PASTORAL STAFF


Rick grew up in New England but has served in various roles in GA, NC, and PA as Pastor of Students and Development as well as roles in a mental health facility and church planting. Rick and his wife Becky are deeply committed to the gospel and passionate for the Holy Spirits' transformation in the next generation.

 

Rick holds a B.S. in Pastoral Ministry from Toccoa Falls College, a M.A. in Organizational Leadership from Crown College and is currently working toward a P.h.D from Captial Seminary and Graduate school.  

 

Rick and Becky have been married since 1999 and have two sons in college (Jake and Josiah) and a daughter who is in high school (Hope). They enjoy spending time outside at the beach, on a trail, or by the water whenever possible. 

Kyle was born in York, PA but spent most of his childhood in Maine where his dad continues to serve as a pastor. After graduation from college in 2014, Kyle married his wife Monica, and in 2016 they welcomed a son into their family. Although his father and grandfather have served as pastors for many years, Kyle never expected that he would also serve as a pastor. In 2015, Kyle felt called by God to pursue a career as a military chaplain. This call led Kyle and Monica to seminary and into pastoral ministry in preparation for ministry in the military. Kyle and Monica both enjoy building relationships with college students, young adults, and young families and especially enjoy hosting people in their home. They share a passion for growing deeper in their faith and love for God and helping others to do the same. Kyle, Monica, and Jack enjoy living an active lifestyle and are thrilled to be living closer to family and friends in Lancaster County. 

Kyle graduated from Lancaster Bible College in 2014 with a B.S. in Intercultural Studies and Biblical Studies. In 2019, Kyle graduated with an M.Div. from the seminary at Columbia International University. While in seminary, Kyle joined the Navy Reserve as a Chaplain Candidate which allows him to begin his military training while also gaining valuable pastoral ministry experience. He anticipates transitioning to life and ministry as an active duty Navy Chaplain after several years of pastoral ministry.
