Pastor Randy Received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior back in 1979, at the age of 27 and immediately sensed God's call upon his life to go into the ministry. The very first church that he attended as a brand new believer was, none other than East Side Bible Church. At that time, Pastor William Lehr was the Pastor here at East Side Bible Church. He mentored Randy for 3 years before Randy entered Lancaster Bible College for his formal ministry training.

Pastor Randy has a vision for the growth and vitality of our little country church and he would love for you to consider finding a place here to grow with us. Please contact him at 717-252-1911 or come to one of our services to meet Pastor Randy.
