Cole Deike, Lead Pastor

Cole is the happy husband to Chloe, a teacher by heart, and a lover of books. Before graduating from UNI with an English teaching degree, he grew up in small town Iowa. God made him alive in Christ at college, God called him to be a church planter at Redeemer Church in Cedar Falls, and God is shaping him as a pastor in his friendships at Frontier Church in Des Moines.

He hopes that the preaching and teaching will stir you to greater joy and devotion to the gospel at Frontier Church.



Andrew Self, Equipping Minister

Andrew has been gladly married to Tracie since 2012 and is the father to Lydia and Malachi. Before moving to Des Moines to help plant Frontier Church, he was trained for church planting at the Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, TX. His primary role in Frontier Church is equipping people to glorify Jesus and to seek the joy of Des Moines in Jesus. He loves spending time with family and neighbors in his front yard.

Andrew’s hope is for Frontier Church to be a local church who is marked by gospel hospitality and glad submission to Jesus.
