In the beginning…
In 2011 God began to stir in the hearts of a few people called to serve our community. Initially these individuals were not closely connected, but the vision that was growing in them was very connected. They saw an area of South Jersey they loved as a place that needed a new expression of God’s love for his people. From that small spark a faithful core fanned the flame to show love to our neighbors; it marked the beginning of JLC!
Pastor Randy loves the Lord and loves people. His responsibilities are to cast God’s vision for the church and to equip the people for service. He works closely with the other leaders of JLC in following God’s direction and purpose for the church. His wife Judy is not only his partner in life, but also in ministry. They both look forward to getting to know you.
Mark has a strong desire to continue building the Kingdom of God through service to the local church. His strengths include Biblical, expository preaching and teaching, shepherding, and encouragement. He does everything with a high level of enthusiasm, including loving on his community. He is a disciple making disciple who is gifted in spiritual formation.
