Church Staff

Tod Schwingel
Sr Minister

I began  my ministry with Sebring Christian in my October 1999.  My wife Cora and I have been married for 35 years.  We have two children and six grandchildren and a no small amount of pets. I graduated from Florida Christian College with a degree in Preaching and Counseling.  I enjoy spending time with my family; playing and watching sports and doing all things ministry.   

Tim McMillan
Minister of Worship and Involvement

My name is Tim McMillan and I began serving as Worship and Involvement Minister in August of 2019.  I’m a graduate of Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO with an emphasis in Biblical and Worship Studies. At OCC I met my best friend for life, Jaynie. We’ve been married 28 years and have two children who serve in worship and youth ministries.  I enjoy many activities including musical and theatre groups, outdoor scouting adventures, fishing, beach trips, and a fun round of Golf. My greatest joy is living life and sharing Jesus with people inside and outside the church.


Stephanie Powell

Children's Minister

My name is Stephanie Powell and I am one of those few embarrassed individuals who can say with her head hung low, “I was born and raised in Florida.”  I am originally from Jacksonville where one Sunday when I was in sixth grade I was thrown into a 4s and 5s class to teach, and I guess it stuck, because so many years later teaching children about God and his great love for us is my passion.  I love hiking, reading, swimming, crafts and one day I will finish the 100% handmade quilt I have been working on for close to 15 years.  I often quote song lyrics and can probably not get through an hour without quoting a movie.

Zach Evans

Youth Minister

Yo! My name is Zachariah Evans, but most people call me Zach. Okay, I'll be honest, some people also call me "donut," but if you get to know me I might just tell you that story. I am from a small town in Alabama called Eufaula. I attend Warner University in Lake Wales, FL pursuing a double major in Biblical Studies and Psychology. I absolutely love ministry but I love doing ministry for Jesus Christ even more. 

I enjoy soccer, drumming, and the occasional romance novel here and there. If your around and I'm around don't hesitate to stop by my office. I would love to get to know you!

April McNabb

I am the “secretary” here at Sebring Christian Church which means I am pretty much a gopher, do-girl. I keep things running smoothly and sometimes I even figure things out on the computer.
