Jeff & Tiffany Flanagan, Sr. Co-Pastors

Jeff grew up in the Oklahoma Panhandle. He attended college at Oklahoma Panhandle State, majoring in Social Science and History Education. After graduating, he served with the Peace Corps in southwestern China. Upon returning to the U.S., Jeff enrolled in the Masters of Divinity program at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS) and worked as a pastoral intern at Lenexa Baptist Church.

Tiffany grew up in Arizona and moved to Kansas to attend the University of Kansas and major in athletic training. After college, she served with AmeriCorps in eastern Kentucky and returned to Kansas City where she pursued an MPA in Non-Profit Administration from the University of Missouri Kansas City. She worked as an executive assistant to a pastor at a church in KCMO and as an advocate for victims of domestic abuse.

Tiffany and Jeff decided to further their education and spiritual growth at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. It was there that they met and soon after were married. When they completed their degrees in 2017, they moved back to Kansas City so Jeff could pursue a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies (MBTS). Tiffany began working in the women’s center at Shelter KC. Feeling the need to choose a denomination, Tiffany and Jeff decided to affiliate with the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). They began attending Harvest Ridge, where Tiffany soon became the Children’s Ministry Pastor. A year later, the church entered a transition season, and Tiffany and Jeff were asked to step in as interim co-lead pastors. In 2020 the couple was called and confirmed to continue pastoring the church. Tiffany was ordained by the ECC in 2022.
