Leadership Team

We are here to help you grow spiritually and influence you to pursue the calling God has on your life.

Dr. Tyson Lambertson

Tyson was born and raised in rural northeastern Colorado and is wired for pastoral ministry. Receiving an undergraduate degree from Southwestern Assembly of God University, he answered the call of God in 2006, launched The Rock Church in Scottsbluff, NE.


From a small beginning of just six people, the Rock has flourished, providing multiple worship service opportunities on Sunday mornings. While balancing family and ministry life with an awesome wife and three kids, he completed his Master of Arts degree from Life Pacific University and has a Doctorate of Education degree from Grand Canyon University.

 

Tyson says, "my heart is to equip leaders and pastors to fulfill the God-given call on their lives to reach 'One More!' for the gospel of Jesus Christ." He is a motivated leader who brings forth knowledge from a variety of leading platforms. Most of all, he is a committed leader who is passionate about enhancing the Kingdom of God. He also loves physical exercise and riding Harley Davidson motorcycles!

Rev. Mike Erdman

Mike Erdman was born in Scottsbluff, NE, in 1982. At 18 years old, he moved away to Laramie, Wy to start college and decided that he would live out the story of the prodigal son. 


Many years were running away from God and doing his own thing until one day; he met a man who started to show Michael the love of Jesus through it all in Douglas, Wy. Michael began to study the Word and to learn who Jesus is and began to enter into the community of a local church in Douglas. He met a beautiful woman named Jamie, who eventually became his wife and started walking through the healing process. Together they have five beautiful and challenging children.


Michael started to say “yes” to Jesus in little ways, starting with volunteering on the worship team to play bass at the Gathering in Douglas, stepping into youth ministry, and helping with events. Small, simple things God has asked him to do have become stepping stones to lead him to the next place that God is leading, and that ended up being back home in Scottsbluff, NE, at the Rock as the worship pastor. I’ve never looked for the positions that I have, but God keeps leading me, and I pray and ask for His advice in all things, and He never ceases to amaze me in His plan for my and my family’s life.


I still have much to learn, and I know that God is always showing me who He is, but I am excited to see that He is doing great things. I Praise God for what He has brought me out of and for where He is taking me. God is Good!

Angie preston

Angie was born and raised in Scottsbluff. In 2007, she graduated from Hollins University in Roanoke, VA. After a short stint in New York state teaching Environmental Education, she and Travis got married in 2008 then started their life together in Hawaii, moved to North Carolina and then Illinois. After their daughter Nora was born, Travis received an excellent job opportunity, and they moved back to Scottsbluff and to be closer to family. 


Angie never thought a position in ministry was in her future, but after serving in KIDZ Rock, God moved in her to begin working for The Rock Church. Angie is passionate about intergenerational education and mentorship and sees the power of learning through experiences. God is stretching and molding her beyond what she ever thought was possible, and she’s excited to see what God has for her in the upcoming years. 

Antonio Cortez

Antonio was born and raised in Scottsbluff. In 2020, he graduated from Scottsbluff High School. While in high school, he participated in many events, such as band, choir, show choir, musical, and orchestra. 


Antonio comes from a family of ministers and has the heart to serve. The Lord called him to The Rock Church in 2018 to volunteer on the worship team, and he has been dedicated ever since. 


“I am excited to see what God will do not only in my life but the lives that I meet along this journey.”
