Church LEadership / Staff



DOUGLAS WEYGAND

LEAD PASTOR


Pastor Doug  and his wife Nancy have 6 children and 10 grandchildren. Each year on August 3rd Pastor Doug and Nancy celebrate their anniversary which began in 1974. Pastor Doug is now in his 4th year of ministry and came to Grace Community Church from Annville, PA. Oddly enough, Pastor Doug has one of the strangest hobbies you could ever think of, he likes to mow lawns. He does have other interests like reading, being with his children and grandchildren, and of course rooting for the New York Giants, “but working outside gives me a chance to unwind and think about ministry when I am all alone.”


Pastor Doug states, “Being here at GCC has been one of the most fulfilling times of ministry. The way in which God brought our family here is a wonder in itself. I am honored to pastor such a great group of people in which we all are being honed each day by the grace of God in which we are saved. For me, there is no other place I desire to be because it is here that feels like home.”


Isaac Ketner

PASTOR-TEACHER, STUDENT & CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES


Isaac Ketner joined the staff as the Director of Youth Ministries in 2008. In 2009, he graduated from Lancaster Bible College with a Bachelor’s degree in Student Ministry and stepped into the role of Pastor of Student & Children’s Ministries. In 2015 he then graduated from Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity in Professional Ministries.

His desire is to introduce students to the living Savior and to help them grow in their love for Jesus. He loves serving students and their families and is deeply grateful for the wonderful privilege to serve at GCC.

Isaac also deeply loves his family. He has been married to his wife, Abigail, since 2009 and they have two children, Ian and Isabelle. Isaac loves to play ultimate Frisbee in the summer, hunt in the fall, and cut firewood in the spring. His life mission statement is to “Cultivate Servants with God’s Heartbeat,” and his life verse is Ezra 7:10, “For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.”

DIANNE RICHARD

CHURCH SECRETARY


Dianne has been the Secretary of GCC since March of 2011. She views her position as an exciting, challenging, every changing ministry but so fulfilling and as a wonderful blessing from God. She feels blessed to see God utilize the gifts and talents given to her as she ministers here at Grace Community Church. After working in the secular workforce for many years, she recognizes that nothing can possibly compare to a full time ministry position where God’s Grace is evident on a daily basis.


She grew up in this area, moved away, only to return to such a special place in her heart 14 years later. Kayaking, walking, craft projects, cooking, and baking are just a few activities that she enjoys. Much of her time is devoted to church functions, special friends, and their family functions in which keep her calendar quite busy.
