A Bit About Me

Justin Metiva moved to Festus in 2011 when he began his position of Youth Pastor at GNCC. He was called into ministry at the age of 15 but wasn't really sure what to do with it. The Lord prompted him again in 2007 but it wasn't until he was challenged by a high school student that he actually followed his call into ministry. Justin spent 9 years as our Youth Pastor and is now currently serving as Associate Pastor at the Festus Campus. He and his wife, Hattie, have been married since 2000. They have 4 amazing miracles, Eli, Nora, Ally, and Finley. In his spare time he enjoys playing golf, reading, spending time with his family, and working on construction projects. He also loves the game of baseball.

A Bit About Me

Rachel has been the Children’s Pastor at Good News Community Church since July 2016. She was a NICU nurse before that. God placed a calling on her life in early 2016 to change her career course and she was excited to follow. She is motivated by her love for Christ and her desire to instill and grow the love of Christ in the children at GNCC. She graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University in 2003 with a BSN and is currently working towards her ordination in The Wesleyan Church. She and her husband, Nick, have been married since 2004 and have two beautiful daughters, Isabella and Carly. They enjoy traveling, camping, and love to do anything that is outdoors. The Rowden family is also always up for a family game night.
