Milt & Peggy Thompson

Co-Lead Pastors 

Pastor Milt is an Elder and the Sr. Teaching Pastor. Both as co-lead pastors, help direct the mission and vision of The Furnace.  Together, they have pastored and taught many years in the church and have a wealth of knowledge of the Word of God. Even though growing up in the church, Pastor Milt truly found Christ during the Jesus Movement in the 1970's which changed his life. Both have an extensive background in the Charismatic Faith Movement and have seen and been involved in much ministry to those who are sick and need deliverance. The Furnace is blessed to have them co-laboring with us.
