Kasey is our Lead Pastor. You will hear him teach on Sundays in a practical yet compelling way.

Caleb Klinger

Student Director

Caleb has been a part of Westside Family Church since 2015. After spending 3 years overseas doing university student ministry Westside was a natural place to land and begin a new type of student ministry.

Caleb has called Leavenworth home since 1988 and has deep roots here in the communities that represent Leavenworth county. Born into a military family and understanding the transitive nature of the Ft. Leavenworth student has helped him adapt to serving Middle and High School students at Westside Leavenworth. 

You can find Caleb back in The Loft most Sundays, interacting with students, leading worship, or sharing a message.
