Office Hours:
Monday-Friday 9:00 AM-4:00 PM



Lead Pastor: Dan Borgelt
Education and Ministry Experience: I received my Bible and Theology degree from Malone University in ’02, and then my Masters of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological seminary in ’05. After serving in youth ministry in college and seminary I have been serving as an ordained pastor in the EPC for 12 years. I’ve been here at Kirkmont since February 2015.
Job Description and Vision: As lead pastor my primary area of focus is planning our Sunday morning services, including the regular preaching. A big part of my job also involves making sure all of our various ministries and staff stay on the same page as we seek to follow where God is leading us. I have a passion to see us effectively fulfill the great commission through loving and caring outreach and intentional biblically based discipleship.

Personal: My wife and I met in college as Young Life volunteers and we’ve always shared a passion for doing ministry together. We’ve been married for 14 years and are blessed with 5 children. I absolutely love playing just about any sport, going to the movies, my favorite TV show is ‘The Office’ and I am a huge  Michigan Football Fan!

Adult Discipleship and Care Pastor: BJ Newman

Education and Ministry Experience: After completing a BA in English Literature in 2003, I enlisted in the Air National Guard and moved to Virginia Beach. While there, I taught high school English, worked in youth ministry, and started seminary at Regent University. In 2011, the Air Force sent me to the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA to complete a Farsi language program. I later completed my M.Div. from Regent in 2014. In 2016, I was ordained with the EPC to commission as an Air Force Chaplain, and subsequently joined Kirkmont as a pastor in May of 2017.

Job Description and Vision: My role at Kirkmont involves leading adult education, which includes small groups and Sunday school classes, as well as counseling and pastoral care. My vision is to inspire students of the Word to glorify God by living like Christ in every area of their lives through the Holy Spirit.

Personal: Growing up as a Buckeye in a small town on the Ohio River, where I met my wife, I inherited a love of God’s creation. I enjoy fishing, hunting, and grilling out with family. I played college baseball, and still love to workout. I am also a die-hard theology nerd who loves to read old books.

Contemporary Worship Director & Youth Ministry: Daniel Galey

Education and Ministry Experience:I graduated from Cedarville University in 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in music and a minor in Bible. While there, I served on the worship team at my local church and became involved in the discipleship ministries on campus. I officially joined Kirkmont as the contemporary worship director in July of 2017. Job Description and Vision: My role at Kirkmont involves leading the music for the contemporary service. In addition to leading worship each Sunday, I organize the praise teams, select the songs, and lead the weekly band rehearsals. I hope and pray that God uses my role as worship leader to provide a means for our congregation to glorify God as they worship him through music. Personal: I was born in Germany and lived there until 2002, when my family moved to Golden, Missouri. I met my wife at the beginning of my freshman year at Cedarville in 2013, and we have been married since June of 2017. It’s been a joy being married to her, and she has been a tremendous blessing to me in my ministry. I’m a huge German soccer and New Orleans Saints fan. I enjoy watching movies, playing sports/working out, talking about theology, and eating just about any food (especially bread and butter).

Traditional Worship Director: Amy Vaubel

Education and Ministry Experience: I graduated from Wright State University in 1998 and received my Masters of Music Education there in 2000 majoring in Vocal Pedagogy and Choral Conducting. I was on staff at WSU until 2003. I have directed church choirs in various places since 1975. I have been on staff at Kirkmont for 26 years.


Job Description and Vision: I direct the Chancel Choir, the Handbell Choir, and I support and often participate in the Praise Team at the Contemporary Service. I coordinate special music for both services, and make the schedule for those working in the AV booth. I help plan the worship services and input the information in both the bulletin and the software that appears on the screen. I substitute for Debbie Yanney, our organist. My vision is to make sure the music we do praises and points to God and is inspiring to those who hear it. I hope to encourage those with musical talents to serve God in this place using those talents.

Personal: I have been married for 48 years to my husband, Gail, whom I met in high school. We work together here as he also participates in the music and is head of our sound crew. We have 2 sons, both married, and two musical granddaughters here in Beavercreek. I am the Chorus Manager and sing with the Dayton Philharmonic Choruses, perform with Wind in the Woods Early Music Ensemble, the Sinclair Handbell Choir, and the Shakertown Stompers. I enjoy attending BHS band concerts, playing golf, watching all kinds of sports, and cheering for the Seahawks.
