Pastor -Bryan Marler
Pastor Bryan was saved by the grace of God after hearing the glorious Gospel of Christ at the age of 8. At 20, he dedicated his life to pastoral ministry and now has over 12 years of experience in ministry. He has a passion for discipleship and seeing people’s lives transformed by the power of The Gospel and his favorite thing to do is teach The Bible. Bryan has been married to his wife Kylie since 2014 and they have three daughters: Amelia, Elaine, and Juliet.
Pastor Bryan’s ministry philosophy can be summed up in one verse: “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2.
Associate Pastor – Steve Celinski
Pastor Steve has been involved in evangelism and outreach for over 25 years. He has done pastoral care, counseled and started a recovery ministry. Pastor Celinski was born in Glen Cove, New York and has been married to his wife for more than 45 years. They have 3 children and 4 grandchildren who he loves to spend time with. Pastor Celinski has a passion to share his faith in Jesus Christ with others and helping them to grow in their relationship with Christ through the Word of God.
Two of my favorite verses are, John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”
2 Corinthians 5:20 , “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”
Church Secretary – Pam Lain
Pam has faithfully been attending First Baptist Church Spring Hill for 15 years. She became the secretary of the church in June of 2015. In addition to running the office, Pam teaches the Women’s Bible Study group on Sunday mornings, operates the power point during Worship services and leads the Youth Bible Study on Wednesday evenings.
Pam has believed in God and Jesus Christ, His only Son for most of her life. She confesses that she didn’t actually learn to believe in God until much later in life, when she completed reading the Chronological Bible in a year. She was pretty amazed that after reading the entire Bible, God’s message to her was a simple, “Believe me.” Pam continues to read through the Chronological Bible each year to keep her focus on Him and recommends everyone should spend time in God’s word on a daily basis.
Pam has been married to John Lain for over 35 years and they have two grown children,one in the ministry and one in the military.
