Pastor Mike and Jennifer both grew up in Susquehanna County Pennsylvania. Mike was raised on a dairy farm where he developed a love for the outdoors, family life and cows! Jennifer’s dad helped milk for Mike’s family on the farm –needless to say Mike and Jennifer were destined for marriage and have been happily married for 23 years with 4 children.
Through a series of separate events, God brought both of them to understand His desire for them to be involved in local church ministry. God has used them in two churches over the last 17 years as Sr. Pastor – one church in North Central PA for 11 years and one in Apalachin NY for 6 years. They have experienced growth in their ministries where God has used their heart for reaching the lost in the community and building strong relationships in the church.
Mike is a graduate of Davis College and has also taken courses at Baptist Bible Seminary toward his master’s degree. Jennifer loves kids and helps as a teacher’s assistant in the Owego School District.
