Chris Brock

Connections Pastor


My redemption story started when I thought I made a decision for Jesus at 8 years old. When I was 13 years old I was on a Teen Retreat in Snowshoe, West Virginia when a friend cared enough to talk to me about my relationship with Jesus. His name was Shane and he asked about my story. I shared with him that when I was 8 years old I really didn't understand who Jesus was or what he did for. He made it clear that in eternity hell would be my home. I was lost and needed Jesus. I prayed to receive Christ as my savior at 13 years old!

I still had many ungodly influences in my life. I later became addicted to alcohol and this took me down a very dark road. By the age of 14 I was drinking pretty much every weekend. This lifestyle came to an abrupt end just before my 16th birthday. I was with a group of friends indulging in the flesh I became severely intoxicated and to make a long story short, I wound up in an emergency room where my heart stopped, and my kidney's shut down. I woke up a couple days later with absolutely no lasting injuries. God is a good God and I have been mightily blessed. Please keep in mind that before this I never missed a Sunday or Wednesday or even a Monday night visitation. When I went back to church I completely focused on the wrong thing. Everyone I had played church around for the last five years immediately said we told you so. I knew that I had lived hell at school and work and Jesus at church. I also knew that I didn't remember a single time when anyone told me the life I was leading was wrong. So after that I walked out of church exclaiming in my mind that the Christian church was nothing more than a bunch of hypocrites. I began to pour all my time into work spending 40hrs a week at a part time job. I decided I wasn't going back to church. God introduced me to another person who would be influential at this point in my life. I had began to draw even further away from Christ. Jonathan was a close friend and one weeknight in a McDonald's drive-thru he gave me a rude awakening he said "Brock I love you and you are one of my best friends but as long as you are living the life you're living and you do the things you do, I can't be around you anymore"! I told him that his friendship meant more to me than that and that if he would help me I would try to change. I went to church with him that week twice and by the the time it was over I asked God the first thing I had ever asked since my salvation. For the first time in my life I truly saw the love of God through people. Within 2 months I had answered a call to preach and my life was forever changed. I have been preaching since 1996 and have never looked back. I have had the honor of leading people to Jesus everywhere God's plan has taken me. My purpose is to equip people of God to accomplish what it is God has called them to do. Over the years this has taken on many roles. Whether I have been a student, young adults, or connections pastor I have always found my purpose in loving people!

Amanda Doran

Children's Ministry Director

Hi, my name is Amanda Doran and I am the children’s ministry director here at Liberty. I didn’t grow up in church, I started going with a friend as a teenager and I struggled with my salvation for years until I was an adult. I ran from God for a long time. As I was sitting in church one day, I could feel God pulling me, my heart felt like it was going to beat out of my chest. As soon as the altar call was given, I stepped out of the pew I was sitting in. God met me where I stood that day and carried me to the altar where I gave my life to Him. My life hasn’t been the same since that day. I have seen God move in so many ways and I get to experience his love and unending grace daily. 


It is such a privilege to serve the Lord over our children’s ministry. My desire is that each child will come to know God’s amazing love in his/her life. I want to partner with parents to help kids become firm in the foundation of their relationship with Jesus Christ. I know God has big plans for our Liberty Kids and I am blessed to be a small part of that plan as I serve alongside our amazing volunteers. If you are interested in children’s ministry, I would love to speak with you. Feel free to send me an email or see me in person on Sunday mornings. I look forward to meeting you!

Women's Ministry

When I was nine years old, I dealt with the death of a very close family member. I had a talk with my grandma and realized that I wanted God to be in my life. So, in her living room, I asked God to come into my heart and I wanted to live for him. I was very involved in my youth group all through middle school but once I got into high school, I started living any way I wanted, not caring about the consequences. Even after I got married, my husband was a "christian" as well, but we weren't living for him like we should. We got invited to Liberty in October 2015, and then I felt the holy spirit speak to me and I realized I wanted to live for him again, and I rededicated my life to him. I've been living for God ever since. 


I have been the ladies ministry leader at Liberty since January of 2017. I'm blessed to be married to my best friend, Ray of 17 years. We have two wonderful kids, Hailey and Jace. We love to hang out with family and friends, play games, go hiking, go on new adventures, cook and eat. I have learned that the fellowship of  fellow believers is so crucial in my walk with Christ. I'm blessed for those surrounding me. I hope we have new families joining ours.

On June 9th, 2017, after years of serving at Liberty, I found myself truly walking into a relationship with Christ for the first time.  My passion to see others come to know God and grow in their relationship with him fuels my drive as a member of Liberty's staff.  God has gifted me with a know-how in using technology to help connect those who attend Liberty and many more.
