Gina has been a member of the congregation since 1989 and has held a variety of leadership roles. Pastoral ministry was an unexpected turn from her training as an educator but she joyfully welcomed the call to serve. She finds hope in the reality that Jesus understands what it’s like to be human and she believes that the church can embody God’s kingdom.
Gina loves to sit in a sunny spot and needs regular doses of outdoor time. She is married to Dan and they have five children and one cat.
The Leadership Team is composed of 4 lay members and the pastoral staff. Together we work at vision-setting, oversight of congregational life and ministries, administration and budgeting. Our congregational treasurer is also a regular member of the Team. Members are nominated, called and affirmed by the congregation.
Currently serving on the team are: CHAIR-Rebecca Fennimore, TREASURER-Beth Martin, MEMBERS-AT-LARGE Darrell Mast, Matt Sauder, Jane Yoder, PASTORS Ron Adams, Gina Burkhart
Pastoral Development Team
The PDT is a group of three to four church members who are nominated, called and affirmed by the congregation. Their role is to offer support and counsel to the pastoral staff, to mediate any issues that arise between pastors and congregants, and to perform regular evaluations of both pastors and regular assessments of congregational well-being.
Currently serving on the team are: CHAIR-Mary Grace Shenk, Nelson Kling, Ann Martin, Richard Miller
Pastoral Care Team
The Pastoral Care team consists of lay leaders and the pastors. They provide support for visitation ministry and crisis care as well as accountability for the distribution of funds from the congregational sharing account.
