Sprenger Family

Matt & Heather Sprenger

We met at the tender age of 13 and began dating our senior year of high school after Heather led me to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.  I promptly took her on a date to a Poison and Slaughter concert.  We’re glad to say it’s been uphill since:)

We dated throughout college at WVU, then married in 1995, just after Heather got her degree Psychology.  I finished up a year later with Chemical Engineering degree and we headed off to New Hampshire for

Heather’s post-grad work in Psychology.  In 1999, along came Glenna Rose.  And then, after moving back to Fairmont, Isaac came along in early 2002…which is about the same time we started helping with FSU’s Chi Alpha.  By Fall 2003, we were directing the group as volunteers.  But God was knocking.  On December 31, 2004, I retired from engineering and started my new career in campus ministry the following day.  I’ve been the campus pastor for Fairmont State Chi Alpha and on staff at Trinity Assembly of God, our primary supporter, ever since.

We all love reading, traveling together and just hanging out as a family.  I also enjoy sports, while Heather likes art.  Glenna is really into art and horseback riding, while Isaac loves getting dirty, wrestling, and risk.  Evelyn is into princess, twirling, and being amazingly cute, while Nathan captures us with his attempts not to smile.  Homeschooling is a big part of our family life, as well.  We’d love to have you come and hang out at the Sprenger Farm!

And by the way, we love our students!!

Sarah2 Halbert

Sarah got connected with Chi Alpha her freshman year at Fairmont State. She lead a Life Group for several years and began mentoring younger student leaders.  As she neared graduation she realized college ministry was a definite passion in her life.  After graduating from FSU with degrees in English and Spanish Secondary Education she spent the 2013-2014 school year completing the Campus Missionary In-Training Program with Fairmont State Chi Alpha.  While she was an intern, Sarah realized there really wasn’t any other job for her, she couldn’t imagine doing anything else.  She has committed to being a Campus Missionary Associate with Fairmont State Chi Alpha for five years and serves also as our Campus Missionary In-Training Administrator. 
And yes, she loves our students!

Staff PicturesJennifer Soltys

RJ and Jennifer Soltys met each through the set-up of their wonderful family and friends.  RJ moved up from Alabama to become a part of his family business in Fairmont, WV.  When looking for a home church he came to Trinity Assembly of God.  Sitting in service “Chi Alpha” was mentioned which immediately peaked his interest to become involved.  He had previously been a student leader in Chi Alpha at the University of South Alabama for four years. While RJ was involved with Chi Alpha in Fairmont, WV Jennifer was finishing her bachelors degree at Southeastern University.  Upon her graduation in 2010 she returned home, and God began to open doors for her to stay in Fairmont.  Once she decided to stay, that is when she met RJ Soltys.  They got married the following year, and now are enjoying married life and had their first precious baby in May 2015!

Jennifer came on staff as the student ministry assistant at Trinity, which made her a part of our Chi Alpha family.  She has a heart to serve our students in any way that she can.  RJ and Jennifer love to hangout with family and friends, and always have to have a lot of fun!!!!

By the way, they love our students!!
