Mark Batton- Lead Pastor
I grew up in Georgia and Holly in Indiana, but Ohio is home now. We have been blessed with two great kids, Ella and Ayden. We are passionate about our relationships with God, our family, the church and community. We would love to meet you and get to know you. I enjoy spending time with my family, sports, getting to know new people, travel, electronics, movies, having time to relax, stumbling through home improvement projects, etc. Two things have come to the forefront in our church in the time I've served here: The church being a family and a burden for our community. I'm excited to see where God leads!
Summer Lyons - Children's Pastor
Summer and her husband Aaron reside in Englewood with their two sons, Jack (5) and Isaac (2). Summer has attended Vandalia Nazarene since she was a child. Summer graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene University in 2003 with a degree in Early Childhood Education and from Indiana Wesleyan University with a Master Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2006. She then taught in our local school system for 10 years.
The Lord fulfilled a deep desire in Summer's heart when HE opened the doors to be the director of Children's ministry in the spring of 2013. It takes the love of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and combines it with her love for children and teaching. Summer desires to develop relationships with children and help them to grow into the young men and young women Christ would have them to be. Providing guidance, love, fun, and an example to follow as she seeks Christ's guidance and works to lead children to develop a personal relationship with HIM!
