Dave Spooner, Crosspoint Lead Pastor
Dave has served in pastoral ministry since 1994 with churches in the upper midwest and was the founder and lead pastor of Mosaic, that has now merged to become Crosspoint.
Dave has a love of strategy, big dreams, people-development, and difference-making. He enjoys sub-par puns, piles of books, and too-loud music. He balances seriousness, wisdom, and depth with contagious humor and energy. His devotion to God and love for all people flows from a heart of sincereness and humility.
He is a graduate of the University of Northwestern in St. Paul, Minnesota, with degrees in Pastoral and Biblical Studies. In addition, holding a M.S. degree in Organizational Leadership from Southern Christian University and currently completing a Doctorate at Knox Theological Seminary. He has been married to his wife Gretchen since 1995, and they have two adult daughters.

In 2011, Kee and his family moved to Rockford, Illinois, and in 2012 he founded and was lead pastor of Myanmar Christian Fellowship.

An artist, musician, and writer with a strong love of coffee, good books, and energetic conversation, Michael has a passion to see the Gospel spread, and God glorified. Fast paced and vision oriented, Ephesians 2 guides his life: “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Fred Holmertz, Buildings and Grounds Manager
Shortly after Fred surrendered his heart to Jesus in 1978, he returned to Rockford and began attending Temple Baptist Church in 1980. He discovered his spiritual gifts of service and hospitality and began serving on the building and grounds team. In the 1990’s, God gave him a passion for men’s ministry in the Promise Keepers movement and he organized bus trips to conferences. Fred loves serving in the cafe, small groups, bus trips, singles’ group, men’s ministry, young adults, and building projects. Drama and productions have also been a part of his 40 years at TBC, now Crosspoint Church. For the past two years, he has volunteered as Property Manager at Crosspoint.
