Head Pastor

After 21 years in Pennsylvania, Terri and I made the move to Oklahoma in 2017. We are grateful to serve a loving and caring group of people. Our goal is to share the hope of Christ with all who come.

wes hostler

pastor of student ministries

Wesley Hostler grew up on College Street just a few blocks away from Bethany Nazarene College (Southern Nazarene University SNU). He loved church because nothing is more contagious than a children's director who is passionate about Jesus and puppets.  After his parent's divorce, Wes found it difficult to be passionate about Jesus during his teen years. God's plan to restore that relationship began with Sonic drinks and a Nazarene girl named Kristy.  Because of her, Wes found important friendships at Southern Nazarene University and Oklahoma City First Church of the Nazarene.  
Kristy and Wes were married in 1993 and moved to Claremore in 1997, where  they have served the local Nazarene Church for over 20 years. They have one daughter Alyssa and one son Connor.  Wes experienced a crisis moment in 2003 that completely restored a passion for God's purpose in his life.  A renewed heart and mind led Wes to teen ministry and preparation at Nazarene Bible College. Wes is currently serving as the Student Ministries Pastor and Kristy is serving as worship director.

kristy hostler

worship director

I am a wife to Wes, mom to Alyssa and Connor, and loving teacher to 300+ students at Roosa Elementary.  I grew up in Bethany, OK and attended OKC First Church of the Nazarene.  Many wonderful pastors and their families shaped my life there.  I have led worship at Claremore Church of the Nazarene for 18 years.
We have a blended worship service, singing contemporary worship songs and hymns and everything in between.  More than anything, I want to authentically worship Him and humbly ask that you join me.  He is worthy to be praised!

administrative assistant

Bret and I have been married 33 years and in pastoral ministry since 1996.  Before then, we led a youth group in Perrysburg, OH.  In the years since 1996, we have lived in Greenville, Ebensburg, and Butler PA.  We do not have any children, but our dog Ariella keeps us young.  
As I attempt to keep things organized in the office, I pray I can share the love of Christ to those who either stop in or call in.  My prayer is that all calls and visits will be an opportunity.
