Darren & Kami Palmer, Lead Pastors

Darren and Kami have been serving at Faith Assembly since February 2013.  When they came, a small but committed group of people welcomed them, and they have been laboring together ever since.

Their ministry is highlighted by a passionate pursuit of Jesus through presence based worship, prayer, and teaching, and a strong desire to build and unite His Kingdom in Lincoln, IL.

They have four children (three at home, one married).




Dennis & Linda

 Dennis and Linda Sheehan, Missions Pastors and Elders

This couple is amazing!  Partially while raising their family, they served as missionaries in Jamaica and Poland through the ministry of Christ for the Nations.

After returning back to Lincoln, God led them to partner with Pastor Darren and Kami at Faith Assembly.  They currently are doing a wonderful job as missions pastors and Elders at Faith Assembly.  They carry passion for worship, prayer, and carry a deep sense of God’s anointing.

They are now credentialed pastors with the Assemblies of God.  They have a desire to see people released into the gifts that God has equipped them with.



Gary & Kathy

 Gary & Kathy Schmidt, Elders, Lincoln College Pastors

Gary and Kathy are outstanding pastors and leaders.  After pastoring in New Jersey for 8 years, they returned home to be with their parents in their later years as well as their grown children & grandchildren, and are now teamed up with Faith Assembly.  They are AG credentialed pastors as well.

Currently they lead our Chi Alpha ministry team, reaching the campus of Lincoln College.  (Lincoln College sits adjacent to Faith Assembly’s property, and God has burdened our church for these students.)

They are in love with the Lincoln College students, and are doing a fantastic job in raising up a lasting ministry on the campus.  They are also a vital part to the spiritual life of Faith Assembly and some of the most genuine believers you will ever meet.
