Morgan Greer

Lead Pastor

I am the Lead Pastor of Serve Community Church and I am deeply passionate about helping people find and follow Jesus, because there’s no one like Him. I believe all of us are on a spiritual journey, and I enjoy walking alongside people as their story unfolds. I’m regularly in awe that the creator of universe loves me despite my brokenness, and I believe Jesus invites all of us to experience God’s radical love.

As any good Southern California native, I love all things outdoors especially baseball, surfing, and hiking. I’m also a bit of a foodie so let’s grab a bite to eat! I graduated from UC San Diego with a BA in History, and I received a Masters of Divinity from Azusa Pacific University. Last thing about me…I’m crazy about my amazing wife, Karissa and our wonderful little guy, Luke!!!

Karissa Greer

Kids' Community Director

My name is Karissa, and I am the Kids’ Community Director (oversee Birth through 5th Grade) at Serve Community Church (SCC). I’m passionate about children coming to know their Heavenly Father’s extravagant, unconditional love for them and what it looks like to follow Jesus. I believe it takes a community to raise a child and so at SCC we want to partner with parents to help them spiritually form their children. I’m also passionate about mobilizing our church beyond its walls on Sundays. So, I will be working to catalyze our local and global partnerships.

I graduated from the University of Missouri with my BS in Medical Dietetics, then completed my boards to become a Registered Dietitian. I work part-time as a RD. I received my MA in Intercultural Studies from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA.

I have been married to my husband, Morgan, lead pastor of SCC, for 5 years and we have a high energy, joyful 1-year-old boy, Luke! In my free time, I love being outdoors, doing crafts with Luke, playing sports, playing board games with my competitive husband, and cooking new recipes!

Emily Pierce

Kids' Community Admin Catalyst

Serve Community Church has become my faith home where I’ve developed a personal connection with our Heavenly Father and am pursuing the life Jesus calls us all to lead. I enjoy cultivating relationships in Kids’ Community with children and parents, in small groups where we “do life” together, and out in the Prairie Village and greater Kansas City community. I am passionate about mobilizing the children of our church as the next generation of Jesus followers as well as helping others to find and follow Jesus.

I am a transplant from Moscow, Idaho, where I attended the University of Idaho, earning a B.S. in Biology prior to completing a Doctor of Physical Therapy at the University of Kansas Medical Center. My job as a geriatric physical therapist is very fulfilling and rewarding. In my free time I love to stay active with fitness classes and outdoor activities, traveling domestically and internationally, volunteering, cooking, reading, and watching sports.
