Senior Pastors Ron and Debi Habermehl began their journey together with the Lord in February of 1981 when they surrendered their lives to Christ. They pioneered the work at Alpha & Omega Church in State Park, IL, with Gary and Susan Anderson beginning in January of 1982. They both ministered on the worship team and served in various positions in the ministry until April of 1984 when they accepted the role as pastors. Both preach and teach the Word of God with a heart to see the captives set free. Raising up another generation to advance the Kingdom in their territory remains a priority in their ministry, along with seeing each member function in their individual calling as members of one Body.
For over 30 years Pastors Ron and Debi have had a mission to demonstrate the love of God in State Park, IL. Through their leadership Alpha & Omega has been a beacon of love and mercy in State Park. Their hearts beat to be merciful and compassionate to the hurting, the oppressed, and the downtrodden. Their life's message to people has been, "God loves you and has a great plan for your life!"
Pastor Ron and Pastor Debi attended Christian Life School of Theology. They are members of Federation of Ministers and Churches in Denton, Texas, and belong to Collinsville Area Ministers Association. Pastors Ron and Debi have three children, seven grandchildren, and reside in Collinsville, IL.
