Meet Our Team

Bernie and Terri Muendel - Corps Officers (Auxilliary Lieutenants)

Bernie and Terri are our leaders here at Eastlakes. They excitedly took on the leadership role in July 2018 but have been part of our church family since it's very beginning in the early '90s. Both have been youth leaders in the past and Bernie has spent 18 years working for The Salvation Army Bridge program which is a ministry to those recovering from addiction. They are both very passionate about living life with Jesus and seeing people walking in close relationship with Him. They love to travel and go to places they've never been before. They have 4 awesome kids who also love to serve at church.
