Rev. Josh McKamy became a Christian during his freshman year of college at Bucknell university through the ministries of Disciplemakers (a college ministry) and Redeemer OPC, Danville. During his time at Bucknell, Josh grew in his love for sharing the good news of Jesus with others, and through studying the Bible came to a conviction that the Reformed faith is most faithful to the Bible. This conviction was confirmed during his 4 years studying theology at Westminster Theological Seminary near Philadelphia prior to his ordination. Having become a Christian largely through the ministry of a church plant, new churches are something which have always been on his heart, so he was excited about the opportunity to serve here in Chambersburg!
Josh is a graduate of Bucknell University with a B.A. in Classics and of Westminster Theological Seminary with an M.Div in Pastoral Studies. He and his wife, Kristen, were married in 2009 and have three children.
Ruling elders are the particular representatives of the people, chosen by them from their own number, for the purpose of joining with the pastors or ministers in the government and discipline of the Church. This office is recognized in Holy Scripture.
The Scriptures clearly point out deacons as distinct officers in the Church, whose business it is to take care of the poor, and to distribute among them the collections which may be raised for their use.
