Helping people develop an authentic relationship with God, and with others.

Staff & Leaders

Authentic Church is a new church re-brand and re-plant but was originally called “Heritage Chapel” located at the previous address 10255 Noble Ave. Lead pastors, Jeff and Sylvie Saxton, have been walking with the congregation on this journey. We believe this is God’s clear direction to our church leadership, board and members as the result of seeking the Spirit’s guidance.

Jeff Saxton

Pastor Jeff has been in on 8 ministry staffs, and served full-time for over 15 years in various churches, ministry organizations. His first position out of North Central University was as an associate pastor of youth (over 600 youth, college students) at a large megachurch in Omaha, NE where 4000 people weekly attended. The youth ministry had a goal of one day seeing over 100 students become full-time ministers. That goal has now become reality as Pastor Jeff stays in touch with these kids-turned-adults who minister all over the world in many, many capacities. He believes God showed him how to equip the saints to minister through this experience.
