Originally from Canada, the Clarks moved to Penn Yan with the vision of seeing a Spirit-filled church flourish in the area. It is their continued heart to see revival and hope brought to each home. They love traveling abroad, taking in the view of Keuka Lake from their deck, and spending time with their grandchildren.
When the Millers came for our Discipleship Program, they had no idea God would call them to this area or into pastoral ministry. Years later, they have continued to walk in obedience and serve this region. Nelson and Amy are passionate about seeing families restored and hope brought to every situation. They are enjoying this season of raising their family of four.

As a young family, the Riehls envisioned a life-giving church to raise their family in. Over the years, this dream has been fulfilled and the Riehls continue to serve this area in both ministry and business. They love creating a safe atmosphere where people are loved and cared for. They also love drinking good coffee and hanging out with their adult children.

Born and raised in the Finger Lakes, Jesse is rooted in this region and wants to see young people living their lives to the fullest. He is a “jack of all trades”, teaching on Sundays and hanging out with the youth on Wednesdays. Jesse is a taxidermist and loves hunting. He can be found snowboarding in the winter and hiking in the summer.
What We Believe
We want to always be a church that produces life, not only for us, but also for our region and the world. Here are a few things that are important to our community.
We are passionate about worshipping the Lord, as a lifestyle, and we never want to miss an opportunity to bless Him.
We believe prayer changes things and that’s one reason we start most of our meetings with extended prayer time.
We love God’s Word and enjoy in-depth teaching each Sunday. We also enjoy studying together at Care Groups.
We look forward to each opportunity to fellowship together, whether that be after the Sunday meeting or throughout the week.
We love being a generous people and it shows in the way we give to each other and those in need.
We believe that the power of the Holy Spirit is available today, and we want to experience more of His power in our lives.
We work at resting, meaning we treat Sunday differently than any other day of the week.
We believe life happens in community and the best example of this is our weekly Care Groups. This is where fellowship and personal ministry collide.
We all have passports and are ready to go anywhere to serve God and serve people.
We are grateful for all God has done, but are hungry for more than what we have now. We are expecting revival for this area.
