adam + natascha kling

LEAD PASTORS

Since 2006, Adam and Natascha Kling have served as youth and associate pastors in Arizona and Tennessee.  Adam has been in full time ministry since 2006 and Natascha has grown up in a church planter's home and has been active in ministry since she was 15. They have seen hundreds of students and adults come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and are passionate about loving those who feel like there is nowhere to turn or don't feel comfortable in a "church" setting. Through their journey, they have had a new dream birthed in them to plant a church in Flagstaff, Arizona.
Adam and Natascha are in their early 30's and have one daughter named Eden. Adam is an ordained minister. They love the outdoors, hunting, mountain biking, running, and anything that involves fresh air! With God’s vision, and gracious partners to help along the way, they hope to see their city changed, their community loved and each individual they reach eternally transformed.
