DAVID & NANCY DINNING
David & Nancy Dinning were one of the founding couples of the Laurel Highlands Full Gospel Church in the early 1970's. Birthed out of the Charismatic Renewal in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the ministry developed out of the desire to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in worship & teaching. In 1978, the location moved from a small church to the current location at Indian Lake, where they converted the old, Indian Lake Gun Club into a vibrant ministry. The Mountaintop has gone through many seasons of ministry, serving the Laurel Highlands of Western PA. One of the prophetic visions for the ministry was the creation of a mountaintop retreat center, where special speakers can come and teach and where pastors and leaders can come and take a break from ministry to get refreshed. David & Nancy desire for the move of God in Western PA and beyond. They want to raise up and train leaders, and have the hearts to facilitate this move through retreats and schools and at the conference center.
Cristina Foor joined The Mountaintop team in 2015 and oversees the pastoral care of the people who attend weekly services. She has been ordained for over 20 years. In ministry, she has a strong emphasis on revival. As a student of revival, Cristina longs to see a move of God for this generation. She is hungry, passionate and determined to know God in a greater depth and share that knowledge with others. Cristina will go wherever there are people hungry for a move of God. For six months, Cristina lived in Israel with Ruth Heflin, soaking in the Glory that was on Ruth's life. Cristina walks in a strong prophetic anointing and loves to encourage people to know God more intimately and to fulfill their destiny in the Kingdom of God. She is a strong believer in the supernatural realms of God including miracles and healing, revelation and manifestations of the glory of God. She longs to see the sons of God manifest and be revealed in the earth. She is a messenger of things to come with an emphasis on the Word of God and living a holy life. Cristina has ministered in more than a dozen nations, in churches and conferences.

Lauren Klinger has grown up in the ministry at Indian Lake and serves as the Worship Director and a worship leader.

Isaiah 43:21 tells us that we were created to praise God and I consider it an honor and a great privilege to do so, When we worship Him in Spirit and in truth, He will respond to that and pour our His Spirit and His glory. As a worship leader, I want to help usher in that manifest presence of God. It's where hearts are changed and lives are transformed forever!" Lauren is on the board as an Elder.
