Our Pastor

 

Rev. MarIMG_8902tin Bausman (Pastor Marty) came to serve this church on Sunday, October 30, 2011. He loves to spend time with people in informal settings and participate in their daily lives. He finds it exciting and rewarding to preach from God’s Word; learning what it says and how the Holy Spirit applies it to our lives today. His greatest passion in ministry is reaching out to young people, especially JrHi & SrHi students. They are the cutting edge of the church in our world today and tomorrow.

Pastor Marty and Julie have been married since August ’77, and have two grown children; Jonathan (and Judy) Bausman of Auburn, ME and Janelle Bausman of Plattsburgh, NY. They also have two grandchildren in Maine.

He earned his B.A. in Religion from Eastern Nazarene College in Wollaston, MA and his M.Div. in Pastoral Ministry from Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City, MO. In over 30 years of ministry, Pastor Marty and Julie previously served pastorates in Kalamazoo, MI; Big Rapids, MI; and Wilmington, NY. They reside in Waynesburg, PA, where Dr. Julie Bausman teaches at Waynesburg University.

His hobbies include: bicycling, basketball, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, amateur radio (KC2BRO), and restoring and driving his ’66 VW Bug.

His life verse is “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
