Ron Swartz, our lead pastor, has been with us since the summer of 2006, when the family moved here from the Upper Peninsula. He and Lucretia have been married for 30+ years and are well able to understand the blessings and challenges that come with marriage and family. They love their five adult children and nine grandchildren.
Even more importantly, Pastor Ron loves the Lord. He walks with God, listens to the Holy Spirit, and follows Christ. He speaks truth to us, validated by the Scriptures. An excellent storyteller, his sermons are full of real life experiences. He is a man of thought and of prayer. He also enjoys this good earth, a keeper of bees in the UP and now a U-Pick berry farmer.
