Faith Alive School of Ministry

Our Vision

Listed below are the volunteers and staff who help make the ministry of FACC possible, and also help make it a great success. I know, as a pastor, that I cannot fulfill the vision that God has given me for our church, city, and world without surrounding myself with people who love God, and who do great works and exploits for His Kingdom. I am truly blessed, I pastor one of the greatest churches in the world, with some of the most amazing leaders! Take a moment to read about my friends, leaders, visionaries and mighty men and women of God!

Pastors David & Frances Oberg

If you are interested in serving in any area of ministry at FACC, please email Pastor Joey Bock at:

Aaron Eby - Media Director

Aaron Eby
Media Director

Aaron is a great blessing to FACC...he handles our TV production on Sunday Mornings, develops and maintains our websites, and is our resident "geek" (that's a compliment). He is a long-timer at FACC, and has always been very faithful and loyal in supporting our vision. No, he won't fix your PC.

Peter Fall - Jail & Prison Ministry

Peter Fall
Prison & Jail Ministry

Pete has many years of ministry experience, and has a big heart for those that are incarcerated. Our current biggest focus is in the Lovelock, NV Correctional Facility. We are also reaching out to our local Parr Jail, and in Carson City & Silver Springs in the works for future outreach. Pete is also involved in the local Businessmen's Fellowship Chapter, serving as Vice-President.

Bob Kemp - Head Sound Technician
Bob "Kempmeister" Kemp
Head Sound Technician

Bob is our technical wiz...the one who everyone stares at when there is a "squeal", and no one thanks when things are fine (this happens to every sound man, every church, everywhere!). Seriously, he is a very dedicated and loving man who is the "nervous system" of our music team. Bob always has a smile, and has been known to supply the music team with Krispy Kreme donuts!
Randy Robertson
Men's Ministry

Pastor Frances Oberg
Women's Ministry

Pastor Frances has been leading the Women's Ministry at FACC for 17 years by example. She is a pray-er, great teacher, and has a passion for Jesus that inspires women to be all they can be in Him. We have a women's luncheon & conference every year that she hosts, and she always brings in tremendous guest speakers to encourage the ladies who come. Many other activities including retreats, teas, and Christmas parties keep the ladies having fun.
Jim Klein - Evangelism, Accounting Jim Klein
Evangelism, Accounting
We Care Food Pantry

Jim is a humble servant who spends time volunteering in many areas of ministry. He has a heart and passion for the lost, and is diligent in making sure they are followed up on. Jim is very organized, and helps our office run smoothly and efficiently. He also does a great job leading and instructing our altar workers on how to effectively minister to those who are newly born again or have come back to the Lord. Bro. Jim always has a great testimony and is a man of faith! (See wife Annette below)
Bob Beharry - Head Usher - 9:00 AM Bob Beharry
Head Usher 9:00 AM Service

Bob has been with FACC for over twenty years. There is something to be said about the faithfulness of long-timers! Bob does his job with excellence, and leads his team of ushers with honor and integrity. Bob always has a smile for you, I bet even when he's arresting you (he's a police officer...just kidding Bob). Bob & his wife Susan are pillars of our local church, and are a great blessing to us all!

Kenny & Reena Sippola
Youth Ministry

Kenny & Reena have a passion for young people that started with an amazing supernatural experience that Kenny had which brought him back to Jesus. Since then, the desire for reaching out to this generation has been burning in their hearts, and has developed into them leading and revolutionizing our youth ministry at FACC.
