Welcome to Faith Church’s website! I would be glad to talk with you further. Please get in touch using the contact page. Here’s a little bit about me and my family. My wife Michelle and I met at and graduated from Lancaster Bible College (where I got my Bachelor’s degree). After college we were church-planting missionaries in Kingston, Jamaica for one year. We have served Faith Church since October 2002, first as youth/associate pastor, and then senior pastor since July 2008. I graduated from Evangelical Theological Seminary with the Master of Divinity degree, and I am back there again, currently a ThD candidate. Michelle, and I are the proud parents of three sons, one daughter, and one daughter-in-law. If you catch me in a free moment, I'll probably be watching my kids play soccer, reading a book, listening to U2 or REM, running with my dog, enjoying a TV show or movie with Michelle or rooting for the Phillies or Washington Football Team (neither of which has been exciting lately)! Michelle and I desire to learn more about God's heart for the oppressed and how we Americans can live the Gospel. We are so excited that Faith Church is a church whose heart beats after God's heart, removing the chains of injustice, freeing the captives, preaching the good news, feeding the poor, discipling the believers, praying for the world.
Emerald Scaffe Ministry Coordinator
My family and I live in Leola, Pa and are proud to be a part of this local church community. As a blended family we have experienced first hand the love, grace, and joy that can come from a supportive body of believers. God has used Faith Church deeply (and sometimes daily) in our lives. I am proud to be able to serve together in ministry, in my role as Ministry Coordinator. God is doing awesome things in my life, and in yours.
Joel Leicy Youth Ministry Leader
Since 2002 I have been at Faith Church, establishing my faith in God all along the way. I grew up in a family of four boys with two loving parents that worked so hard for us! I accepted Christ as my savior in the fifth grade and can remember it to this day; God has blessed me abundantly! I married my wife Heather Martin in May 2016 after six years dating and love doing life with her! We bought my parents’ house in Bird-In-Hand and Heather moved in from a whopping 10 minutes away in Leola. We’re both homebodies and love spending time with our friends and family. After high school I enlisted in the Army National Guard and did six years training in a Reconnaissance Platoon which ended in January 2016. In that time graduated from Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology majoring in Carpentry and worked commercial construction for two years in residential trim work. In 2020 I opened a custom woodshop at home. I love the outdoors; hunting/fishing, hiking, any and all sports, evening fires with friends and family and just messing around with projects at home. I chose to take on the Youth Ministry Leader position knowing how much it impacted my younger life and feeling a strong urge from the Lord to serve in this way. I aim to be a light for his Kingdom and live my life by example so that the youth will see how beneficial following God is!
Chris Lehigh Worship Leader
I am from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, just short of an hour from Lancaster. I am currently studying at Lancaster Bible College where I am majoring in Biblical Studies and Worship Arts. I love to worship, play piano, guitar, and a few other instruments that I am learning. I also enjoy exercise, reading, and sports. I am excited to be at Faith Church where I can help others grow in Christ while at the same time I grow in Christ through an intentional community of believers.
