Rev. Josh McKamy became a Christian during his freshman year of college at Bucknell university through the ministries of Disciplemakers (a college ministry) and Redeemer OPC, Danville. During his time at Bucknell, Josh grew in his love for sharing the good news of Jesus with others, and through studying the Bible came to a conviction that the Reformed faith is most faithful to the Bible. This conviction was confirmed during his 4 years studying theology at Westminster Theological Seminary near Philadelphia prior to his ordination. Having become a Christian largely through the ministry of a church plant, new churches are something which have always been on his heart, so he was excited about the opportunity to serve here in Chambersburg!
Josh is a graduate of Bucknell University with a B.A. in Classics and of Westminster Theological Seminary with an M.Div in Pastoral Studies. He and his wife, Kristen, were married in 2009 and have three children.
Rev. John Mallin (also a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary near Philadelphia) is an ordained minister in the OPC and presently works as a Biblical Counselor.
