Jeff Neville - Lead Pastor/Elder
Although I grew up in the church, it wasn't until my 3rd year of college that God raptured my heart with the gospel. Since that time, He's been teaching me what it looks like to live in ever-increasing submission to Him as He continues His redemptive work in my life. I count it a great privilege to pastor my family (Merin, Jaxson, Macie, Mia, Josie, Jude & Matthias) and the faith family of Red Tree Church!
David Comstock - Community Pastor/Elder
Husband, Father, & Life Long Student of The Gospel. The last 15 years have been a beautiful story of God's redemption and reconciliation in my life. I continually feel privileged to be called to the gospel ministry. My wife Tara and our two children (Julia & Moses) were called to St. Louis to Love God and His poeple through the local expression of His global church. I have a passion for church planting and I love seeing the gospel take root in a persons life.
Craig McAlevey - Marriage & Family Pastor/Elder
Trey Malone - Pastoral Assistant
I grew up in an incredible family that loved Jesus and loved me. I was taught truth at a very young age and accepted Christ when I was as young as 3. I don't really remember not having a relationship with Jesus but that didn't hinder my ability to consistently forget and ignore the truth of the Gospel and the joy that naturally comes with it. Thankfully the Lord has consistently been gracious to gently remind me of how beautiful and fulfilling life is in Him. He has blessed me with the complete joy of a beautiful wife (Allie) and a beautiful daughter (Viva). My wife and I graduated from Mississippi College in 2012 and are now obeying the calling of the Lord in our lives to go and make disciples of many nations starting primarily with our 6 month old daughter.
Geralyn Murphy - Children's Ministry Director
God has richly blessed my life in providing Red Tree Community Church as a place to learn about real gospel-centered community, heart-centered, authentic worship of Jesus, and focus on HIS plans and purposes in life. As HIS redeemed child, HE has given me a real passion for children and families and miraculously placed me in the middle of Children's Ministry at Red Tree. I enjoy living in gospel centered worship as I'm blessed to experience spontaneity, innocence and connection to children of all ages and those who love to care for them. All glory to GOD, as HE allows me the privilege of serving HIS kingdom through the children HE provides to reflect who HE is now and forevermore.
Ted Rodgers - Nicaragua Missions Director
God began redeeming me through Jesus and the local church in 2004. In the summer of 2008, He began wooing me to the people of Nicaragua. Through serving in Nicaragua, a missional mindset and deeper understanding of the Gospel has been taking root in our familys' life. My wife and son ( Kelly & Teddy ) have been growing in the Gospel due to Gods redemptive work of His people in Nicaragua and the sanctification process it has done in me. It is a passion and privilege to share what He is doing in Nicaragua with the local church and faith family of Red Tree.
David Peterka - Local Missions Director
I grew up in the church and had the privilege of meeting Jesus when I was 5 years old. My faith was not truly my own until I was 18. Since then, I have been so blessed by Jesus sharing with me a part of his heart for those who are poor and oppressed. In 2009 I was blessed to be anle to be a part of a documentary project that did research on the causes and solutions to extreme poverty. I graduated from St. Louis Christian College in 2011 after studying Intercultural and Urban Missions. Now I am the director of a ministry called “When the Saints” which helps rehabilitate teenage girls who have been forced into prostitution.
Kim McAlevey - Administrative Assistant
Most days I’m a mess . . . in words, actions and prioritizing. But I am so grateful that God has seen fit to embrace me, love me and forgive me despite the sin. He has also blessed me with a loving, Godly husband and three precious children, whom we are dedicated to educating in all areas of life at home. Being a wife and mother has been incredibly humbling and has been an avenue for God to grow me. We are blessed to be part of the Red Tree faith family, and I am thankful that God can use my talents to serve Him here.
