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 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.

This class is taught by Cathie Ruth and will cover the basics of Faith.

This class is co-taught by Bryce Fisher and David Scheirer. Our 7th grade students will enjoy a journey through the Old Testament Prophets.

8th Grade

Our 8th grade students will be journeying through the life of Christ.  


Our leaders play an integral part in making our youth ministry happen. All of our leaders receive training for interacting with our youth. They are also required to have completed the state police criminal check and a background check.
