The Altar St Cloud Vineyard Church
Pastor Micheal was born in Lake City, Florida, was raised in Central Florida and has deep roots here. He met Sarah in Nashville, Tennessee and married her in 1994. He has pastored here in Saint Cloud since April 2002. Michael knows he was called into the ministry since 2000 and is serving precisely where God has ordained him to pastor. He loves The Altar Saint Cloud Vineyard and looks forward to growing with this church fellowship until Jesus comes…
Joan Elsebough currently serves as a Church Elder. She was born and raised in New York City, married Bryon
Elsebough at age 19, and has three grown children plus six grandchildren. She majored in Business and Science at Valencia Community College and works at Campus Crusade for Christ over the past 23 years. Her vision for our church is home groups, where folks can have the support of others who pray for them; establish connections to others who follow Christ; to see people connect in real relationships, having like-minded people uplifting and sharpening each other in everyday life. Her relationship with the Lord began when very young and she came to know Jesus as Savior and Lord at 18 years of age.
Sarah was born in Rolla, Missouri, growing up in St. Joseph. Her hobbies include reading and scrapbooking. She loves to worship. She plays keyboards on the worship team, but also loves children and serving. What she would like people to take away from her ministry is that Christ wants a two-way relationship with us, engaging and interactive, with a desire for people to be spirit-led in their lives, focusing on holiness in living. Things to know about Sarah: she loves education and having fun in life; books, jewelry, music, and wedding shows are favorites. Similarly, we are individually seeking to advance in God’s kingdom through our determination to finish well within His grace and mercy. Her relationship with Jesus began at the age of four, later seeking God in a spiritual emphasis week at Christian School where she was filled with the Holy Ghost, and her ongoing experiences with the Lord.
