welcome Jeff Pilger

Faith Church is excited to welcome Jeff Pilger to our staff as our new full-time youth ministry director. Jeff has over 15 years of experience in ministry having served as a youth pastor, a campus minister, and a teaching assistant working with youth and their families.


Jeff, his wife Asia, and their three children, Allison, Liam, and Lauren, have been living in Rochester, NY, and are excited about moving to Happy Valley and joining the ministry of Faith Church.  


Be assured: Pastor David is not going anywhere! We celebrate the twelve years of faithful and innovative service David has given to youth and their families, and we look forward to all the ways David will lead us in new areas of outreach.


Beyond discipleship, worship leading, and preaching, David will continue to develop and oversee our church online outreach, as well as leading us in exploring ways we can take the vision, mission, and ministry of Faith Church into new communities.


This is an exciting time in the life of Faith Church! Please pray for all the church leaders, staff, and everyone involved in ministry as we continue move forward toward where God is calling us as a church. As you pray, ask God how He might be calling you to ministry and mission to help others know Jesus and become more like Him.
