meet the team

We believe it takes a devoted and talented team of people to make the church happen. 

Here’s an introduction to a few of them.

  • Aaron Telecky, Pastor

    Aaron and his wife, Beth met at Emmaus Bible College where he earned a degree in Pastoral Theology. They are proud parents of six great kids: Alyssa and Luke, who are now Emmaus students too, and Cole, Levi, Silas & Lincoln who keep things lively at home. Aaron is a shameless fan of the Chicago White Sox, New York Giants and old Marx Brothers movies.
