Family: I am blessed to be married to Kelly, my wonderful wife of 14 years, and we have three amazing children: Ethan, Ava, and Aubryn.
Background: I grew up in Martinsburg, PA; a town with more cows than people. I attended Grace College and earned a BS in Youth Ministries and Biblical Studies. I currently live in Mount Wolf, PA.
Hobbies: Motorcycling. Chasing whitetails. But not at the same time.
Favorite food: You can never go wrong with a good Mexican meal that comes with free chips and salsa.
Family: I am wife to Ben Lepore and a mom to four growing kids: Elijah, Ezra, and twins Ezekiel and Elizabeth.
Background: I was born and raised in sunny, St. Petersburg, Florida. It was there right in my own hometown that I developed a love for working with children in my local church. I had the privilege of attending the Children's Ministry Institute in 2005 and then worked in full-time children's ministry until I got married and moved here to York! (The things you do for love!) I recently finished my degree through the Moody Bible Institute and have been on staff at YGBC since 2016. I love seeing children learn about the God who is crazy about them and helping parents become their child's spiritual hero!
Hobbies: I love shopping, drinking coffee, playing with Legos with my boys, and going to the beach.
Favorite Food: Dark Chocolate. Coffee. Queso.
Family: I am married to Dale and we have one daughter, Karis, who recently graduated with a BA in Industrial Design from Cedarville University. Dale and I were married in 1982, and we lived in Winona Lake, Indiana, and Telford, PA, for a few years before moving back to York where we currently reside. We also spent a year in the Central African Republic.
Background: I was born in Virginia but spent most of my life in the mid-West and Pennsylvania. My father was a Grace Brethren pastor and we spent time in Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. I graduated from Grace College (our Fellowship school) with a BA in Sociology. Most of my work experience has been with Christian ministries or churches, assisting in various administrative ways. For a short time I was also a legal secretary and a bank teller. I also do some substitute school teaching in the public schools. This is a great community connection.
Hobbies: reading, playing piano, hanging out with my husband, catching up on people's lives by Facebook ;-)
Favorite Food: Chicken dishes and cookies. I also love green beans and broccoli.
Family: Nate and I have been married since 2014 and God has graciously given us our son, Everett.
Background: I was born and raised in York and grew up here at YGBC. I went to Grace College and that is where I met my husband and earned a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. Currently, I am a stay at home mommy.
Hobbies: Spending time with my husband and son and our large extended family. Being outside and going on walks. Going to Target.
