IHC Pastoral Staff & Ministry Leaders

  • Pastor Bart Thompson

    Lead Pastor

    After graduating from NCU, I served as a youth pastor at a few locations including Inver Hills Church, where I then transitioned to Lead Pastor. While serving on staff at IHC for over 25 years, the church has become family. I have a heart for missions, a passion for the lost, a desire for the church to experience God's presence, and a calling to to lead others towards an encounter with Jesus.

    When I'm not in the office, you can find me ministering to the wildlife on the lake or from a tree stand. 


  • Pastor Lisa Kaufenberg

    Family Relations & Associate Pastor

    Called into the ministry as a teenager at a winter retreat, I graduated from NCU with a degree in youth ministry. Since then I have served in various roles in the church, including youth, associate, and children's ministry. I have a passion to see kids and their families experience the love of God and am excited to be serving at Inver Hills Church along with my husband Scott and our daughters Macey and Allie. Our family enjoys fishing together and are also board game enthusiasts! A recent favorite: Wordsearch!
