Lead Pastor John Wenck Jr.
Lead Pastors John and Kristin Wenck
Pastor John was raised in Glen Burnie, MD and graduated from Calvary Temple Christian Academy in 1988. Although he was not raised in a Christian family, he was introduced to the Lord through family bible studies conducted by his uncle at his grandmother’s house. He first prayed to receive Jesus as Savior at his uncle’s Baptist church in November 11, 1981. He began to really serve the Lord at 14 and was filled with the Spirit and called into the ministry in 1985. Answering the call led him to Rhema Bible Training Center where he graduated in 1990 with an emphasis in pastoral ministry.
Pastor John has a wealth of church experience. His ministry experience ranges from Youth leader, Children’s Pastor, Singles Minister, Bible Study leader, and mentoring others. He was Montgomery Faith Fellowship first full-time paid Associate Pastor. He has worked in Prison Ministry and Street Evangelism. He loves ministering to those less fortunate by coordinating our holiday food and toy distribution programs in Washington, DC. On October 25, 1996 Pastor John married Pastor Kristin Miller, the daughter of Pastors Bob and Jeanne. They reside in Montgomery Village with their two beautiful children, Jonathan and Kaitlyn.
Pastor Kristin Wenck helps Pastor John with teaching the main congregation. She also helps the music ministry by playing the keyboard, as she is a trained pianist. She runs our church office, produces the church bulletin, and keeps the church financial records and books. She also oversees My Time Children’s Program. She is very talented and designs the slide programs and worship schedules for our video system.
Pastor Kristin graduated summa cum laude from Oral Roberts University in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Work, specializing in working with troubled teens. Upon graduating, she returned home and helped us during the summer while looking for employment as a Social Worker. As the story goes, her destiny was here at Montgomery Faith Fellowship and she has been a full time employee since 1994.
Pastor Kristin is the daughter of Pastors Bob and Jeanne and was raised in a Christian home. She was filled with the spirit at the age of 7. From an early age Pastor Kristin has maintained a close relationship with the Lord and since childhood she has always been involved in church activities. She also loves home decorating and being a mom to Jonathan and Kaitlyn.
