Our pastor, Peter Kemeny, grew up in Sparta, New Jersey. He is a graduate of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia.
Before coming to Good News Presbyterian in 2001, he served for ten years at the First Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Burlington, North Carolina, where he focused on preaching and youth ministry. Our pastor aims to explain the Bible clearly, apply it concretely, and show how all of Scripture points to Jesus Christ.
Peter has interned with the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and the Presbyterian Church in America and served in Belgium with the missions agency, Operation Mobilization.
His wife, Becky, is a native of Clinton, Illinois. They are the parents of five children.
Randy Marcoz is a licensed minister serving as an assistant minister during a one-year church planting residency. A native of western Maryland, Randy is a retired army Lt. Colonel, having served mainly in the areas of intelligence and counterintelligence. He completed his Master of Divinity degree at Liberty Theological Seminary and also holds an M.S. in Forensic Psychology.
While serving at Good News Randy is laying the groundwork for planting a church in Jefferson County, West Virginia.
Randy and his wife Susan live in Falling Waters, WV, just north of Martinsburg.
Because a church will not rise above the quality of its leaders we seek men who are godly, who are committed to ministry, and who meet the scriptural qualifications for church office as set forth in such passages as I Timothy 3 and Titus 1.
Our elders are the shepherds and spiritual leaders of the church (I Peter 5:1-3; Acts 20:17,28-38). They oversee, care for, teach the Bible to, pray for, guide, correct, and guard the flock of God.
We also have a board of deacons. Deacons are servants (Acts 6:1-7). They carry on a ministry of mercy to those in distress or material need, oversee the church’s property and financial affairs, and encourage stewardship among the members.
