Founded in 2012, we are an outreach based ministry touching the lives of youth and families in our communities. Our goal is to reach those who are outside the walls of our Churches with the message and the love of Jesus Christ. We do this by ministering to all we meet, especially those who are unsaved, unchurched, and having a hard time in life.
Elevate's mission is to see people saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped, empowered, and serving God with thier whole heart!
We are commanded to have a mission mindset. Every follower of Christ is called to be His equipped witness. We endeavor to disciple each member by teaching them to be capable witnesses. Our focus is (in order); local, regional, national/domestic, and international. Our proclamation of the gospel will be accompanied by both Love and Service.
Elevate believes passionately in the power of Christ to change lives and communities and it's the driving force behind everything we do.
Jonathan and Kristi have been married since August 2006. They first met while students at Seminary in Pennsylvania in 2003. From a young age, both Jonathan and Kristi developed a deep desire to serve the Lord in ministry. Jonathan grew up in a missionary’s family and Kristi in a ministry focused family. Together, they have served as Pastors, Interim Pastors, Youth Pastors, Evangelist, Children Pastors, Short-term Missionaries, Sunday School Teachers, and Worship leaders in West Virginia, Illinois, California, and Kentucky.
Jonathan and Kristi have lived in Kentucky for 13 years, 10 of those in Hardin County. They began Elevate youth outreach in 2012 in Bardstown, and now feel a calling from the Lord to expand into Elevate Outreach Ministries as a way to live out their calling to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As part of that vision, they believe God has led them to the Radcliff Area.
Both Jonathan and Kristi have spent time working in the Radcliff area, Jonathan as an electrician and Kristi as a elementary school teacher.
Jonathan and Kristi, along with their three children, Emily, Esabella, and Easton, believe it is their life calling to serve the Lord Jesus by serving others. They would love to see you come be part of God is doing with Elevate and help you have a life changing experience!

Just as God has called us to lead, that means he has called us just as much to serve. Serving is the true meaning of leadership, and we are all here to fulfill that calling he has placed on each of our lives.
