Jim Semradek – Lead/Teaching Pastor
Hello, my name is Jim Semradek, and I have had a passion for the people of this area for over 20 years. In 1996 I felt called to this area, and began to pray for God to lead me here while serving on staff with other great churches all over the country. Then in 2008, God finally allowed me to come home and serve in this role of Pastor at Waterfront. One of the true joys of my life. My wife and four kids have grown our roots deep in this area, and see Waterfront as our second family. It would be my hope that you experience Waterfront in the same way we do…like a second home.
Jim was ordained in 1993 after receiving his undergraduate degree in Pastoral Studies from Moody Bible Institute. In 2003, he earned two Masters Degrees – One in Biblical Studies and the other in Counseling, from Reformed Theological Seminary and Asbury Seminary. Jim was accepted into the Doctorate of Ministry program at Trinity, but has “paused” that process to pastor and raise his family.
John Angle – Family Pastor
My name is John Angle and I get the privilege of being one of the Lead Servants at Waterfront. In my 20+ years in full time ministry, no matter what my role has been, my underlying passion has been to see people discover and grow in a relationship with Jesus. I serve as the Family Pastor at Waterfront and I am thrilled to be able to contribute into the lives of our next generation. One of my greatest blessings in life has been my own family. God has blessed me with a beautiful and amazing wife, Kathy. We have been married for over 32 awesome years. God has given us 5 wonderful children, a daughter-in-law and one beautiful granddaughter! I love the mission of Waterfront — Loving God and People Well — it is inspiring and one I will give my life to.
