David Halliburton

President, Board of Directors

David Halliburton is the Community Life Pastor at Hope Church in Kalispell, Montana, with 30 years of experience. He oversees and facilitates community outreach, training great leaders, building effective teams, and leading individuals through personal healing. As someone who experienced sexual abuse as a child, his passion is to journey with the brokenhearted, engaging their stories of captivity, inviting Jesus's healing power to set them free. This desire birthed TrueNorth 406 Ministries, in which David acts as both the co-founder and President of the Board of Directors. This ministry exists to share the hope of freedom and transformation David has personally experienced and to provide a safe place for this healing work to continue.

Kirk Kirlin

Board Member

In 1987 God called Kirk to walk with pastors and Christian influencers as a catalytic change agent. As a result, he began to equip, coach, and mentor pastors to be effective, influential leaders by focusing on their character. Also, he worked with congregations and their leaders to demonstrate the Gospel regularly, generously, and unconditionally to those outside the Church. The result is authentic, vulnerable, God-needy leaders who influence their congregations to live like missionaries wherever they are.

 

Kirk has been a Christ-follower for more than 40 years and ministers from a life experience replete with sorrows and surprises. He holds an M. Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary, an MBA from Harvard University, and a B.S. from Purdue University. Since 2000, he has served on the Refocusing Team of Novo (formerly “Church Resource Ministries”). His wife Annie received her Doctorate in Psychology in 2010 and has a private psychology practice specializing in Emotional Transformational Therapy (ETT). They have been married for 40 mostly glorious years and have six adult children.

Jon Cavigli

Secretary of the Board

Jon Cavigli recently retired from 37 years of working in the Natural Resource field of Montana. He graduated from the University of Idaho with a B.S. in Fisheries Resources in 1980. He has thoroughly enjoyed the years raising and following his three sons in their adventures with his beautiful wife “Linder.” In his teen years, Jon became a follower of Jesus and has attended the same church in Kalispell, Montana, for the past 40 years. Jon and Linda have lived in the same comfortable home for 36 years of their 38-year marriage. The longevity of these categories of life has given him a long-term perspective on the fruit of consistency. He looks forward to serving in some way or form in his community well into his retirement years. Hiking, biking, reading anything weather-related, watching sports events, BBQ grilling, tending to his indoor plants, plum trees, and tropical fish with their friend “Pollock” the Goldfish are activities that make him smile.

Jon serves on the Elder Board of Hope Church and helps lead a significant community outreach called “Hope is Here.”

Angela and Bill Schneiders

Board Members

Angela is known for her work as a Co-Founder and Senior Partner with Mission Advancement Partners, Director of Mission Advancement with Endow, and her integral role in scaling FOCUS, The Fellowship of Catholic University Students. During her 15-year career as a missionary and respected business professional, she experienced a mental health crisis that led her to ask the question, “What are the truly vital ingredients to human flourishing?” This launched her into a passionate study of cultural ecosystems and the necessary conditions for human thriving. Angela believes that as a woman pursues wholeness in the different arenas of her life, she will become a pillar on which others can lean upon to become whole.

 

After growing up in Southern California, playing college football and tasting startup success, as well as previously putting in 60 to 70 - hour weeks at Cisco Systems and other tech giants, Bill found himself cynical and unfulfilled. He began to ask the questions: How did God create us to live in the beginning? Why are so many people frustrated, unhappy and unfulfilled? What is the real and deepest purpose of life? His search for answers led him deep into the study of Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial wisdom. This journey has culminated in his discovery of his true life’s calling of helping & equipping people to discover and live their life’s mission, purpose, and passion.  Collaborating with Ryan & January Donovan, Bill helped to launch The Man School and serve as it’s Master Instructor & Strategist.
