Elders

Marvin Suson

Marv is a professional violinist and violist. He came to know Christ after journeying through a couple of cults during his college and graduate years.   As a result, when Marv came to know the real Jesus, he had a thirst and drive to understand scripture so that he would never be deceived again.  Marv has devoted his life to the reading and grasping of scripture to ensure an authentic walk with God.  He is an advocate for one-on-one discipleship, which he practices within and beyond Meadowbrook.

Marv and his wife Joie joined Meadowbrook in 1994.  They have four children, Jessica and Matthew who are college age and Andrew and David who are in high school.  He has been involved in worship leading, led adult Bible studies and classes and has served in NextGen ministries as well.

In 2011 Marv became an elder and in 2013 became the chairman of the elder board.  He is the liaison to the HR Operations Team. Marv continues to serve as a musician during worship, a soundboard operator and a member of the Celebration leadership team.


Greg Alles

Greg grew up in Colorado and later moved to Milwaukee in 2001 where he started his own real estate business.  He and his wife Lisa, along with their four children, began attending Meadowbrook in 2009 and have been actively involved in several ministries since then.  One of the activities Greg enjoys with his family is Speech and Debate Club, which for him involves coaching high school students in apologetics and traveling around the Midwest for competition.  You would also find them hiking in this beautiful state and hanging out with international students who live in their home.

One of Greg’s hopes for Meadowbrook is that our church is faithful and embraces Jesus and his word in a post-Christian context.  As Meadowbrook grows into the future, Greg prays that we can be effective in making disciples who love and obey Jesus in comprehensive and evident ways.


John Anderson

John and his wife met while attending New Tribes Bible Institute in Waukesha, Wisconsin.  After which they have been serving with New Tribes mission (NTM) since 1982.  Their field of service has included The Republic of Panama for 19 years.  At present they serve in the Member Care Department of NTM.  They have four children and eleven grandchildren.  The Andersons have been attending Meadowbrook for seven years.

John’s hope for Meadowbrook is that people will see us as a church that has a heart to reach out to people in a way that will look and feel like Jesus.  May this be the area of our daily growth.


Rich Giles

While Rich was born and bred in Illinois, he is now happily a cheese-head by choice and has enjoyed attending Meadowbrook since graduation from Marquette University in 1990. He has spent more than 25 years working at Northwestern Mutual Life, where he is currently a manager in the Information Systems area. Rich married Connie in 1999 and has two great boys- Rich and Tim.

Rich has been engaged in a variety of areas of the church, and currently has fun in our NextGen Ministry. Rich co-leads our Middle School Sunday school with several teaching teams and has been engaged helping lead worship for many years at our annual Vacation Bible School. He became an elder in 2014, and is the liaison for the Technology Operations team.

Rich’s hope is that people would feel comfortable bringing their whole-self to church, where they can be refreshed with theologically grounded teaching and sincere connection with people who care.  He deeply desires that Meadowbrook would continue to be a congregation that reaches outside the four walls of the church, sharing God’s love for our community.


Scott Hoggatt

Scott currently works for WE Energies as the Manager of Operations Support & Regulatory Compliance.  He and his wife Judy have four children.   He is an avid biker, skier and tennis player.   Their family moved to the Milwaukee area in 1992 and started attending Meadowbrook shortly thereafter.

Scott has been serving as an adult discipleship leader through the communities and classes we offer on Sunday mornings.  His heart is to see adults and students passionately seek after Christ, deepening their faith and reaching out to others, encouraging them to do the same.  Scott previously served on the Meadowbrook Leadership Team from 1995-2005 and has returned to the team in 2011 as an Elder and liaison to the Finance Team.  


Dick Adam

Dick graduated from Trinity Seminary and has served as a pastor in central Wisconsin, sold and serviced fire protection equipment and has worked for the USPS for over 30 years.  He and his wife Karen  began to attend Meadowbrook in 2004.  They have three grown children and seven grandchildren.  They enjoy camping, hiking, skiing, and spending time with family.  One of Dick’s favorite hobbies is talking Karen off the ledge after the occasional Packer loss!

Dick has served in several areas of leadership at Meadowbrook, including the oversight of adult discipleship, preaching and Elder and Council president.  He also leads worship services and Bible studies through Brother Bob's Outreach within the state prison system.

Dick's hope is that when people come to Meadowbrook they sense the presence of God  - through a genuine, caring welcome and through solid Biblical preaching and teaching aimed at moving us ever closer to Him.  It is his desire to see us continue to grow in our outreach and ministry to our city in practical ways, and in the future to plant new churches in strategic areas of the city.
