Favorite Bible Verse

"I have voluntarily become a servant to any and all in order to reach a wide range of people...I didn't take on their way of life.  I kept my bearings in Christ-but I entered their world and tried to experience things from their point of view...I did all this because of the Message.  I didn't just want to talk about it; I wanted to be in on it!"
1 Cor 9:19b-23
(The Message)

Rev. Michael Saunders, Senior Pastor

Born in Eastern Canada into a christian home, Pastor Mike began a career in policing in 1981 and served in Vancouver, British Colombia, Fredericton, New Brunswick and Sussex, New Brunswick (all Canadian Cities) as a police officer until 1994, (14 years).

The Lord called Pastor Mike into ministry through working as a lay youth pastor at his home church in Fredericton N.B. As a result of this call and deep desire to serve the Lord and reach the lost, Pastor Mike resigned from policing in 1994 and entered Bethany Bible College to pursue a degree in Pastoral Ministries.  So began the long road to ordination.  Pastor Mike continued his educational pursuits taking courses at Indiana Wesleyan University, Houghton College and Dalehousie University.  Pastor Mike was ordained in the Wesleyan Church at the Penn-Jersey District Conference in July, 2000.

Pastor Mike's first ministry position was as a youth pastor at Warsaw Wesleayn Church, (Warsaw, Indiana).  He served there for 3 years.  Pastor Mike also pastored three other Wesleyan churches, (Plattsburg, NY, Stroudsburg, PA and Willow Grove, PA) before resigning from ministry in 2006, to return home to be with his ailing father in Canada.  There Mike resumed his career  as a police officer in 2006, working as a Major Crime Detective.  After two years in policing, Pastor Mike felt God calling him to return to ministry and went to pastor a church in Bridgeton, NJ.  In 2010, God led Pastor Mike back to CrossWay Community Church in Willow Grove, PA where he is currently serving as Senior Pastor.

Pastor Mike and his wife Diane, have 3 chidren and 6 grandchildren.

Pastor Peter, Assistant Pastor

Pastor Peter was born in New Jersey and brought up in a christian home and accepted Christ into his life when he was in third grade.  With his father as a pastor,  Pastor Peter was always involved in church whether it was playing on the youth worship team, or helping out with the younger kids.

During his senior year of high school, Pastor Peter felt a call to full time ministry.  Following high school in 2010, he attended Kingswood University (formerly known as Bethany Bible College).  During Pastor Peter's time there, God began to develop a heart for children and youth.  Pastor Peter had the opportunity to be a resident assistand for two years, allowing him to be a spiritual mentor to the fellow students on campus.  For his senior internship, he spent 6 months in Washington, Michigan where he worked with the youth ministry.  Pastor Peter graduated Kingswood University in 2014 with a B.A. in Religion.

Pastor Peter accepted his first ministry position right after graduation where he spent 2 years in a residency program at Bethany Wesleyan Church in Cherryville, PA . Pastor Peter worked primarily with teens, but also assisted with the children and young adult ministry.  After his residency, God led Pastor Peter to Willow Grove, where he is currently serving as Children and Youth Pastor.
