WGCC Staff

The staff and Walnut Grove is comprised of people who love, care, and pray for every single person in the church. If you have questions for any of our staff, feel free to reach out and email them or call the church office to speak to them.

Steven Stern, Pastor

Steven joined Walnut Grove in January of 2016.


Steven, his wife Chelsea and their son Samuel come to us from Franklin, IL. You will see him each Sunday delivering the message that God has put on his heart. He enjoys finding the many ways the Bible applies to everyday life.


When Steven has spare time, he enjoys playing sports: especially basketball and volleyball. He relaxes by watching movies, reading and spending time with Chelsea and Samuel. Lately, he is taking on the challenge of surviving a mini-triathlon. He is also addicted to pizza and ice cream.

Aaron boothe, youth pastor

Aaron joined Walnut Grove in November of 2012.


On Sunday's you will see Aaron doing a wide range of things, from helping lead worship, to teaching Sunday School, and on Sunday nights Aaron leads the Youth Group for Jr. High and High school students.


Aaron loves food! He loves cooking, grilling, baking, smoking (yes...we are still talking about food...), pretty much any way you can cook food, he wants to try it.  He also likes to spend his free time fishing, learning how to play as many instruments as he can, and relaxing with his wife Allison and son, Thomas.

Tera Arnold, ministry assistant

Tera joined the staff at WGCC in January 2011.  She is the heart of the church office, provides support to the pastors, and creates and produces all church correspondence & materials. If you've ever received a newsletter, bulletin, e-mail, or letter from WGCC, Tera's the one that made it.


When Tera isn't running from work to school, football, baseball  or soccer, Tera enjoys relaxing, playing games, watching movies and spending time with her husband Chad and their children, Kadelyn and Paxton.
