Our Team

Pastors & Staff

Ron Lotz

Senior Pastor

I hate name tags.  I hate them because they always seem like a superficial barrier.  I prefer to ask a persons name, to take the time to get to know them and hear their story.  I hate politics of any kind and administration leaves me braindead, although I enjoy leading.  I laugh a lot and warm to a good story.  My greatest joy is being a father and husband.  I love being a pastor and shepherding my flock.  I believe the preaching of the Word of God is by far the greatest calling a man can have.  I am more comfortable in blue jeans than I am in a suit.  I love the outdoors and the musky smell of a library.  Those who know me say that I am an aesthetic and a scholar pretending to be a regular guy.  Visit Pastor Ron's Blog

Millie Veltkamp

Director of Next Generation Ministry

I wake up each day in awe that our amazing God would use me in a small way to share His gospel message with others. I am blessed to serve here at BAC by discipling children, youth and  their families, as well as supporting our outstanding team of interns  & amazing volunteer team. I have worked in children’s ministry in various capacities for over 20 years.  My family is one of my biggest joys in life. I have been with my husband Jim for over 30 years. 4 amazing children call me mom and 2 fabulous grandchildren call me grandma.  I am a simple person. I don’t get excited about material things, and value experiences over things. Moments that take my breath away are what I treasure. Time outside hiking, biking, camping, fishing, kayaking & traveling on mission, are how I relax and spend my free time. I have a heart for service, wear many hats, but most importantly, I am a life changed by Jesus.

Billy Dutton

Worship & Tech Director

This probably comes as no surprise, but I LOVE music!  All kinds of music! I love the way music can transport us to somewhere else and evoke strong emotional responses from us! Our God created music for His worship and I am BLESSED to be able to participate in this creative medium! My other passions include running long distances on trails and Star Wars (didn't see that coming did you)!I  I love  being a hubby, a daddy-OH, and a Papa!! I can be quiet and reserved sometimes, well ok not too many times, and I can laugh loud and long (my family would agree with the last one more).  I like to have fun but also crave those alone times where it is just God, me, and a trail winding up into the mountains!

First, and foremost, I am a daughter of the King and love Jesus! I am passionate about camping and youth ministry, and am especially drawn to the middle school age group. I have served as part of the Yellowstone Alliance Adventures staff team for several summers, which has truly helped me grow in my faith & confidence.  I am blessed to serve as an intern at BAC, leading the Pier 56 Ministry for 5th & 6th grade students, and helping out with children's ministry.
