Welcome to Sunnycrest Church! I am a native of South Dakota with roots in Pierre. I am a graduate of SDSU with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. I am currently getting my Master of Divinity degree from Sioux Falls Seminary. Before Sunnycrest, I severd a Methodist Church in Madison, SD.
I am blessed with an awesome family, my wife Stephanie, and my daughter Lydia LaVonne. I am an avid outdoorsmen. If I am not in the office, I am most likely fishing, hunting, bird watching, or spending time with my family.
Hello! I am Melissa, the worship leader here at Sunnycrest. Music has always been a big part of my life, so to be able to share that love with the congregation is truly a blessing. I have two wonderful children, Avery and Carter, who bring so much joy to my life. I am a co owner of a commercial kitchen design business, so I spend my week days drawing floorplans on the computer and my night's and weekends worshiping God. Couldn't ask for a better church family than what Sunnycrest has given me.
One of my favorite things about being Sunnycrest’s office manager is interacting with so many amazing people from the church and the surrounding community on a daily basis. It truly brings me joy.
Hi. I am Amanda Erickson, and I am the Children’s Ministry Coordinator here at Sunnycrest. I believe that children are a beautiful blessing from God, and it is my passion to teach them about God’s love. I followed my heart and became an elementary educator, and now I substitute teach in the Sioux Falls School District. I am happy that God has led me to Sunnycrest, and I look forward to helping our church mold our next generation in the Christian faith.

"In the morning when I rise give me a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus!" I'm an LPN at a Sanford clinic as my full time job. I've been a volunteer youth leader at Sunnycrest since the summer of 2007. God knew exactly where I needed to be at this church!

I am a husband, father of four, and a grandpa. I work in the medical field and enjoy music and photography. I use my joy of music to help with children's ministries and participate in the church praise band. I love working with youth! You guys bring fun, energy, and a curiosity that is very helpful for my own faith walk.
There is a place and purpose for everyone in God's Kingdom. One of my favorite things to do is help you discover your gifts and talents, and find ways for you to use them to live out God's purpose for you.
