Attend Christ Community?

Meet the Team

Our pastors love the Lord, the Word of God,
and the community in and around Christ Community.


Jeff Ehrhardt |

Senior Pastor

Jeff serves as the senior pastor of the church leading in vision, preaching, teaching, and pastoral care. Having served for 15 years in pastoral ministry at Lakeview Christian Center in New Orleans, Jeff was sent to lead a team to begin Christ Community Church in 2012. God awakened Jeff to saving faith in September of 1987. He felt the leading of the Lord toward ministry while attending LSU, and later transferred to New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where he earned a degree in Pastoral Ministry. 

Jeff would not be the man, father, and pastor he is without the love and support of his wife, Kathy. Jeff met Kathy on a missions trip in Mexico, got married in 1998, and they have five daughters and a son.

Kerr Howell joined the pastoral team in 2022 after planting home churches in Spokane, Wa for seven years. As the Associate Pastor of Family Discipleship, Kerr leads and serves the church by helping create a culture of becoming Jesus apprentices.
