Ministry leaders, elders, administration, and maintenance team members all work together at MACC to create an environment that helps people grow in their Christian faith and commitment. Our team is dedicated to carrying out the vision of our church to make disciples, connecting people with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
Elders are servants of the church who are responsible for “shepherding the church of God, which He purchased with His own blood.” (Acts 20:28)
Elders are called to serve with their time, energies, and money to the best of their abilities. Each should be an example of the Christian life-in worship, in service, and in separation from sin.
Descriptions of elders are found in I Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9. They describe elders as “servants of God,” “overseers,” “stewards of God,” and “shepherds.” Therefore, MACC elders have the responsibility of shepherding the people and overseeing the ministries of the congregation.

Bruce Western has been a member of MACC since 1985 and has been involved with many areas of our ministry over the years. Bruce was raised in the Christian Church, and accepted Christ and was baptized at age 11. He was involved with Campus Students for Christ on the campus of WIU during his college years. After working in Human Resources at McDonough District Hospital for many years, Bruce accepted the call to come on staff at MACC as the Church Administrator. Bruce then accepted a professor position at Western Illinois University in the College of Business and also started a business in Macomb. Bruce desires to have a servant’s heart in all he does and strives to always live by the Scripture in Joshua 24:15… “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”.
Donnie Case is the Senior Minister at MACC. He absolutely loves the opportunity to teach and be taught God’s Word each week. Once someone who ran from God, Donnie now can’t think of any way he would rather spend his time than serving God’s Kingdom.
Donnie provides focus for worship at MACC as well as oversight to the staff and general ministries of the church. With the elders, Donnie sets the overall direction and goals for the church.
As the husband of Kelly and the daddy of Makenzie Jo, Haden Cole, and Ian Brock, Donnie’s joy in life centers around his family and his faith. After floundering at parenthood for several years, Donnie is starting to understand just a little bit of God’s patience and enduring love for His people!
Donnie’s heart and passion is grounded in real ministry, which he doesn’t consider a job. Through his role at MACC, Donnie desires to lead a ministry with fellow Christians who are visionaries and who desire to see lost people come into a saving relationship with Jesus.
