Our Church Ministry

With over ninety years of combined experience, the ministry of Soul's Harbor Church is equipped for the hour in which we live. Their experience ranges from pastoring to evangelism to jail ministry to nursing home ministry to youth ministry. God has called these men to proclaim His Word during these last days:

Rev. Darren Thrasher


With over 25 years of ministering experience, Reverend Darren Thrasher has been the Pastor of Soul's Harbor Church since August of 2007. Before that, he fulfilled many roles around the church including Youth Leader, Evangelist, Daughter-Work Pastor, Musician, among others.

Rev. Dean Vanslyke

Lay Minister/Part-Time Evangelist

Reverend Dean Vanslyke has been in the ministry for over fifty years. Many of those as Pastor of a church in Bloomfield, Indiana. Following his retirement, he has started to travel intermittently preaching for local churches as well as at Soul's Harbor. He also is very instrumental in our private school.

Bro. Carson Thrasher

Our Clerical Leaders

Our clerical leaders are the individuals who play a vital role in making the church look good. Whether that be in finance, event planning, food preparation, cleaning, etc. These ladies are working behind the scenes at the majority of the happenings of Soul's Harbor Church:

Sis. Kim Thrasher

Sis. Lorinda Vanhorn

Ladies Auxiliary Leader

Our Ladies Team Leaders

Our Ladies Team Leaders are directed under Sister Lorinda Vanhorn. Each month, we have a rotation for which group cleans our fellowship hall and which group cleans our church building.
