Pastoral Staff

 

Interim Senior Pastor Brad Bradford

 

 

Assistant Pastor Phil Sears

 
 
I came to know Jesus as a personal savior on July 24, 1965. At the end of October 1965, I received a call from the Lord to become His minister. I graduated from Clarks Summit University in 1992 with BABS and MMIN degrees with emphasis on original languages and Biblical Interpretation.
 
I was an interim pastor at Borden Baptist Church, Borden, NY during the summer of 1974. In September 1974, I was called to pastor Quackenbush Hill Community Church outside Corning, NY. In January 1977, I was called to pastor The Christian Church of Charleston in Montgomery County, NY and served there until May of 1994.
 
In September of 1994, my wife Bonita and I came to East Glenville and have been here ever since. I served as an elder and then church moderator and have been serving on staff since 2004. I enjoy reading, especially technical manuals and engineering magazines. I also enjoy gardening, leathercraft, and my antique Farmall tractor. I especially enjoy visiting with individuals to learn their stories and share my story with them. I love the Lord Jesus and studying His word. Praise the Lord!

Staff

Director of Worship Ministries

 

Sandie serves in the areas of music and worship and oversees all the worship ministries. She counts it a great joy and privilege to serve with people who love music and have hearts to serve the Lord. Sandie and her husband Bob have two adult children and six wonderful grandchildren.

Sandie is a graduate of Berkshire Christian College with a BA in Bible. She served in several churches in Massachusetts and Ohio before coming to East Glenville in 1999. In her down time, she enjoys spending time with her family as well as reading, cooking, traveling, and the outdoor activities that upstate New York offers.

Youth Director

 
 
My name is Nicholas (Nick) Feliciano. I am 23 and am very passionate about Jesus, teens, and baseball. I felt called to full time ministry after being very involved in ministry in my church and around the world during my senior year of High School. I then pursued my Youth Pastoral degree at Clarks Summit University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Bible Science.
 
After a year of waiting on the Lord, He led me from Delaware to East Glenville Community Church. I have seen God work through my passions in ministry and baseball and use those passions to serve Him in various ministries, countries, and churches. The Word of God is the most powerful tool to impact the heart and soul of people. I fully believe that and have experienced it.
 
My desire for every teen in the student ministry is to have a strong understand of who God is, to know that they are loved by the God of the universe, and to understand what God asks of us are not to hinder us from having a good life, but to have the most abundant life! This goes for students’ lives academically, physically, spiritually. God always has the best intentions for their lives.
 
The students play such a significant part of the Body of Christ and the sooner they recognize that the better! They have such a great opportunity to impact the Kingdom if they are willing, and my hope is to point them to the cross. God can take their passions and use them for His Kingdom. He can take each and every student’s life and turn their worlds upside down for Christ.
 
And when they experience that, my hope is they will want more. I want to be able to empower them in their schools, their communities, clubs, sports teams, and around the world to realize that they are free from their past sin and free to share that gift with the world!

Director of Children’s Ministries

 
 
Susan Perregaux has been Director of Children’s Ministries at EGCC since September 2004.  Her role at EGCC includes planning and coordinating programs such as SPARK, Harvest Party, family movie nights and Vacation Bible School, as well as serving as a liaison between the East Glenville Preschool and the church.
“The best part of my job is to provide children with opportunities to grow in their faith and to partner with parents in nourishing children as they come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior.”  One of her favorite Bible verses was learned as a child, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:6-7 Susan has lived in New York since July 2002.  She has a BA from Bowdoin College.  She and her husband, Adrian, live in Charlton and have four children: Emily, Jessica, Ethan and Jason.  She enjoys many outdoor activities, such as hiking, skiing and biking.
