Pastoral Staff


Pastor Mitch Reed & Wife Cheryl



Mitch Reed has been the pastor of EGCC since 2020.  He and his wife Cheryl moved to the area from southeastern Ohio with their three children right around the time when Covid hit.  Two of the kids are now at Burnt Hills High School, with one at a SUNY college.  Cheryl is a math teacher in one of the local Middle Schools.
Pastor Mitch is an ordained pastor in the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (the 4 C’s).  He completed his Masters of Divinity at Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland Ohio.  Mitch spent his early years of ministry working for Young Life, an outreach ministry to teenagers.  His first assignment was to start Young Life in a new area, the small town of Cambridge Ohio.  Since then, Mitch has served in churches in different parts of Ohio and was originally ordained in 2006.  The move to upstate NY was his first opportunity to live and do ministry in a different state.  Cheryl has also worked in ministry, and started an outreach to Teenage Moms in Zanesville Ohio through YoungLives (an offshoot of Young Life).  Since coming to Glenville, she has returned to her roots as a math teacher.  Mitch & Cheryl and the family are currently working on the Fire Tower Challenge to do 23 hikes in the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains.

Director of Worship Ministries

Chantelle began serving as Interim Director of Worship Ministries in September 2021 and was officially named Director in May 2022. She has been attending East Glenville Community Church since 2011. Chantelle accompanied the choir in 2012 and was hired as choir accompanist in 2013. Along with playing with the choir, she joined the worship team playing keys and piano and singing vocals. Playing piano, accompanying choirs and singing has been a lifelong joy for Chantelle as she started as a young child in children’s choirs. She began to play for church services at 11 years old in her small hometown church in northern NY and continued in various churches throughout the country, to include Georgia and Colorado.
Chantelle’s goal each week is to lead a singing church in songs rich in the truths of God’s Word and the Gospel; that each person be filled with scripture and truth to equip them for the week ahead; that the character and goodness of God is praised and glorified.
Chantelle also works part-time as a pediatric physical therapist and earned her doctorate in physical therapy in 2006. Chantelle lives locally with her two teenage sons.
