The following might help you get to know Pastor John and Mary.
Pastor John Trerice
My philosophy of ministry is quite different than many today and it is simple.
"Preach the Word and love the people." My father-in-law told me those words as I was leaving seminary. He had been a successful Pastor then for 3 decades. Over the years by God's grace I have tried to live those words.
It is my goal to do the following:
1. Never compromise in any way the clear teachings of the Word of God.
2. Always preach the Word with love, compassion, and understanding.
3. Always preach clearly to help people to see the truth of God for themselves.
4. Always in ministry try to show God's kindness and grace, even in difficult situations.
5. Always try to be contemporary in approach, but always following #1 above.
6. Share the gospel of Christ locally and internationally.
7. Expect that God will do mighty things in and through our lives as He has promised.
