ERic Darst

Lead Pastor // Eric and his wife Stephanie currently live in O’Fallon, Missouri. God has blessed them with two wonderful children, Dominic (16), and Elle (13). Eric has a great passion for people, and a deep desired 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. 


Worship Pastor // Lifepoint is more than a church, it's greater than the building. It's a Jesus centered spirit filled community who's heart beat is to equip and empower ordinary people with the eternal power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to reach both our neighbors and our nations for his glory and name sake. It's all about Jesus in my place and Jesus in your place. I've been blessed to be serving on staff as the Worship Leader since January of 2015. The things that make Lifepoint stand out though, is that I'm engaged, encouraged, and equipped  by not just the staff and pastors, but by the body who are radically passionate for the Church of Jesus Christ to be one body as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one. We are fully known and fully loved by our God. So, if you're looking for a Church to get plugged in at, know that at Lifepoint you can be fully known and fully loved.

Operations Pastor // I'm so grateful that God led our family to Lifepoint. I'm passionate about the Word of God and seeing people grow in true gospel community. I love that Lifepoint not only engages one another this way, but that we are constantly encouraged to love each other and the world around us from the pulpit. I have the great joy of serving and equipping the Lifepoint community through LifeGroups. At Lifepoint, we know and embrace our purpose of making much of Jesus and we take strength in the eternal hope He has given us through His death and resurrection. God is moving in big ways at Lifepoint and I'm very excited that He has invited me to be a part of it!

Ben Schulte

Youth Director // LifePoint Church has been the place where my wife and I really became connected with others who are passionate about Jesus. From the first day, the people greeted us and truly wanted to know who we were. We found community, leadership, and a vision here that we were starving for, and that we wanted to get on board with.  We have been encouraged by the church body, and equipped by the staff to grow in our God given gifts and passions. Now, I get to serve by pouring into the Youth, and providing the community my wife and I discovered when we visited for the first time. 

Daniel Hoenes

Financial Director // I am at LifePoint to participate in a community of people genuinely seeking God. I have been so encouraged by the people I’ve met over the past few years and by what God is doing through each of us. From the first time I visited, I was excited to join the family and serve however God called.

Stephanie 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 one of the coaches for 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. 


Lifepoint Missionaries / Honduras // 

We started attending Lifepoint 4 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.
