Larry A. Griffin, Pastor
Bachelor of Science degree in Math Ed., Univ. of Maine at Presque Isle, Maine; Minors in Psychology, Sociology, and Philosophy. Mr. Griffin began preaching in Maine while in college (1972).

“I have had, and continue to have a very eclectic background in ministry and vocation. I enjoy living on a small farm where we have raised many types of animals (and 4 children). I teach high school math. I do my own hair as you can see from the glow around this ‘headshot.’
“I am listed in Who’s Who of American Church Leaders and Who’s Through in the Social Security Registry. I am already bored talking about myself. “
Director of Music
Mary-Jane Griffin, Director of Music
“I came to know Jesus as my Savior at a Billy Graham Crusade in 1964. Since I
was a little girl, I have always loved music and horses.”
After she graduated from Otterbein College with a BME as a voice major, and piano minor, Mary-Jane began her Master of Music study in Vienna and Graz, Austria, completing it at The Ohio State University. I sang professionally at
Temple Israel and First Community Church, Columbus. Afterward, I completed my Kodaly Music Certificate at Capital University.
“I have taught music in the Big Walnut School system and also at the Delaware Christian School. Connecting people to spiritual truth through teaching Adult Sunday School has been very rewarding, for nearly 30 years now.”
