MARCY — Marcy Assembly of God, 9427 Maynard Drive, is welcoming a new pastor, Michael Melnick, on Sunday, Aug. 20.

“As a visionary leader, Pastor Mike has more than 10 years of pastoral leadership experience in student ministries,” church officials said. “His passion for the local church combined with a relevant and creative preaching style has propelled him through a number of unique opportunities of influence. Feeling the call of God to move into the role of lead pastor, he and his wife, Suzie, said they are excited about their move to Marcy to take over as lead pastor.”

Rev. Melnick was born and raised in a small town in northern Ontario, Canada. His wife of 13 years, Suzie, was born in an even smaller town in Indiana. As a youth, Melnick had aspirations of playing professional hockey, but the pastor said he felt the call to join his wife in full time ministry, running the largest Masters Commission (school of ministry) program for Canada. 

All may attend the 10 a.m. Sunday services.
