Leadership at Grace point

Leadership is a team effort consisting of our Pastoral Staff, an Elder Team and a Deacon Team.  The Elders at GPC partner with the staff to guide the mission and vision of the church. The Deacons support the Elders and staff by caring for and guiding the physical needs and facility.  We are all accountable to God and one another with our congregation providing guidance and support on the larger issues of ministry.

  • Tim Rogers, Lead Pastor

    I have been married to my beautiful wife Jen since 1998 and have three great kids - Megan, Liana & Luke.  Undoubtedly the greatest challenge of my life is passing on the faith to my kids in creative, fun and meaningful ways.

    I am driven by a desire to see followers of Jesus be the church in the place God has placed them, not just come to a church near where God has placed them. I love to encourage people to step into their fears and see their faith grow and see God work. I love to hear the stories of how God has been working in so many different people's lives.


    I am an avid biker and also enjoy playing guitar, reading, all types of family vacations, and following most Philly sports teams. 

    I graduated from Lancaster Bible College and Dallas Theological Seminary and have been at Grace Point since 2003.

  • Kevin Hackett, Pastor of Student Ministries

    I have been married to my gorgeous wife Catherine since 2007. I am captivated by her warmth, energy and love every day. We have four amazing children: Claire (2008), Ethan (2010), Amelia (2012), and Lincoln (2014). Each of their unique personalities provides variety and challenge to our lives. It is my prayer that each of of my children will grow up to make the most of their gifts and talents for the sake of God's Kingdom in the name of Jesus Christ and by the power of His Holy Spirit.


    My passion and desire is to point people to Jesus Christ and walk side-by-side with them as they live out their faith journey. I am driven by a vision to see the church come together and function as a unified body of believers with singleness of mind and purpose. With joined head, heart and hands, I see the church impacting the world in eternally significant ways. I am not typically outspoken but love engaging people in deep meaningful one-on-one conversations.


    I have competed in several triathlons and one Ironman event (Lake Placid 2007). I have recently joined up with the Welsh Mountain Wheelmen and have enjoyed the road racing experience with them. I love sports and outdoor adventure and feel most connected to God when engaged with His glorious creation.


    I graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Fine Art and Columbia International University with a Masters of Divinity in Ministry Leadership. I am thrilled to be a part of what God is doing at Grace Point Church and look forward to this upcoming season of ministry.

  • Greg Petersheim, executive pastor of discipleship

    I’m excited to see growth happen and I love helping people eliminate barriers that are hindering that growth.  I enjoy working in a team environment, as we can encourage each other towards greater things.


    I’ve worked in the high end cabinet industry for 28 years before coming on staff at GPC.  I’m excited to use my abilities and passions to help us as a church continue to step into new areas.


    Losing my precious wife of 26 years to breast cancer in 2019, my family is now two awesome daughters, Corinne and Lauren, and a little diva dog named Molly.  I enjoy anything to do with worship music, playing guitar, and riding motorcycle.

  • Katie Beiler, Kids ministry director

    After marrying my husband Austin in 2015, we began to search for a church of our own and landed on GPC - which is the church Austin grew up attending. I've deeply enjoyed being part of this church family and experiencing their generosity, kindness, and fun-loving nature.

     

    My background is in education, which I have a degree in from from Messiah College. After teaching third grade for several years, and then serving as the Birth to 5 Literacy Liaison for Pequea Valley for a few more years, I began working part time as GPC's Kids Ministry Director. This role allows me to use my teaching background, love for kids, and desire to know Jesus better as I help lead our volunteers to teach our youngest members about Jesus! Being the Kids Ministry Director is the perfect job that allows me to stay home most days to raise our son, Lee, who was born at the end of 2019. 

     

    Some fun facts about me:

    -Austin and I designed and built our home in 2018

    -I've done a rim-to-rim hike in the Grand Canyon

    -I love to travel, and hope to see all 50 states in my lifetime

    -Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks


  • Jen Rogers, Pastoral ministries assistant

    One of the greatest joys in my life is being married to Tim and together raising our three children, Megan, Liana & Luke. There are some hectic days with three active children and juggling schedules, but I wouldn't trade a minute of it. Doing life together is definitely an adventure!


    I love being part of a church that wants to engage with our community as we grow together. I value working as part of a team and sharing honestly about life with those around me. Another highlight for me is being part of the GPC Worship Team.


    In my free time I enjoy running, reading, cheering for my kids' teams and spending time with my family.

  • jan Clemmer, office ministry assistant

    I started as the Office Ministry Assistant in 2019 but have attended GPC for most of my life.  I love being part of a church family that seeks ways to be involved in our community and serve those around us!  I enjoy serving on the Worship Team as well as working with this amazing team!  


    I have been married to my wonderful husband, Marty, since 1998 and we have been blessed with 3 children, Alyssa, Devon and Adalie. My absolute favorite place to be is spending time with my family, playing games and traveling to visit new places. We are in the middle of crazy schedules with 2 in college and one in high school but we love this stage of life and I am grateful for the blessing of doing life with them each day! I also enjoy playing piano, attending our kids' tennis matches and events and hosting their friends in our home.




  • Tanya Mast, Media Director

    I have been on the greatest adventure of marriage with my husband Derek since 2014 and we've been blessed with three children, Rainee, Emerson, and Atlas. In my free time I love to lindyhop with Derek, read, and drink copious amounts of coffee, but the majority of my day is currently spent in fictitious tea parties and playing peek-a-boo and I LOVE it.


    I've been creating graphic content for GPC and managing our socials since 2016. It's such a joy to work with the fantastic staff and I deeply enjoy getting to experience sermons and stories of grace deeper while working behind the scenes.
