Meet The Team

Brian & Joy.jpeg

Brian & Joy Kitchen are the Lead Pastors here at Meramec Heights Church in Arnold, MO. Brian is credentialed through the Assemblies of God. He and his wife, Joy, along with their five children, moved back to this area in 2012 after years of ministry service in other states. Both originally from here, they were given the opportunity in 2015 to continue a legacy of ministry at Meramec Heights Church. They love the city and have a heart to see the love of God change their community.
