What is Life On Main?
LOVE = Love is at the core of all we do. We love God because He first loved us. We love fellow believers because God's love is the adhesive that binds us together. And we love the lost because God's love for them is in our hearts.
INSTRUCTION = Teaching the truths of God's Word is vital for any church that would grow up in the "unity of the faith," avoid error, and bring the body to the place of maturity the Lord has for them.
FELLOWSHIP = The Cross of Christ is both vertical and horizontal in nature. Our fellowship must first be heavenward in relationship with Christ, and secondly, peopleward in relationship with one another in the body.
EVANGELISM = "It's all about a soul." Jesus came to save sinners, and our charge is to do the same.
LIFE ON MAIN was founded in 2016 and belongs to a denomination known as the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. The Foursquare Church was founded by Aimee Semple McPherson in the early 1900's. Today there are over 60,000 churches meeting in 140 countries! We are proud to be a part of this family and a part of something bigger than ourselves. Though part of a denomination, LIFE ON MAIN seeks to partner with other Bible-believing Trinitarian churches in the area to advance the gospel in our region and beyond!
We have ministered in numerous Christian denominations over the years. We are ordained pastors who have served in pastoral ministry within the Foursquare Church for over 25 years as worship pastors, church planters, interim pastors, and lead pastors. We served Life Fellowship in Charlestown as assistant pastors for 8 years prior to being sent out by Life Fellowship to pastor Life On Main.In addition to serving as lead pastors, we serve various roles within community organizations, such as the Heritage Commission, Old Home Days Committee, as well as serving as producers at a community television station. On a personal note, we are the proud parents of 3 adult children... and recently 2 grandchildren.
I came to know the Lord in 1998 at Calvary Chapel in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I served in various ministries during my years there, including foreign missions. In 2009, I moved to NH and began attending our sister church, Life Fellowship. While there, I led numerous missions teams on trips to the Relief Bus in New York City. This led me to start "His Helping Hands" in Claremont, NH - a food outreach that ministered to the less fortunate, where I served as director for over 5 years. I received my District Ministerial License in May 2012 and was ordained in September 2018. In 2020, I became a Foursquare chaplain and served this role at Sullivan County Nursing Center. I currently oversee the Women's Ministry at Life On Main.
I am an ordained minister within the Foursquare Church and assist the lead pastors with the pastoral care and functions of the congregation at Life On Main. My wife Dottie and I have served in a missional capacity in the past as "camp pastors" at a secular campground in south-central New Hampshire for 6 years.
We became involved with the Charlestown Foursquare Church in 1990, where I first began serving as an assisting minister, prior to becoming an integral part of Life On Main. We have a current ministry focus to seniors in the church and the community.
I assist Life On Main with the clerical and organizational aspects of the ministry. I have served alongside my husband, Lance at the Charlestown Foursquare Church for many years. I have served in an administrative capacity for both businesses and ministries. I feel that a great administrator is essential to church growth, freeing up pastors to function in their calling.
Now retired in one sense of the word, my husband and I devote our time to ministry. We have gleaned much experience over many years in many churches from coast to coast. we are blessed to have touched many lives through ministry in New England.
I oversee the various prayer ministries at Life on Main. My husband Jim and I have served in Foursquare churches for about 30 years. I have ministered to children, both teaching and leading, for most of this time. I believe that prayer is a catalyst for the move of the Holy Spirit and crucial to the effectiveness and fruitfulness of the church.
I also serve as Director of Greater Things Ministries, a non-profit organization supporting missionaries in the Philippines and ministries in our local area. At home, I help my husband maintain our new home, where we raise berries, fruit trees, vegetables, and several flower gardens.
I made a choice to follow Jesus at age 10. I have sung in church choirs, ministry groups, and senior convalescent homes. My biggest moment was being involved in the Billy Graham Choir during his crusades. In 1995, I moved to NH and began singing with worship teams in various evangelical churches and became involved in Christian theatre. In 2012, my husband John and I started attending our sister church, Life Fellowship, where we kept busy with hospitality, custodial, and maintenance duties. In 2017, I followed the Lord's leading on my heart and joined the choir at Life On Main. In August 2021, I accepted the position of Minister of Music at Life On Main. In 2022, my husband and I completed ministry training through the International School of Ministry.
