Church Staff

With a combined Clear Creek history nearing 80 years, our staff is truly a ministry team. Don't hesitate to approach any of them if you have questions about the whats and hows of life at Clear Creek! Click on the photos if you would like to email any of them.

  • David lee - Senior Pastor

    In thirty years at Clear Creek, David has worn a lot of hats (which was apparently REALLY hard on his hair...) In each role - student ministry, missions, groups and worship - teaching has always been the heart of his ministry. He started wearing the "official" teacher hat in January 2018.

    David and Kelly used to have hobbies - but with three boys-to-men in the house, who has time for hobbies?! (Once the boys are grown and gone, though, you'll probably see him on a gently-used 2032 Kawasaki motorcycle...)

  • Sam Goodpaster - office administrator

    Sam keeps the Clear Creek team running from her position in the office Monday thru Friday.  She is the wife of David and the mom of Charlie and Drew.  Sam Graduated from Indiana University in 1997 with a degree in Elementary Education.

    Sam loves watching her sons play baseball and soccer.  She also enjoys spending time with her friends and family.

  • chris smith - Discipleship & Development

    Chris and her husband John were warmly welcomed to the Clear Creek Family in 1994. They have raised their kids here, grown in faith here and served Jesus by serving kids along the way.

    Chris is inspired by the spiritual metaphors for life that God placed in creation. She'll stop to admire anything with bright colors, always roots for the underdog and won't ever turn down a good cookie or a hug from a kid!

  • Andrew Long - Student Minister

    Andrew grew up at Clear Creek, and came home to join the team in June 2017. He loves helping teens figure out what it means to walk with Jesus.

    Andrew and Alanna (an IU alum) watch a lot of Kentucky basketball - he's trying to convert her to UK fandom, and she trying to lead him out of darkness. Pray for Alanna! If you want to spot the two of them in their native habitat, look on the walking trails, at sporting events, or at a farmers' market near you!

  • Casey Ulinski--Children's Minister

    Casey recently joined our ministry team, and we are excited to see how God works through her at Clear Creek.  One of her primary areas of focus with children's ministry is with families.  Casey feels that children's ministry is a team effort and she looks forward to helping families make the most of their time together.  

Church elders

Appointed as guardians of the church's spiritual health, and tasked specifically with prayer and teaching, our elders are an invaluable resource to the congregation and the church staff. You should get to know these men!
