Our Leaders

Pam Schleicher-Braden

Minister of Music

Pam has been directing church choirs for forty years. She has a special calling for we who are retired but still want to serve the church. Pam invites everyone to join in, especially those who have been told through the years they can’t sing. She truly has the gift of making a purse out of a sow’s ear. Those who have sung in choirs are, of course, invited too! Her choir rehearsals promise to raise your spirits, exercise your lungs and minds, and bless you with real joy and happiness. “A happy heart is expressed through singing.”

Rev. Dr. Richard P. Chandler

Senior Pastor

Rev. Dr. Richard (Rick) Chandler After retiring from a pastorate of 40 years, Pastor Rick was convinced by good friends to start an independent, multi-denominational Christian church, "New Light" in 2005. The experience has presented new faith and an energized spirit. Pastor Rick has come under new convictions, and is a member of the Black Robe Regiment: "With everything going on in our country right now, it has been demoralizing to watch us progressively travel away from what our founding fathers designed in the form of a Constitution. The precepts of the Judaeo/Christian ethic system have been forgotten, never learned or just plain disagreed with. This movement has given rise to anti-Godly decisions being made by political parties. The time has come, and is here, for pulpit ministers to speak out on the immorality, and the dangerous move toward a socialistic nation. We are digressing in the same way as pre-war Germany, Cuba, Venezuela and other countries that have allowed the tyranny of those seeking power and control over the masses to prevail. If we local pastors do not begin immediately to educate/remind our people of our heritage and history we too, are headed in the same self destructive direction. For this reason I have joined the Black Robe Regiment to share and receive resources that will play a role in the support and continued experiment of a free Republic." Rev. Dr. Richard ‘Rick” Chandler has the gift of relating the scriptures to our every day lives in a way that anyone can understand. His knowledge of the bible runs far and deep, and he will leave you wanting to know more!
