Meet Pastor Jaime

Pastor Jaime is the newest member of our staff. While attending Lancaster Bible College Jaime interned for the youth ministry for a number of years. His love for Jesus and the students was infectious and his gifting for ministry made it easy to bring him on as our Middle School Pastor. Jaime is married to his wife Molly. He and Molly are parents to Mason, age eight. 

Jaime grew up in a family with a long history of ministry. He loves music and is a gifted musician and singer. Jaime is passionate about Jesus and is enjoying getting to inspire the next generation to follow Him.

Sunday Morning Truth

"The Thread: Discovering The Thread of the Gospel Through The Big-Picture Story of the Bible"

This year we are embarking on a journey of discovering God’s Story through the pages of the Bible. They will discover how the Gospel (“The Good News”) of Jesus is the common theme or “The Thread” found in each book of the Bible! God’s story transforms lives, and we are excited for our teens to know and be transformed by God’s story this year!
