Keegan Kingery - Lead Pastor

I enjoy going on drives thru the hills, riding my motorcycle, going shooting, hunting, fishing, and cooking (especially with my smoker).
Jarrett and Easton Weimer - Worship Leaders
Easton and Jarrett Weimer both are Colorado natives that met in South Dakota in fall of 2016. Easton came to Hot Springs on mission to help develop a church on the reservation and Jarrett has been living in Hot Springs since grade school. They met in a small local coffee shop and married the summer of 2018 and share a tremendous passion for all things music and Jesus.
Easton was raised as a youth pastors daughter and was heavily involved in the worship team at her home church most of her childhood. At 20 years old Easton attended Youth With A Mission (YWAM) where she graduated from the Discipleship Training School.
Jarrett has spent most of his life pursuing a career and life in music. At a young age Jarrett was playing in many lol bands and music groups where he really developed his craft and musicianship. Jarrett graduated from Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, CA where he studied the fundamentals of the music industry. Jarrett relocated back to Hot Springs where he began playing and leading in a small worship group. It was at this time did he feel God pursuing his heart and called him to worship. Easton and Jarrett love the community and relationships that have grown from the Hot Springs Wesleyan Church. They are honored to to serve as Worship Leaders.
Seth Pucket- Youth Director
I grew up in the area and graduated from Hot Springs High School (2005). I’ve attended the Hot Springs Wesleyan church since I was a child. After High School, I attended and graduated from the South Dakota School of Mines with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. After graduating from college I took a job working as an engineer for a communications company in Alaska. I worked in Alaska for about 4 years before moving back to the area to help run the family ranch and to pursue other business opportunities. I started helping with the youth group in the fall of 2014 and was asked to start leading the group in the fall of 2015. I'm looking forward to seeing what God does in the lives of the young men and women in our group.
Josh Scott- Business Manager
I was born and raised in the Denver Metro area of Colorado. At the age of 21, my now wife and I moved to Hot Springs for what we thought would be a short period of time. Thirteen years later, my family and I love this community and cannot imagine leaving.
I graduated from Chadron State College in 2011 with degrees in Mathematics, Business and Statistics. After teaching high school mathematics for five years, I moved into a career as an agent with New York Life.
The two greatest blessings in my life are my beautiful and supportive wife, Amanda, who has journeyed life together with me for the past sixteen years and our amazing daughter Addison. There is nothing more important to us than spending time as a family, whether it is hiking, fishing, camping or cheering on our Denver Broncos!
While I was raised in a Christian household, I never found my true love, passion and devotion to becoming a follower of Christ until I became a part of the Hot Springs Wesleyan Church. We love this church, the family we have gained by being a part of it, and its dedication to overflowing into the community. It is my honor to serve our church in the capacity of Business Manager.
Amanda West-Kids Spring Director
My happy place has always been with children. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to work with children. Growing up I babysat and helped with children's church. I grew up in a Christ-filled home traveling the world with my family as my dad served in the Army. As an adult, I married Perry in 2002. God has taken us on a wonderful adventure. We moved to Wyoming and started foster care and were blessed to have taken care of 29 children, God allowed us to keep 3 sweet kids Sheldon, Serenity, and Konnor. We moved to Edgemont in 2015 to be closer to family and to be in our home church. I love coffee and scrapbooking our family's adventures and teaching my kids all about Jesus.
