Paster Chris Kinzler

Chris Kinzler
Senior Pastor

Chris Kinzler – Having grown up in Arkansas my whole life (GO HOGS!!!) my family and I feel tremendously blessed to serve Christ in the capacity that He has allowed us to, and we hope to continue pouring our lives into this community for the sake of His kingdom. I am married to the love of my life, Neeli and we have 5 wonderful children: Trey, Cooper, Keetin, Cross and Kenna Grace.

My hope for Pleasant Grove is that we would be a disciple-making church who boldly and unashamedly proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ and demonstrates the power of that gospel lived out through us as salt and light in the community. My prayer is that folks would know that God loves them and that they matter to Him & to us!


Steven Smith
Worship Pastor

Steven Smith – My wife, Aimee and I got married here in our home state of Arkansas in 2006. We have a passion for ministry and for connecting with people. We are often guilty of “being the last ones to leave” so consider yourself warned! We currently live in Bryant with our daughter, Katelyn, our son, Carter and our two goofy dogs (Daisy and Gage).

My desire is to see people experiencing true life in Christ. God’s incredible love for us and His longing to know us are just too good not to share! While serving our youth and leading the creative arts at Pleasant Grove, I hope to always point people towards Christ’s love and I look forward to celebrating that love with each of you as we grow together in our faith!


Sharon Bibbs
Children’s Pastor

Sharon Bibbs – I’m from Cabot, Ar. I came to Christ at a young age. I have been married to Mark for 26 years. We have two children, Brettley 18 and Brittney 17.

I was called to be a Preschool/Children’s Minister a little over 10 years ago. I studied Children’s Ministry, Leadership in Early Childhood and Christian Weekday Education, at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, TX.

I have dedicated my life to ministering to children and to families in the local church. My passion in ministry is to help children learn about God’s word by equipping volunteers/teachers to minister to kids in a loving, creative, and an age appropriate environment.
