BRYCE, KATIE, LEIGHTON, AND SAWYER OSWALT

I (Bryce) grew up in Collins while Katie grew up in another small town in southern Iowa. We met while Katie was going to school at the University of Northern Iowa and I was working as an air traffic controller in the same town. Katie and I made northern Iowa our home for five years until we felt God calling us “back home”. We bought my grandparents old farmstead last year and have been busy cleaning up and renovating the property since. 

When making the decision to move back to rural Collins, one of our top concerns was having to leave our church knowing it may be difficult to find something similar. In God’s perfect timing, the rural Iowa church plant was in the works. We are thrilled to be part of such a positive addition to the Collins-Maxwell area.
