Lead Pastor - Eric Schall

Pastor Eric is ordained with the Assemblies of God and has served as the Lead Pastor at Creekside since August 2020. He has a passion to see people who don’t know Jesus come into a relationship with Him, as well as to equip followers of Jesus for ministry. He has earned a B.S. in Education and a Master’s in Christian Ministry.

Eric married up when he wed his wife Susi in 1995 and has two awesome children Ally and Josiah who have both earned their Bachelor’s degrees. In addition to being a huge support to her husband, Susi also serves as one of our Pre-K teachers on Sundays.

He is originally from Ohio and loves the Ohio State Buckeyes, pizza, Hawaiian shirts, socks & sandals (pray for him!), and exploring new areas and meeting new people in CB & Omaha. He’s also a sci-fi/fantasy geek (B5, ST, SW, SG, LOTR) and loves a good action flick.

Fav. Music: Elevation Worship and 80's jams


Children & Family Pastor - Carrie Patch

Pastor Carrie has served as the Children’s Pastor at Creekside church since 2019. Her passion is to see children come to know Jesus at the earliest age and serve Him for a lifetime.

Carrie is married to the love of her life Marc Patch and together they have a beautiful daughter, Annabelle. Being in ministry, they have lived in California, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Iowa.

Carrie graduated with a B.A. from the University of Minnesota and later attended Christ For the Nations Bible Institute in Dallas, TX where she received (and currently holds) a license in ministry. In addition, she has completed courses at Berean School in Oklahoma to be credentialed with the Assemblies of God. Carrie has served in children’s ministry since 2005 and couldn’t imagine doing anything else!

Other than church activities, Carrie enjoys going on road trips with her family, exercising, drinking coffee with friends, ordering from Amazon, going to the zoo, and watching prank videos on YouTube.


Missions Pastor - KatyBeth Turkson

Pastor Katybeth has had a passion for missions since she was 12 years of age when God called her to be a missionary to Africa while at Youth Convention. She received her licensed ministerial credentials through Iowa School of Ministry with the Assemblies of God in pursuit to be a missionary. She is also a Registered Nurse and currently serves the homeless people of our community at the Open Door Mission in Omaha, Nebraska.

Katybeth pursued the call to go to the nations of South Africa, Haiti, Russia and Ghana. While serving in Ghana, she would meet her husband, Joe Turkson. They were married in the US and have two beautiful girls, Emma and Hadassah.<

She desires to fulfill the Great Commission that all will know and follow Jesus from every tribe, tongue and nation. They hope and believe to go back to Africa to continue serving the Lord reaching the lost.

Outside of church, Katybeth loves walking outside, going to the zoo, spending time with her family, learning and reading.

Church Vision

To be a church where those who are far from God can come near to experience Him.

To be a church where those who already know Him can serve, worship, and connect, as well as grow in their knowledge and experience of a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled life.

To be a church that embraces serving the people of the greater Omaha area in tangible ways.
