"Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." Philippians 2:3,4

Pastor Justin - I am married to my amazing wife Rachel. Along with being on staff as youth pastor here at WABC, I work for Garden of Eden Produce. I enjoy playing basketball and reading. Ever since middle school I knew I wanted to be involved in youth ministry. This is due in large part to the impact my youth pastor had in my life and I also want to have a similar impact. There is something wonderful about seeing teens living out their faith that encourages me to keep ministering to them.
Rachel Neyer - I am married to my wonderful husband Justin. We have been married for almost 4 years. We have an energetic dog named Sniffles. I love getting to be at home with Justin and Sniff, and going on walks with them. I also really enjoy sitting down with a good book. I work at Lancaster Bible College as a Department Assistant in the Church & Ministry Leadership Department. I have been volunteering in youth ministry for quite a few years and absolutely love it. The teens are so much fun to be around, and yet it also allows for some really deep conversations. Seeing them come to God and then grow in a relationship with Him overjoys me.
Laura Johnson - I started youth ministry because I wanted to have a positive effect on kids similar to the one I received as a teen. Youth group was very formative for me spiritually and I want to pass this along. With that being said, I have stayed in youth ministry because I love kids and they are awesome! When not at YG I hang out with my husband Andrew Johnson, work at HARTZ Physical Therapy as a PTA, and spend time at the gym.
Matt Keith - I am married to my wife Jess and have two wonderful girls, Megan and Emma. I enjoy sports and being a big kid. That makes me fit in well with the teens. I enjoy being able to get to know the teens and what they are going through as well as having fun with them. Since none of those things pay the bills, I work for Cintas delivering medical first aid equipment to companies.
