  • Pastor Bryan Sanders


    CONTAcT


    We hear all the time that Pastor Bryan is not your stereotypical pastor. . . and we think that is one of his best qualities!  Get to know him, and you will quickly see what we mean. . . 


    He has pastored in one way, shape, or form for over 20 years, serving in roles such as youth, associate, and lead pastor.  These roles have prepared Bryan to connect with a wide range of responsibilities and age groups with a communication style that can best be described as "passion with content".


    Pastor Sanders has received his training from several institutions - earning a Bachelor of Arts from Pillsbury Baptist Bible College, a Master of Divinity from Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary, and courses completed toward his Doctorate of Ministry from West Minister Theological Seminary.


    Bryan is married to Sheryl, the love of his life, and together they have three amazing daughters:  Tori, Liv, and Ava.  He is a lifelong resident of Pennsylvania and cheers for all the Philly teams!  He loves a round of golf, hunting, and fishing and is, in general, an outdoor enthusiast.


    Bryan seeks to lead a generation of people to honor God's voice and respond in extreme faith obedience.

    Pastor Brian Kretschman, our pastor of Worship, Assimilation and Mission, arrived in February 2018 from Thrive Ministries in Morrison, Illinois.  He is joined by his wife Caite and their three children, Brenna, Alyssa and Tanner.  Pastor Brian has an understanding of how the rejuvenating impact of music inspires worshippers to desire God and live lives worthy of His glory.  He is a talented worship leader and has spent his years in ministry leading worship and working with youth and young adults.  He has a heart to see the church pursue ministry that brings people in line with God's plan for the church! Pastor Brian received a Bachelor of Arts in Church Leadership from The Baptist College of Florida.


    Brian says, "I am excited to join a church that is continuing its efforts to connect with and minister to the community.  I look, forward to seeing people come together and magnify the greatness of God. I hope to use my ministry to help people connect to something great within the church and to be a part of a powerful movement of God working in the greater Harrisburg area."
