Our Leadership & Staff




Andy Mason
Preaching Minister
Hello! I am Andy Mason and I was born and raised in Newark, OH. I graduated from Cincinnati Christian University in 1983 with a B.A. in Preaching/Ministry. I previously served churches in Greencastle, IN, Beaufort, NC, and Frankfort, IN prior to coming to Seminole in January 2001. I married my wife, Lori (LeMasters) in July 1982 and we have four children: Cassie Del Rio (husband, Daniel), Clare, Drew (wife, Morgan), and Max. We also have one grandson, Jacob Del Rio. I enjoy building scale models and am an avid supporter of THE Ohio State University football team. Go Bucks!

Nick Westfall
Youth Minister
I graduated from Cincinnati Christian University in 2010 and Seminary there in 2013 where I fell in love with studying God’s Word and grew an insatiable desire to teach others the Truth. Team that up with a love and passion for teens, relishing in the challenges and importance that goes into teaching them to follow Jesus, and you are now looking at the Youth Minister I am today. I’ve been in youth ministry since 2010, ordained for God’s work in 2014 and have been serving at FCCS since January 2015. I married my college sweetheart in 2012 and together we are an awesome team committed to Kingdom Work. You’ll most likely find me rooting for THE Ohio State Buckeyes throughout the fall and winter months. If that bothers you, don’t worry, I’m still Team-Jesus first above all else 😉
