meet our staff

Neil Oldham

Neil helps lead our church, is our primary speaker and often helps with music.


Born here, Neil spent most of his life as a lonely Tigers & Saints fan in places like New Mexico, Oklahoma and Missouri. He worked as a middle school teacher and then as a worship pastor before moving back to Louisiana to pastor Cypress Street Church in 2014. Neil graduated from Mid-America Christian University. He is married to Julie and they have two kids, Hadley & Peter. They'd love to meet you!

Donna Ward

Donna leads our Children's Church Ministry and also serves on our Children's Ministry Team.


Donna is often the first children's leader our guests get to know. She has a God-given heart and giftedness for ministering to kids! Donna taught for many years at Kiroli Elementary, right here in West Monroe. When she retired, God's call on her life was not erased and she continued to volunteer her time both at Kiroli and here in our Cypress Street Kids ministry. 

JOB OPENING

We are currently seeking a part-time leader for our Student Ministry, grades 6-12.


In the meantime, our Student Ministry Team continues to do a great job leading our youth ministry. Pastor Neil works closely with the team during this transition to make sure they have all the support they need. We are excited for what God has in store for this vital ministry of our church.
