Journey@McPherson Staff

Campus Pastor | Jim Ostlund
Jim and Jodi Ostlund, along with their two sons Noah and Ethan live in McPherson where Jim has served as the campus pastor since 2012. Jim grew up in Central Kansas and has spent time on both coasts. He holds a BA in music from Bethel College, and a MA from Fuller Theological Seminary, and has served as a pastor in two different Mennonite churches. Jim’s other loves are music, golf, hunting/fishing, and cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs.
Associate Pastor | Kevin Wilder
Kevin and his wife Marilyn live in Hesston. Kevin began working at Journey in 2017. Kevin has an MA in Family Ministry and has attended Trinity Seminary, Friends University, and Denver Seminary. He is a psychology instructor at Hesston College. When he went to college, he was told to study what he was passionate about, which was Jesus and people. He loves working with families and seeing people grow in Christ. Kevin enjoys biking and kayaking. He also loves breakfast, and if you were to invite him for breakfast, he would probably say yes!
Worship Pastor | Zach Batson
Zach holds a great excitement and vision for growth in the church and outreach in the community. He started attending Journey in the fall of 2013 and has felt his love and calling in the church steadily grow since. Zach is currently studying for his Masters in Christian Spiritual Formation and Leadership at Friends University, and will graduate in 2019. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University in Construction Science and Management and uses that education as he owns and operates Batson Construction doing subcontract carpentry work throughout the area. Zach has a great love and passion for worshiping God and using his gifts as he encourages others. He enjoys music, songwriting, spending time in the great outdoors, and venturing out in new places.
Youth Intern | Josh Wardle
Josh came to McPherson from Pilot Point, TX to pursue ministry at Central Christian College. He is in his 2nd year as an intern at Journey! As Josh continues his education, he is interested in studying theology. He has always had a heart for youth. He has spent time working with youth at a camp in Colorado where God has continued to call him into youth ministry. Josh also enjoys drumming and it is possible if you visit a worship service that you may find him behind the drums!
Student Intern | Sheila Elmore
Sheila is in her first year as a Student Intern at Journey@McPherson. She is currently studying Ministry and Art at Central Christian College. In the summer of 2013, Sheila had returned from her first mission trip knowing she wanted to be a missionary. God has continued to confirm this to her. Her focus is towards building relationships with kids at Journey and at Arts After School. She loves to hang out with family and friends, to be outside, to create and to exercise!
Custodian | Denise Thiessen
Denise is married to Loren. Together they have 7 children and 21 grandchildren. She is originally from Lyons and has served as the custodian at the McPherson campus since it opened! Her passion for the church is more than a job. She loves sharing her gifts and love with her church family. Denise enjoys sewing, gardening, organizing and spending time with family and friends.
