Church Staff

We are so glad that you have visited this website, and we hope that you will come meet us in person. Gallipolis Christian Church is a welcoming place where anyone and everyone is invited to come encounter God! 

  • Joe Bowers - LEAD Minister

    Joe was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. A graduate of Johnson University in Knoxville, Tennessee with a Bachelor's degree in Preaching and Church Leadership, he has also completed a portion of his Master's degree in New Testament studies. Assuming the role of preaching ministry and church leadership, Joe shares the Gospel in ways that form disciples who can then train more disciples. His interests are proclaiming truth from the Word of God, running in town, kayaking, and spending time with his family. Joe and his wife, Kyli (see below), have three beautiful children (Ada Kay, Mirabelle Louise, and Hudson William) who bless their lives everyday! They are excited to strengthen the faith of believers at Gallipolis Christian Church and to share the hope of Christ with many others in the surrounding area!  Email Joe

  • Kyli Bowers - Children's Minister

    Kyli was raised in Greentown, Indiana and went on to study children's ministry at Johnson University in Knoxville, Tennessee. Following her graduation with a Bachelor's degree in Preschool Directing and Children's Ministry, she now leads the Gallipolis Christian Church in ministry to children from birth through 5th grade. Her passions include teaching children the Bible, sharing God's love for them, playing many different sports, and spending time with her children: Ada Kay, Mirabelle Louise, and Hudson William. She is married to Joe Bowers (see above)! Kyli hopes to make an impact for Christ in the lives of young people in Gallipolis!  Email Kyli

  • Scott Janey - Student Minister

    Scott has served the student ministry of GCC for over 20 years. While continuing to work his day job at CarQuest in Gallipolis, he has offered to lead our middle school and high school ministries. Scott has a servant's heart, he loves working with young people, and many would say that he is still a big kid himself. We believe Scott has a way of breaking down Scripture to offer practical truth for the everyday lives of the youth in our church. Please keep Scott in your prayers as he leads this ministry in a part time capacity! Scott also serves as a drummer in our worship team, and a regular volunteer in our children's ministry.  Email Scott

  • Christian Stewart - Worship & Outreach Minister

    Christian recently finished his Master's degree in Strategic Ministry from Johnson University, after receiving his Bachelor's in Preaching and Church Leadership (also from Johnson). He is excited to join our team as he ministers to the families of our church. Christian will guide our worship in a way that freshly captures the Gospel each time we gather, and he will help us reach new people and stay connected as a church family. Small groups, community events, and service projects will all fall under his ministry in our local church. Christian grew up in Hillsboro, MO - and more recently worked with Christ's Church of the Valley in Phoenix, AZ and Eagle Christian Church in Eagle, ID. Christian is new to this area, but excited to serve. Please help him feel at home here at GCC!

Meet the Leadership

Our church leadership is comprised of some pretty unique people from throughout our community who volunteer to help make this local church serve its purpose. We have a motto: "We will work extremely hard, but we will laugh even harder." It's easy to get caught up in the distractions of life, but we as leaders hope to set the example for Christian joy, especially as we serve God and our local church. Each of us consider GCC to be our extended family and our second home. Thank you for letting us serve in ministry as Overseers and Deacons!
