Pastor Ray Seilhamer

Interim Senior Pastor

It has been wonderful having Pastor Ray Seilhamer as our Interim Senior Pastor! God has used him to guide our church through a difficult time after the sudden loss of our long-time Senior Pastor, Christopher T. Little IV. Pastor Ray helped us through this greiving process, while helping us to honor and cherish the legacy that Pastor Chris left at Mt. Pleasant Church. Pastor Ray also helped us to continue to be a LIGHT to everyone around us. He has begun several new ministries, restoring and re-energizing our hearts and our strength for effective and vital ministry. We will miss Pastor Ray and Ruth a great deal and are thankful for the incredible investment they have made in our lives! He has helped us to look forward with joy to what God has in store for us in the future.
