Shannon Schuler, Children's Ministry

They were soon doing just that as leaders in both the youth and children’s ministries.  When the opportunity arose to get involved with the preschool ministry, Shannon was thrilled.

Lea Ann McCombs, Counselor

Since 2010, Lea Ann has served as a certified lay counselor for Cedar point church. Lea Ann has been married to her husband Wayne since 1985, and they are the parents of 4 young adults (Mandi, Sam, Susie, and Micah), and grandparents of Isabella. God called Lea Ann to a counseling ministry after taking her through her own season of brokenness and heartache. What Lea Ann had considered wasted suffering was, in fact, His graduate school for future ministry. After several months of training and certifications, she began the counseling ministry. God is using Cedar Point Counseling to reach people who may not otherwise be reached. By offering free counseling to anyone who comes, we are able to share the good news about Jesus with people who would not be open to it under other circumstances. Counseling is never one-size fits all, but Jesus has one truth that fits all.
