Pastor Jeffrey Bateman

Pastor Bateman was born and raised just a few miles south of Philadelphia, PA. He counts it a great blessing to have grown up in a Christian home surrounded not only by parents who knew the Lord, but also grandparents and great grandparents. He was saved as a young child and had the opportunity to receive a quality Christian education. In light of these privileges, Pastor Bateman has a burden for the next generation with the desire to see them know, love, and serve their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
