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
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 Columbia, 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 his 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 Dalhousie 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 youth pastor at Warsaw Wesleyan 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 children and 6 grandchildren.

Eph. 3:17-19 (NIV)
