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 9 years, 7 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!
The Johnson Family was established 2013 In Okinawa Japan while serving as United States Marines. By, early 2014 Kevin and Devi transitioned out of the Marine Corps in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Five years later, God moved the Johnson family to Radcliff, Kentucky.
Kevin was saved in 2013. for a few years Kevin rejected the idea of being a minister or a leader within a church. Prior to leaving to Kentucky, God placed a burden in his heart for marriages and broken families. This burden led Kevin to obtain his Bachelor’s degree in Christian Counseling from Liberty University. Kevin is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Mental Health. This will equip him with a Kentucky State license and Status as LCP. This gives him the ability to practice as a counselor in the State of Kentucky.
Kevin and Devi joined Elevate in early 2019 and began to see the need and why God had moved them from their beloved coast. Kevin and Devi recognized the need after spending time in the community they moved to, the need was great within their own community. As they begin to pray God brought families together to do a work in Radcliff.
With their three children: Emilio, Caleb, and Mily the Johnson family is confident God will change lives in our community.
Matt and Rosie McCaslin met while both were in the Army and stationed in South Korea in 2002. They were married in 2004 and came to Kentucky in 2016 when they were stationed at Fort Knox.
Matt felt the call into ministry in 2008 shortly after being saved. His wife Rosie has always supported him in this calling, helping to run various ministries in the three countries and two states they have been stationed in since being saved. Over the past several years they have done overseas mission work in Honduras and India, endeavoring to take their children at each available opportunity.
Matt and Rosie joined Elevate in 2018 and have been praying for the ministry to grow and have a greater impact for the Lord in Kentucky and beyond. In 2020, they have seen that vision come to life and prayers answered as God has called several families to begin a church plant in Radcliff and grow the outreach.
With their three kids; Naomi, Levi, and Lilly, the McCaslin family is looking forward to fulfilling their calling and serving others in the community.
As women, we are passionate about sharing the love of God, and loving our neighbor as ourselves. We want to meet the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of women in our communities. Our goal is to to reach and encourage all age groups of women. We look forward to welcoming new ladies into our groups. We want to develop additional ladies ministries by doing as Christ mother said in John 2:5, “Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”
Heart to Serve
We have a
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. "For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
