Leadership Team

Rev. Paul Barna: I have been the Lead Pastor since 2003. Prior to this, I worked in the semiconductor industry for 12 years in Allentown, PA until I sensed God’s call to full time ministry. My wife and I uprooted our family to Waterford, NY and have watched God do amazing things in our lives, as well as our children and community.  I also serve as the Northside Fire Co. and Waterford Fire Co. Chaplain and serve on the Northside Fire Co. as a Fire Commissioner. I am committed to seeing lives, families, our community, and surrounding areas transformed by the power of Christ.
