Staff

  • Dan Kopp

    Lead Pastor

         I was born and raised in the Catholic Church and I like to say that about the time I graduated from Fraser High School I also graduated from my belief in God. When I enrolled in Oakland University I became a pretty hardcore atheist for a handful of years. But after graduating and getting an engineering job at General Motors, I became open to God once again. I had a spiritual reawakening of my faith in my 20s and found myself moving to California to attend seminary where I received a Masters of of Divinity. Fast forward to 2010 which is when God called Kellie and me to plant this church!

  • Brad Stull

    Associate Pastor

          Born and raised in Canada, I moved to the U.S. in 1994, after receiving my Bachelor's degree in Religious Studies. I was blessed with an amazing wife and two beautiful daughters. However, tragedy struck on May 13, 2017, when my partner of 30 years died suddenly and without warning. Devastated by our loss, my mind could not conceive of an abundant life - yet, my spirit knew that God had His hand on every aspect of my heart and life. Though I was raised a believer in Jesus Christ, it was on that horrible day that I learned how real and faithful God truly is. Music has always been a passion, and the Lord continued to complete the good work He began in me by using music and people every single day to minister healing.
          On January 1, 2019, I married my wife, Lisa, a seasoned worship leader, and we continued to focus our lives on the endeavor of lifelong music to our King. Together, we have five (5) children, so there is never a dull moment. My late wife’s mother also remains an integral part of our day-to-day lives as we surround ourselves with love and faith.
          Our lives took another abrupt turn in 2019, when my position was eliminated and I lost my job of 16 years. Again, suddenly and without warning, we were faced with a major transition. We spent one year praying and asking God to direct our paths. A result of those prayers was my joining staff at The Mission in February, 2020. Though she had left the legal field to pursue worship full-time, Lisa returned to work at a law firm and we see God’s provision every day. My favorite volunteer position at The Mission is playing guitar and drums for our Worship & Prayer Nights on the first and third Fridays of each month. Here, my soul is alive in a way that never seemed possible, and it is incredibly fulfilling to do so alongside my wife, Lisa.
          My story is almost certainly different than yours, but our God is the same yesterday, today and forever. No matter what challenges this earth brings our way, He is the answer. Our all-sufficient Savior is our future and our Hope. I am honored to serve you and your families at The Mission. Peace and blessings!

  • Jenny Mason

    Executive Administrator

          I am an ordained minister in the Wesleyan Church and have served in the ministry for over 15 years. I enjoy community development and love serving those who desperately need to know and feel the love of Christ. I have been fortunate to work in several different pastoral roles within the traditional church setting. As well, have had the great opportunity to work in the nontraditional church realm as the founder and executive director of a 501c3 nonprofit, anti-human trafficking organization and service provider.

         In addition to serving at The Mission Church, I am currently developing a community outreach marketplace ministry for Macomb County. I feel great joy in being part of this amazing team at The Mission and I am excited to experience all that God has in store for His Church.

         I have been married to my husband, Rich, for 22 years and have two beautiful adult daughters, Lauren and Ashlyn. I absolutely love nature, biking, kayaking, reading, laughing, and being with the ones I love. God is truly so good to us, I feel blessed daily to enjoy the life He has given me.
