Our Staff


Brent Liechty

Pastor Brent and his family joined us in August 2016, coming "back home" from pastoring a church in Michigan. His wife, Loretta, is a native of this area and Brent was youth pastor of another local UB church until 2005. They have 3 children, twin teenage daughters, Laurelei and Susanna and a son, Gabe. Brent has studied ministry at Huntington College, Evangelical Seminary (MDiv) and Bethel College (MATS). He is insightful, quick-witted, humorous and gracious and most of all deeply desires to seek and then put-into-action God's heart and paths for himself and Mongul Church. He takes seriously his call to be a responsible shepherd of the people God has put under his care and to reach out to the community with the love and Good News of Jesus. Contact Pastor Brent at

Administrative Assistant

Lori Ann Gossert

Lori Ann began in the office in June of 2007 and spends her days working on bulletins, slides, data entry and those other random duties that come as part of working in a church office. She loves to create and is at her best when sitting at the Mac whipping up some new event or series design or announcement slide. Her other passions are tea, teaching, mime and arts in the Bible and she is slowly working on a fantasy fiction novel. But these pursuits are largely on hold for the time being as she learns to trust God more deeply walking a long, slow journey of healing from Lyme, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and connected symptoms.
