Each member of our staff brings an unique and special skillset to our team. From past missionaries to tech gurus we have team that can serve the church in almost every way.
George and Jill are originally from Gonzales, La. After both becoming Christians around the same time, they started their journey in ministry in 1995. Before serving in Lake Charles, they were church planters in Russia for 13+ years. Their passion is for churches to be a light for Christ and be filled with the Holy Spirit. They were married in 1992 and love their "coffee time" together. :) While serving Russia, they adopted their first daughter Linna, and since then the Lord blessed them with 2 other daughters, Aaliya and Destiny, and their dog Rudy.
Zack and Laura moved to Lake Charles in 2015 to serve the church in various capacities. Prior to working at the church full-time, Zack worked in the private and public sector as an accountant and an auditor, as well as managing several ministry projects. Zack currently serves as a Pastor here at the Vineyard.
Laura is employed as a Speech Pathologist in the Lake Charles area. She has also ministered to women and children and served on church worship teams for over 10 years.
Zack and Laura met while pursuing their graduate degrees at Southeastern Louisiana University. They were married in 2013, and they currently have 3 children, Jackson, Rosie, and Ezra (not pictured).

Jordan and Emilee both grew up in Lake Charles and met in the Barbe High School band in 2012. The high school sweethearts were married in 2018.
Emilee's Grandfather, Daniel Gutierrez, played a big role in her faith today. He often told her to “Trust in the Lord and take it one day at a time”; a motto she still follows to this day. Emilee is a speech-language pathologist in Calcasieu parish and enjoys the ministry opportunity it provides to teach everyone that their voice matters.
Jordan began attending the Vineyard in 2005. He knew he was called to youth ministry even as a teenager. In October of 2020, he gladly accepted the role as Youth Director and was a volunteer until he and Emilee joined the staff in early 2023. Jordan and Emilee enjoy seeing spiritual growth through the younger generation as they desire to know God.
Emilee and Jordan have 1 child, Daniel, and too many pets to mention. ;)
