Senior Pastor: Rev. John T. (Jack) McCormick

Rev. John T. (Jack) McCormick has been our Senior Pastor since July of 1985. Under his leadership we have experienced great growth.

Pastor Jack is a graduate of Mid-America Nazarene University and Nazarene Theological Seminary. Jack and his wife LeAnn lead our church family with great vision and spiritual insight. Jack and LeAnn have three children: Rachel, Seth, and Abigail.
