Like all other pastoral leaders at Church at The Epicenter, Skyler grew up in our church! As a high school student in Burnet High School, , she began attending our student ministry. As she grew in relationship to the Lord, she also grew in an understanding of ministry calling.
Skyler has several years of experience in working with children in one of our areas Christian academies. In 2015, she began to sense the Lord's call to full-time pastoral ministry. She is currently in her 2nd year of pastoral training through CLI (Christian Leader's Institute) ... a nationally-recognized leader in training pastors for leadership roles within the church.
In March of 2017, Skyler stepped into full-time service as the Children's Pastor at Church at The Epicenter. Standing beside her husband, Shane Love (guitar player for Epicenter Worship), this family is fully invested in the vision to raise up a generation of unashamed followers of Christ.
Ferrill & Shirley Standage
Ferrill and Shirley Standage moved to Kingsland, TX in 2010. They, too, believed that they were moving to Texas to retire. It took only 1 visit to Church at The Epicenter for them to realize that God had much more for them to accomplish!
Ferrill Standage was raised in Kansas. He was in public school education for 36 years. Following retirement from education, he accepted the call to serve as associate pastor in his church in Hayes, Kansas. Since that time, Ferrill has dedicated his life to serving the people of God through the local church. He currently serves the pastor over community and benevolent relations.
Shirley, too, a retired educator, serves alongside Ferrill in all areas of his ministry to the people of the church and community. Ferrill and Shirley have two children who live in Colorado.
Larry and Vickie Morrison moved to Burnet from Atlanta, Georgia in 2009. Moving to be near their children and grandchildren in Austin, they chose Burnet as home rather than living in the city again.
One visit was all it took for the Morrison's to realize that they had been led to Burnet for more than just a relocation ... God had led them here to join the Epicenter family. Larry's passion for writing and teaching made it obvious, very quickly, that he had much to offer the people of Church at The Epicenter. Licensed and ordained into the Gospel ministry in 2010, Larry joined the pastoral staff as Teaching Pastor and overseer of all small group ministries.
A former technical writer for Northwest Airlines, Larry now writes on Kingdom topics. Though not working in aviation any longer, he is still an airplane nut and is literally building an airplane in his shop! Vickie is a retired math teacher and devotes some of her time to tutoring home-schooled students at the middle school and high school levels.
