Madera Church Staff

Lead Pastor:
Bill White
Pastor Bill and his wife, Megan, married in 2001. They served in CO (2002-2008) and IL (2008-2019) before being called by the Lord to plant a church here in AZ. Bill’s passion is sharing the hope of Jesus, partnering with parents, and equipping people to use their gifts for God’s glory. He received a BA in Bible & Theology in 2002 and completed a MA in Spiritual Formation in 2016. Bill loves being with people, but get’s recharged by being alone in God’s creation. He enjoys hiking in the mountains, hunting big game, nature photography, and going on drives with his family to look for wildlife. A favorite passage from the Bible, amongst many, is 2 Corinthians 5:11-21. 
Worship Experience Director:
Victor Corrales 
Victor C. was born in Phoenix and is our only staff member native to Arizona. He spent 12 years serving as a Youth ministry and Music Director and is also currently on staff at Evangelical Free Church of Green Valley where he has served for 2 years. Victor and his wife Milca want to be a light in our community and he particularly has a heart to minister to broken homes and hurting hearts here in the desert. Victor enjoys both watching and play football and soccer, as well as making and playing music. His favorite verse is Psalm 37:4. 
Children Ministry Co-Director:
Beverly Paschen
Beverly has served in children’s ministry for over 20 years. Her favorite part of ministry with kids is the opportunity to teach about Jesus and His love for them. She loves the challenge of being creative in teaching God’s word so kids engage and listen.  Children’s Choirs have a special place in her heart. Beverly and her husband, Andy, also have a passion for prayer ministry and she partners with him as he oversees our prayer ministry within Madera Church. Her favorite Bible verse is Romans 12:2. 
 Children Ministry Co-Director:
Abby Brayer
Abby accepted Christ as her personal Savior at 6 and her passion is to show children that they are not too young to understand the Gospel and let God use their whole lives to grow in His grace and knowledge. God put it on her heart to attend a Bible College and get a degree in elementary education. She has used that knowledge to work in Christian and public schools as well as homeschool her own daughters. Abby has been a Children’s ministry director of preschool age and taught kids of all ages in church for many years. Her hobbies include reading a good historical fiction book, hiking, and baking. It is Abby”s  joy to be a helpmate to her husband and a mom to her 3 awesome daughters. Her favorite verse is Galatians 2:20.
 Home Groups and Outreach Pastor:
Linc Brayer
Linc served as a youth & family pastor in Sahuarita for seven years, after serving as a pastor at a rural church in Iowa. He received his BA in Journalism at UW- Madison, and did seminary graduate work at Calvary Theological Seminary in Kansas City.  He loves people in general, and has a special heart for “outsiders” and the unchurched. Building friendships and discussing God’s Word and how it relates to real life are his passion, so Small Groups and Outreach are a good fit. Linc enjoys music and movies, hiking, tennis, and cooking and eating good food! He also loves just hanging out with his bride of 20 years and three beautiful daughters. Linc’s life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6.  
Worship Leader:

Victor loves hearing the congregation sing as he leads and hopes the Lord will touch hearts, the same way He touches his own. For fun Victor enjoys singing, playing instruments and working around the yard with his family. He and his wife Jessica are excited to join the Madera Church team. His favorite verse is Psalm 13:5-6. 
Social Media Director:
Megan Miller
Megan loves to bring her knowledge of technology and communication to grow ministries. She serves as the IT Coordinator on staff at her home church in Iowa. She also served as the Co-Director for VBS and Day Camp for two years and assisted with planning the Children’s Ministry for four years. Megan was born and raised in Iowa.
