Associate Pastor, Angela Kay Haigler, was born in Casper, WY and raised in the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, by her Mother and by her Father who owned “The World Famous Wonder Bar”, a rough and tough rock-n-roll bar in Casper, Wyoming. She suffered substance and alcohol abuse until she embraced and accepted the love of Jesus Christ in 1992.

She began immediately embarking on a faith filled adventure that revealed the truth, love and grace offered by Jesus Christ. Her immediate desire to be in the ministry led her to receive a degree from Rhema Correspondence Bible School, become an Ordained Minister and now the Associate Pastor of Word Christian Fellowship Church in Casper, Wyoming.
