The best "church leader" is a team (Ephesians 4:11).  At Exmouth Christian Fellowship, we’re blessed with an outstanding group of dedicated believers and faithful leaders who conduct services, run events, and keep our church family on a clear spiritual path.


Lead Pastor

Keith Stark

Keith is our preaching and teaching elder.  He serves our church full time, and can be reached via our church phone number.  He has both a strong calling to serve Exmouth, and a deep love for both our local and extended church family.

Keith is married to Cheryl, is the father of five daughters, and loves being "Papa Stark" to their five grandchildren.



Joshua Koontz

Josh is an elder with a wonderful gift of pastoral care.  With more than 20 years of leadership experience in our church, he brings wisdom, experience, and historic continuity.

Josh is married to Donna, has three sons, and is a fantastic diver, photographer, and a valuable member of our vital Marine Rescue team when he isn't managing our local town pool.
