I was born into a Christian home December 17, 1951 the oldest of four. My wife Alice and I embraced Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord at age 25 and are blessed with two sons and their wives and five grandchildren. I served eight years as pastor at Faith Evangelical Free Church in Sparta, WI followed by eight years in Milwaukee, WI. I currently live in Columbia, MO and serve with Interim Pastors Ministries. I am excited to serve at Compass as our new church home, seeing God’s blessing on this church fellowship.
Duff Bottorff Bio
My wife Marian and I have called Columbia and Compass our home for over 20 years. We have three children; Allyn and his wife Molly with their three kids here in Columbia; Sarah and her husband David and their baby girl living in Deerfield, Ill; and Danny and wife Hannah also living in Columbia. Marian and I have served at Compass in various areas over the years. I am now retired from my work as an operations instructor at the Callaway Nuclear plant with the intent to serve God and His church in whatever capacity He would have me serve, and I am honored and humbled to serve once again as an elder. I love our church and I am excited about what God has for us in this community. I do believe that His best is yet to come!
Corey Webel Bio
I grew up attending Compass Church with my family throughout most of the 80s and 90s, and became a Christian at a young age. My wife Melissa and I were married in 2006, and after 7 years living on the East Coast, we moved back to Columbia and started attending Compass Church shortly thereafter. We have three children: Emma Grace (9), Harrison (7), and Elliot (4).
At Compass, I have been involved with a number of ministries, including the worship team, children’s ministry (e.g., AWANA), connection groups, and adult education. I have served as an elder for the past three years.
One of my passions is related to issues of compassion and justice in our community and world. I have a deep conviction about the role of the Church in caring for the marginalized and working to correct injustices, as a testimony to the Kingdom that Jesus inaugurated through his life, death, and resurrection. I have been blessed and humbled by the faith of Compass members who have stepped into uncomfortable spaces to better understand and address the needs of individuals and disadvantaged communities in our city.
I am excited about the future for Compass Church and I have been encouraged by the faithful and committed service exercised by leaders in a variety of settings. I believe that God has a plan for this church and I am looking forward to seeing how He carries it out.
