandkids we maybe sipping coffee somewhere or riding a bicycle in the countryside. Our church family also means the world to us. It’s a pleasure to serve Christ with a people who love Jesus and want to see the kingdom grow.

Church Secretary

Hi, I’m Kristin Banks.

I was born and raised in Kansas, which is where I went to Washburn University to get my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and French. Then, I married my husband, Adam, and we moved to Illinois in 2004, so that I could get my Masters of Science in Child Development at the Erikson Institute in Chicago. We have 4 children, three girls and one boy, spanning the ages of toddlerhood to teenage years, so they keep us busy! When I’m not running kids around, working, or leading moms groups, I love to read! We have called the Christian Church of Manteno our home church since 2011.
