Pastors & Staff

Brad and Meg Standfest

Senior Pastor & Children's Pastor 

Brad and Meg Standfest started Almont Vineyard Church after Brad was called by God into the ministry.  Leaving all they knew behind, they forged ahead into the new life God had called them into, and Almont Vineyard Church stands today because of their leadership and dedication to God's people.  They are committed to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to as many as possible.

zeke Standfest

Youth Leader

Yes he is the Pastor's son, but that means nothing when you are called by God.  Zeke heard the call of the Lord to lead the youth of AVC into His kingdom, and Zeke has answered the call.  Zeke is currently in school at Liberty University majoring in Special Education, and is a welcome addition to the AVC leadership team.  Zeke has a wealth of experience with youth, and has a desire to shepherd the next generation of Christians.
