Our Shepherds


Mike and Donna began attending Pitman Road in 1996 after moving to New Jersey from Omaha, Nebraska.  They were married in 1978 and have two adult children: Rebekah who attends Pitman, and works for Dow/DuPont and Elizabeth a middle school math teacher living in Virginia. Recently retired, Mike was an engineer and Donna is a former first grade teacher. They are celebrating their retirement with travel!  Before attending Pitman, Mike was an elder in Omaha, NE, and Painesville, OH.  Mike was appointed as an elder at Pitman Road in 2007 after serving as a deacon for a number of years. Mike's ministry has included Caring and Sharing (people in need) and Seniors.  Mike has also served as a LIFE group leader and Bible school teacher. It is important to him as an elder to be sure our members feel heard. Donna is involved in the Women's Ministry, Family Promise, teaches children’s’ Bible classes, leads the Barnabas Ministry, and is well known for hosting the Annual Cookie Party. She is also known for her excellence at leading games and for her collection of holiday sweaters!
