OUR PASTORAL TEAM
The pastoral leadership of our assembly rests in the hands of a team of men who have qualified for this work by their proven character, gifts, and experience. The primary focus of their work is prayer and the ministry of the Word (Acts 6:3-4). They are responsible for overseeing the assembly, which includes providing the people with teaching, pastoral care, guidance, modeling, protection, and prayer for the sick (Acts 20:28; 1 Peter 5:1-3; James 5:14). The members of this team work together to provide high-quality pastoral leadership to all the people of this assembly.
The following men are currently serving on our pastoral team:
Steve Epler (717-713-9104) David Huston (717-580-0189) Mike Kemper (717-343-5975)

In the Bible, the men who served in this capacity are referred to as elders, bishops, overseers, and/or pastor-teachers (see Acts 14:23; Ephesians 4:11; Titus 1:5-7; Philippians 1:1). We should not think of these as different ministries, since in the Bible, all four of these terms refer to the same ministry of leadership in a local assembly. We call our leaders pastors, but we do not use this word as a title. Since our church is a spiritual family, we think of ourselves as brothers and sisters in the Lord. For this reason we call our leaders Bro. Steve, Bro. Dave, and Bro. Mike. These men are available to you for prayer, to answer questions, or to provide spiritual guidance. Please feel free to speak to any one of them.
Three teams assist our pastors in their ministry to the people of our church. The Ministry Team serves the church in a variety of spiritual and practical matters. The Women's Ministry Team focuses on the needs of the women of the church. The Projects Team focuses on keeping our equipment and facilities clean and well maintained.
