Main Speakers

Scott Mathis became the President of the Berean Fellowship of Churches in 2016.  Before that, he pastored Berean churches in Mitchell, NE and Torrington, WY for a total of 24 years.  He and his wife Diane live near North Platte, NE.  They have two children and three grandchildren.  Scott is passionate about seeing lost people come to faith in Christ and grow as disciples.

John Stone is in his eighth year as the Lead Pastor of North Platte Berean Church. Proponent of the local church in Lincoln County, NE, he firmly believes the Church needs to both hold unswervingly to an unchanging gospel truth and be ready to change methods and strategies to adapt to a changing cultural landscape. He is a husband to Jessica and father to their four precious children.

Lorre McKeone has been the Owner/Operator of Executive Extra (a training and facilitation company) since 1986. She has helped community organizations, including the church, move through change effectively. A wife to Kert, a mother to two daughters and grandmother to five exceptional grandchildren, she loves Jesus and wants to see healthy people following Jesus.
