Pastor Bryan Shaffer
Pastor Bryan Shaffer began ministering at Eagle Heights in March, 2020. Bryan and Vanessa Shaffer were married, July 14, 2007. God has blessed their family with two children Liam and Abigail! Pastor enjoys spending time with his family, as well as laboring together with the people of Eagle Heights Baptist Church. Bryan graduated from West Coast Baptist College in 2007. Following graduation he worked in assistant roles until the Lord led him to become the pastor of Northwest Baptist Church in Leavenworth, Kansas in 2012. Pastor Shaffer was eventually led to become the pastor at Liberty Baptist Church in Toledo, Ohio, before coming to Eagle Heights. God placed a specific desire to minister in the Kansas City Northland in pastor Shaffer's heart several years before bringing him to the place for that vision and desire to be fulfilled!
Matt Krawiec - Assistant Pastor
Matt has had the desire for full-time ministry since attending a Christian camp as a teen but until coming to Eagle Heights in September, 2020, he always needed to maintain a part-time or full-time job on the side. Matt graduated from Baptist College of Ministry in 2007 and continued on to graduate with his masters in 2009. Matt worked as a counselor for a couple of summers following graduation and in 2010 he spent three months serving with missionaries in Cameroon. From 2011-2020 he served as at Woodridge Baptist Church in Woodridge, Illinois while working various other jobs. On June 14, 2013 Matt and Jessica were married and they have three daughters, Jocelyn (2015), Vanessa (2017), and Mattigan (2019). In his free time, Matt enjoys playing board games, being outdoors, or building things in his woodshop. Following the Lord's leading to join the team at Eagle Heights has been a joy and an answer to much prayer.
Rich Tozour - Staff Evangelist
Rich and Angela Tozour have traveled in full-time evangelism since June 1994. The two met at Pensacola Christian College (Florida) after Rich had graduated with a B.A. in Bible and was traveling (3 ½ years) as a college representative (One year of travel was oversees: 61 missionary schools in 36 countries and territories, 5 continents). They joined Eagle Heights Baptist Church in Kansas City in August 1993. Both taught in the church’s school for a year. Rich was ordained by Eagle Heights in January 1994. Later that year, they launched out into evangelism. Now traveling over 25 years, they have lived in 5th wheel trailers (their only homes) and have raised three daughters, Briana (married to Andrew Spence), Heather, and Lanae [la-NAY]. Rich has been to all 50 states (Angela lacks one—North Dakota!) and he has preached in 43 states at last count. Rich’s passion is sound textual preaching targeting revival and the growth of the saints as well as the salvation of lost souls.
