  • Krystal Sponsel

    Children's Director

    Krystal has a passion to help children know, love, and follow Jesus Christ. Her heart for children comes shining through every time she is with them.  Her goal is to help establish and run an excellent Children's Ministry. One that makes it easy for the children to fall in love with Jesus and the bible coupled with training parents and teachers to be the best they can be at being examples of God's love.

  • Jay Nelson

    Youth  Director

    Jay grew up attending church but it was not until this past year that he really began pursuing God and searching for truth.  Through a series of events, Jay came to the end of himself and realized he needed Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior and he was born again.  His wife Courtney came to the same realization and she too was born again.  Now, they are a powerhouse team for the Lord as they lead our Youth.  In February, they became parents to a beautiful baby boy named Oliver. 


  • ray havens

    college ministry director

    Ray was born in Florida and has lived in many places as an army brat like South Carolina, Germany, and a few places in Georgia.

    He received Christ after a friend on the wresting team shared the love of Christ with him.  Since that time Ray has shared the love of Christ with all in which he comes in contact.  Ray felt led to Reliant to continue his growth in the ministry and leadership. He has a heart to see his generation have a restored faith in the Lord, the ministry, and Christ's bride, the church. 

  • Alan Pollock

    Men's Ministry Coordinator

    Alan was born and raised right here in Paulding county graduating from Paulding High School.  After some time in the military, He visited a church and was led to Christ by the pastor the following week in his home.  After many years of trials and struggles, Alan began to see the need for life changing discipleship in his life and the lives of others.  "Reliant has given me the tools to mentor others using my past experiences to help other men in their walk for Christ." Alan focuses his energy on building the men of the church through "Relational Reconciliation." 

  • Kim Sizemore

    Women's Ministry coordinator

    Kim was saved and baptized at age 9.  She felt a strong calling of God on her life as a teenager.  She graduated from Baptist Bible College in 1995 with a degree in Bible and Youth Ministry. Kim's passion is mentoring women and helping them see and understand their identity in Christ. Bill and Kim have two amazing daughter's, Katie and Kellie. And as of the Fall of 2014, a wonderful son-in-law, Connor Tyndall.  

  • Gentry sarber

    executive assistant to the lead pastor

    Gentry was called to follow Christ at age 15 while beholding the beauty of God overlooking a lake after a youth camp chapel service. After relocating to Georgia in 2009, Gentry's family was invited to Reliant by their neighbors down the street.  Visiting for the first time in Pastor Bill's garage they knew God had more for them here. "My greatest fulfillment comes from seeing God use me in ways I never thought worthy or able to be used.  My greatest joy is seeing my kids and family change through our relationship with God and the unwavering love and strength He gives and shows to us."
