Meet Some Of Our ABCOPAD Pastors
FBC, Tarentum has a new interim Pastor! Meet Pastor Chester Howell. Pastor Chet is no stranger to the church, as he lives in the area and provided pulpit supply over the years, following retirement after a career with Xerox. Frank Frischkorn was in town, and it was great time of meeting and conversation. They had the chance to talk about the ministry in Tarentum, as the congregation launches their search for a new Senior Pastor.
Frank Frischkorn had the opportunity to connect with a Pastor Scott Jones (Franklin Union, Worthington) as he traveled across the state. It was a great time together for catching up on his ministry at Franklin Union. Pastor Scott is one of our Mentor Pastors for an LLC group as well as a Search Committee Adjunct staff member.
Mark Mahserjian-Smith and Pastor David Barrett (United Baptist Church, Taylor) were sharing lunch at a local Wendy's ... when a dear friend, Pastor Ginger Daubenhauser, showed up. She had just finished her worship service at a United Methodist Church where Pastor Ginger is serving. You might remember Pastor Ginger served at the Trinity Baptist Church in Scranton a few years ago. It was fun connecting with these great friends.
Down in Delaware... Frank Frischkorn was in Newark for a meeting at Calvary Baptist Church and had the chance to share some dinner with Pastor Corey Fields... So great to have the chance to catch up and hear the good things the LORD is doing!
Frank Frischkorn worshiped with the church family at the Baptist Church of West Chester. Pastor David Braneky did a great job helping to lead the congregation through this year’s Lenten series inspired by Rowan Williams’ book, Meeting God in Mark.
Meet Pastor Tim Kutch, lead pastor at the First Baptist Church of Ford City. Pastor Tim started at the church as the Student Ministries Pastor while his Uncle, Rev Robert French, served as the church’s interim minister. Later the congregation called Pastor Tim to become their lead minister. Pastor Tim’s under-grad work was in education, but he also had an interest in magic and is an accomplished illusionist.
Meet Pastor George Herrick. A familiar face in ABCOPAD, he's been serving as interim at the Pine City Baptist Church in New York near Elmira. While at Calvary Baptist Church in Williamsport, Mark Mahserjian-Smith met up with George and his wife Gladys. It was good to connect with all these dear friends and partners in ministry.
