ERic Darst

Lead Pastor// Eric and his wife Stephanie currently live in O’Fallon, Missouri. God has blessed them with two wonderful children, Dominic, and Elle. Eric has a great passion for people, and a deep desire to see God transform lives through the gospel of Jesus Christ. After much prayer, he followed the call of God into Church Planting. With the help of partnering churches, and local church planting networks, Lifepoint Church has begun to reach out to the City of O’Fallon, Missouri with the overwhelming good news of Jesus Christ. 


LPKIDS Director// My prayer was for the Lord to lead our family to a church that loved the Lord, loved people and honored and glorified him in ALL that they did. After starting in with Coach Steph in early 2021 and feeling a nudge for months to move forward, God made it abundantly clear that Lifepoint was home for our family. I then began God's chosen journey for me as children's director and am thrilled that my 3 young girl's will grow in their spiritual walk along with me and the faithful volunteers who are each a vital part of this ministry. God has indeed blessed me by entrusting these precious little ones in my flock and I know He is with us every step of the journey. 

Steph Darst

LPFit Director // My family has been part of Lifepoint since its infancy. Being part of this community that constantly points my family to Christ has been a source of great encouragement to me as a wife, a mom, and a friend. As the director of Lifepoint Fitness, I desire to equip others to live healthy and whole lives for Christ, realizing that Jesus wants to be Lord of every area of our lives - body and spirit. 


WORSHIP DIRECTOR// I was born and raised a Missouri kid and have lived in Troy MO my entire life. Growing up a Pastors kid, I’ve always had a love for the things of God and loved serving Him through music. The Lord brought my wife and I together in 2016 at a worship leaders conference at the Bible College I graduated from, and in 2018 we married, and in 2021 welcomed our first child, Riley Harrison. The Lord has been so gracious in leading us to Lifepoint Church in 2020, and it has been such an honor to serve you as worship leader. I cannot wait to see what the Lord does in the coming years!


CHURCH PLANTING RESIDENT CA// My wife Janny and I started attending Lifepoint the first year the Church was planted. It was through this church plant that God radically saved us and transformed us both. God turned me away from the lifestyle of addictions and false religion. After several years of discipleship and spiritual development, we found ourselves called to plant a Spanish speaking church Lifepoint Español. In 2019 through much prayer and council we decided to move to California in order to minister to family in a very difficult season.  In November 2021 received a ready endorsement and joined the residency to plant a church in the LA area through the NAMB Send Network.


Lifepoint Missionaries / Honduras // 

We started attending Lifepoint 7 years ago. Since our first Sunday we felt instantly included and a part of the Lifepoint family. In the last 4 years we have learned and grown in our relationship with Jesus through the encouragement and love we have received at Lifepoint. We got to participate in several short term mission trips and God use those trips to spark the flame in hearts for missions. My wife and I along with many others from Lifepoint prayed about where God was calling us and God gave us a clear calling to Honduras. We are now serving in Yamaranguila, Honduras as teachers and have started developing a special needs program in the school where we serve. Currently there are no programs for students with special needs in Honduras. We also are leading a Lifegroup that meets at our house on Wednesday nights where we are pointing people to Christ and making disciples. We appreciate the support that we have received from Lifepoint as we are able to share the love of Christ with the people here in Honduras.
