Eric Geil – Senior Pastor
I am one of the rare people who call the Triangle home that actually grew up here! Born and raised in Raleigh, I graduated from UNC and then did my seminary training at Princeton Theological Seminary. I’ve been blessed to serve the Lord in churches in California, N. Ireland, Illinois, and North Carolina. My wife, Maxine, is my greatest helper, cheerleader, and encourager. She is an incredible Kindergarten teacher who regales the family with stories about her “little people”. We have three wonderful children who keep us busy, Daniel, Molly, and Riley. I enjoy time with my family and friends, helping out with ministries like Young Life and Wyldlife, building furniture, hunting, and reading a good book.
Jason Scoles – Children and Youth Ministry Director
I am one of the ever-growing numbers of mid-westerners landing in the Triangle area. My wife, Darcy, and I are high school sweethearts that grew up in Michigan. I double-majored in biblical studies and communication studies at Kuyper College. I have been serving in student ministry for over 10 years and kids ministry for 3 years. We have a new daughter (Ruby) and cat (Olive) who take a lot of our attention. We love NC and the Cary area, and are excited to serve in this community. I enjoy working with kids and youth (which is a good thing considering the vocation I am in), hanging with my fam, mountain biking, coffeeshops, camping, backpacking, and a good cheeseburger.
Kathryn Fiebich – Administrative Assistant
I grew up in Beaufort, NC but lived in St Louis, MO and Los Angeles, CA most of my adult life. My family and I moved back East about 3 years ago to be closer to my parents. I’m the mother of 2 interesting and funny young people; Calvin, age 12, and Chelsea, age 10. Currently, my hobbies include getting my children (and hubby) where they need to be and making sure they are clothed and fed. Every now and again I read, exercise, and take art classes.
David Bankert – Worship Music Director
Will Dykstra, Chair
Scott Huss, Vise-chair
Jon Stocker, Treasurer
I was born and raised in a small town in northern Illinois. After traveling far and wide for school, I landed in North Carolina almost 18 years ago for work. I met my wife in NC and have been blessed with two wonderful kids, Hannah and Daniel. I grew up in a Christian family and really made my faith my own while in college. God has been awesome and faithful at every turn of my life, blessing me beyond imagination! I enjoy working out, sports and music with the kids, and reading a good sci-fi or theology book.
Angela Froese, Secretary & Pastor Relations Committee
My family and I came to Cary from Canada in 2010 and found a church home at Westhigh. We took a little detour and lived in Germany from 2013-2016 with my husband’s work. I am privileged to have 3 daughters and be a stay at home mom. I love to travel, walk with friends, read, take photos and create books with my photos. I have been enjoying the role of secretary for the WH church council this year.
Carol Reightler, Financial Secretary
I’ve been attending Westhigh ECC for several years, having moved to Apex from Maryland in 2009. Much of my free time is spent making quilts to donate to children in hospitals, and for veterans of our armed forces who have been touched by war. I continue to grow in my relationship with Christ through Pastor Eric’s scripture-based messages, and the support of believers in various small groups.
