Pastors & Staff

Brad and Meg Standfest

Senior 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.

Clayton and Amanda House

Worship Directors

Since joining AVC in January of 2016, Clayton and Amanda have brought our worship to a higher level, inviting the presence of the Lord and we are so blessed by their gifts and talents.

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.

Jeanne works behind the scenes to help the church run smoothly, and also heads our Media team, training new volunteers and volunteering her own time on Sunday mornings to help bring the Gospel to all corners of the earth.
