Pastor Joe McKnight

Our pastor's testimony is that he is sinner, but a sinner saved by grace! Joseph McKnight was born into a pastor's home. At the age of six, he was first convicted of his own sin and need for salvation by the atoning blood of Jesus Christ. Joe knew from a very early age that God was calling him to foreign mission work. Following graduation from Bob Jones University in 1986 with a degree in Church Ministries, Joe was ordained and, along with his wife Penny (Lengel) served as a missionary in Jamaica from 1988-2004.
While serving in Jamaica, Pastor McKnight began studying the Doctrines of Grace as presented in the Word of God. These precious truths have transformed both his life and his ministry. Today, he joyfully proclaims "Salvation by Grace Alone!" The ministry in Jamaica continues today under the leadership of Jamaican Pastors.

Since returning to the USA, Pastor McKnight has served two congregations in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Our pastor also serves on the Executive Committee of the American Council of Christian Churches.
