Our Ministry Leaders

Sharon Mager, Youth Ministry Leader

I grew up in a Christian home and made a confession of faith when I was nine-years-old.  I grew strong in my faith in those tender years. The church was my home, and my friends were there. 

However, I also remember the pain of adolescence. A shy, chubby, awkward young girl, I was the butt of much bullying, and that hurt lasted a long time, and frankly, I still bear the scars. Seeing some of the faces of today’s awkward teens, many in pain, I want to be a vessel that God uses to love them, help them know that He is there, that He loves them, and that they can call out to Him and lean on Him in the good and bad moments of life. 

My experience has included ministry in music, teaching, youth, children, communication, school, and homeschool ministry. I am also fortunate to be able to minister in my job as a communications specialist with the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware. 

My most important role, however, is that of wife to my husband Barry, mother of three adult children, Michael, Shelley, and Steven, and grandmother of four, Hudson, Harper, Josiah, and Liam.

Kim Gayleard, Children’s Ministry Leader

My name is Kimberly Gayleard. I have been married for nearly 30 years. We have 3 children. I have 22 years experience working with children. I also have 8 years of special needs experience.I attended college to become a child psychologist but God had other plans! We soon began our family with our first born. And our second would very soon follow! The really cool thing is because of spina bifida I was not supposed to be able to have children. Our 3rd and final child, Blaine would take years to come. We also have 5 that would not see this world but directly go to live with Jesus.
While Ray and Kaitlyn were in school I volunteered at our local elementary school. During this time I was able to work with many different children. Each child has their own personality. This is something that is sometimes lost in our crowded school system. I specialized in working with “bad kids” as many would say. Not me. Each child had something going on and they needed someone to love them despite them being what the world calls, bad.
At NGCC we are committed to loving each child that comes through our doors with a Jesus kind of love. Each week your child will be engaged in a lively story brought right from the Bible ! We often have crafts and games to put a greater emphasis on the lesson learned. Should you have anymore questions please feel free to send me an email.

Joe Fleming, Men’s Ministry Leader

I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home and in local churches in Maryland where as a child I decided to accept the Lord Jesus into my life and follow Him.  I have enjoyed being involved with many ministries during my youth, college age years and into my adult years.  This has included music and drama ministry, children and youth ministry, evangelism, men’s ministry, small group Bible studies, and domestic and foreign missions.

I am excited to serve in our Men’s Ministry here at NGCC and see how God will work in our lives as we encourage our brothers in our Christian faith and to grow together in our spiritual walk with our Heavenly Father.  It is encouraging to see the NGCC men actively serving within the church and striving to expand our out-reach to the community to those who also need Jesus Christ in their lives.  As brothers in Christ we are committed to praying for one another and challenging each other to pursue a stronger connection with Jesus. 

I am also thankful to work with the middle-school and high-school youth at our church.  In my early years, I was blessed to have a vibrant youth program and a strong youth Pastor to help me grow in my faith. This has challenged me to reach our youth at NGCC also.

I continue to be excited about the opportunity to lead the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child ministry at NGCC, as we build and collect shoebox gifts among our church attenders and we regularly volunteer at the local Processing Centers to prepare the boxes to reach millions of children around the world who need to know about the greatest gift of Jesus’s love for them.

Proverbs 27:17 – As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

I’m really excited about being the Women’s Ministry Leader and getting together to fellowship, grow in the Lord together, getting to know one another, and serving the Lord together.

I hope we can be unified as the Women of the Church in growing in our love and care for one another. I’m looking forward to spending time with all of you ladies and being able to serve you.

My favorite chapter in the Bible is Philippians 4.

Michele Priebe, Greeters Ministry Leader

A need for a new Director of the Greeters Ministry turned into a great opportunity to get to better know Members and Visitors of Northglen Church. Debbie Richardson and I started out greeting and , as time went by, other people expressed an interest to join our team. Usually two friendly, smiling faces are posted at the front foyer area when people come in for Sunday service, whether they are Members or new guests. It is a simple but important service, welcoming people and sometimes answering questions they may have.

Getting to know others also is helpful to me to guide them to their Spiritual Gifts and to find their ‘nitch’ and feel comfortable serving in the Church Body and our various Ministries.

Matthew 25:38-40 ‘And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you…’

Kristina Gaona, Bridge Builders Ministry and Harvest Food Pantry Leader

Bridge Builder is a ministry that began 4 years ago as a partnership with North Glen Elementary School (NGES), across the street from the church. During that time, North Glen Community Church (NGCC) has provided direct support to the school. We have ministered in a variety of ways through providing support for Teachers Appreciation week, to clothing drives, a backpack exchange to provide food  supplies to those who need them the most, along with other ministry events.
We are now hosting a monthly Drive-Thru Food Pantry which is for the entire community of North Glen, in providing tangible goods as we demonstrate the love of Christ for all people.  These events take a lot of planning and need the involvement from our church members and others willing to help.
Are you looking for a way to make a difference for the people of our community, but don’t quite know how to go about it? Well, here is a way to show the love of Jesus to those within our community. Jesus tells us to feed the hungry, cloth the poor and minister to the sick, along with sharing the gospel.
So if you want to make a difference in someone’s life then hop on board. Please prayerfully consider helping.  We are better together than we are alone
