Jeremy-medium

Jeremy Gyorke - Founder and Lead Pastor

I have been a pastor for 16 years. My wife Julie and I are so thankful we were able to start Wyandotte Family Church back in September 2010. I love serving as the lead pastor and the past 6 years have gone by fast. My favorite aspect of ministry is talking and praying with people. I love to encourage people and help people discover how much Jesus loves them and is with them!

First and foremost, my spare time is spent loving and connecting with my family. Having four children is a lot of work, but even more joy!!! I love to hang out with people, drink strawberry smoothies, and enjoy fantasy football.

I love Jesus so much because I have never encountered such love and grace in my entire life. Not only His death on the cross for my sins, but His continual grace, forgiveness, love, strength, power, and hope He gives me is amazing! I love following Jesus and letting Him transform me one day at a time.

Wyandotte Family is truly a special place. I love the authenticity, the energy, and the raw passion for Jesus. I love how we work hard to make it simple for people to find and follow Jesus. I love being a part of a church like this! 

Jeremy has a B.A. in Youth Ministry & Bible from Central Bible College. He will be pursuing his Masters in Pastoral Leadership starting the fall of 2017.

Julie-medium

Julie Gyorke - Children's Pastor

I have been the children’s pastor and teaching the kids at Wyandotte Family since we started our launch group in 2009, but I have been involved in children’s ministry since I was a teenager. Teaching is definitely my favorite part of ministry. I love creatively sharing Jesus and watching kids come alive by the knowledge of God’s love!

In my spare time, I love to hang out with my four kids and Jeremy.

I love Jesus so much, because He first loved me! He never gives up on me, and has this amazing plan and adventure for my life.

Wyandotte Family is a great place to serve, because you can be yourself!!


Julie has a B.A. in Children’s Ministry & Bible from Central Bible College and a M.A. in Pastoral Clinical Counseling from Ashland University

 

Jessica-medium

Jessica Sellenberg - Youth Pastor

I have been the youth pastor here at Wyandotte Family for the last two years. My favorite thing about my ministry here is building relationships with people!

I love spending time with my husband, Michael. Together we enjoy restoring furniture.

I love Jesus so much because in His grace, He still loves me and uses me, despite my failures.

Wyandotte Family Church is such a clear picture of the New Testament church. It’s an honor to serve in a community that understands how Jesus designed the church to function.

Jessica has a B.A. in Youth Ministry with a minor in music from Lee University.

Michael-medium

Michael Sellenberg - Music Director

I love to lead others into the presence of God through music and singing. When people connect with God through music, their lives are changed.

In my spare time I love to read comics, restore furniture, and play X-Box. I love puns and have the championship belt in the thumb wrestling associatoin of America. (ok, maybe not the last statement).

Mike-medium

Michael Morche - Operations & Communication Director

I’ve been involved in ministry for over 45 years, the past 12-14 in full time ministry, in both pastoral and administrative leadership capacities. My favorite aspect of ministry is people! Especially with respect to helping them discover and grow their giftings and talents, and then partnering with them to do great things for God and other people. Effectively, growing relationships and community life together. I’m a networker!

I love spending time at home with my wife Marsha and our two dogs, sipping coffee on the back porch. I also enjoy playing my guitars and singing when the rare opportunity presents itself… and I LOVE being overrun by our four kids, their spouses, and our ten grandkids, whenever they drop by to invade our peaceful home.

Bottom line, I love Jesus so much, because He’s never judged me for my mistakes and shortcomings; He’s never abandoned me through all of life’s difficulties and disappointments, He constantly challenges me to be more like Him, and He has always been quick to remind me that He loved and accepted me first. He’s my closest friend and confidant.

I love the people here at Wyandotte Family! Marsha and I have known Pastor Jeremy and Julie for several years, and understood and appreciated their hearts of love and service. From the minute we arrived, we felt that same heart in all of the people we encountered here at Wyandotte Family. We have since come to better know and experience both the people and the culture more personally, and have found a deep love and commitment to both God and one other in every aspect and nuance of life here, which was very endearing to us. For myself, I have a strong sense that my personal passions, giftings, and strengths are something that God can use here at Wyandotte Family, to help make a difference in the lives of the people and families connected here.
