Lead Pastor

Justin Chambers

Pastor Justin and Jennifer moved to Plymouth in 2004 in order to start a life-giving church. At that time, NSC was just a dream; by the grace of God, it's now a reality. From the first time you meet them, you'll see the depth of their love, not only for New Singers, but for our community.


They married in 1999 and have four beautiful children (Isaac, Isaiah, Grace and Delight). They absolutely love spending time together as a family, as well as traveling, leading mission trips and spending time outdoors. The only issue they have as a family is that Pastor Justin and his two boys are die-hard Green Bay Packer fans; Jennifer and the two girls love the Chicago Bears. Yikes!

Student Pastor

Josh Johnson

Josh Johnson joined the New Song staff in 2015 as the Student Pastor. He and his wife Mallorie have been married for 7 years and have 2 fantastic children, Graeme (5) and Rylee (3). Needless to say, they stay busy!

Together, they have a strong devotion and sincere love for teenagers and are dedicated to leading them on a journey to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference. They both love to laugh (and you may even catch Josh doing one of his many impressions)!

Worship Pastor

Raul Gonzalez

Raul Gonzalez came on as Worship Pastor in 2017. He married his wife, Jodi (who was already a member of New Song), just two months after joining the team. Talk about being dedicated to the church!

He enjoys spending time with his wife, exploring the world through photography and reading a good book. Having grown up in Miami, let's just say that northern Indiana's weather took a little getting used to! And the best part of the whole journey? He and Jodi have welcomed to the world their first daughter, baby Gabriella!

Assistant Pastor

Lowell Ott

Lowell Ott has been part of the pastoral staff at New Song Church for 13 years. Since then, he has served as New Song's Assistant Pastor, overseeing hospital care and visitation, ministry to seniors and much, much more.

Around New Song, everyone knows him because he is constantly welcoming people with the biggest smile you've ever seen!

Pastoral Counselor

Bill Krogel

Dr. Bill Krogel is our newest staff member. He's been a licensed marriage and family therapist for 25 years and taught at Grace College and Theological Seminary for the past 18 years.

He and his wife, Anita, love God, love others and love life. He's passionate about helping others grow in their relationship with the Lord and experience the freedom that God wants all of us to enjoy!

Campus Pastor - Wabash

Tony and Sherry Mercer

Pastor Tony and Sherry have been married for 20 years and have two children, Kelvin and Kendall. Since 2007, whether serving in student ministry or as lead pastors their lives have been focused on loving God and loving people. Their God-given dream of leading a life-giving church came to pass in 2019 when Pastor Justin and Jennifer Chambers, founding pastors of New Song Church in Plymouth, IN, invited them to be the Campus Pastors at NSC's second location in Wabash, IN. It won't take you long to discover what they live for - helping others know God, find freedom, discover purpose and make a difference.

Campus worship pastor - Wabash

Stan Carlile

Stan Carlile was born and raised in Indiana and is one of the oldest in his large group of siblings. He and is wife Sarah have been married since July 2016. Stan has had a passion for worship and music for a very long time and was ecstatic to join the staff as the worship leader at the Wabash campus in the Fall of 2019. His random hobbies include collecting action figures, following football (Go Colts and 49ers!), and snuggling their two kitty cats.


Sher Snedeker

Sher Snedeker has been serving in administration at NSC since 2007. She's been married to her husband, Keith, for 18 years and they have one child together (Roman). To say Sher has experienced the miraculous is an understatement. You may want to ask her about it sometime!
