Our Church Staff
SENIOR PASTOR- Neil Olcott is our founding pastor and he has a deep desire to see people grow as disciples of Jesus and show that reality by their love for one another. Having pastored churches for over 38 years, Neil has seen a lot of good in the church and, unfortunately, much that was unbiblical and lacked grace and love. So, with the help of dear friends, and after much prayer, Compass Point was born. Pastor Neil has a BA in Biblical Studies, and both an M.Div and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
ASSISTANT PASTOR - Jessie Waller
Jessie grew up in West Monroe, Louisiana and attended a Southern Baptist Church. Jessie has felt a strong calling into full-time ministry and to share God’s truth with people who do not know Him.
Jessie served as our Pastoral Intern for one year and then became our official Assistant Pastor in January of 2022. He was ordained by the church in November of 2022. He also has experience with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) which has allowed him to receive intense training and then to serve as a missionary in Japan and Cambodia.
