Rick Knarr, Lead Pastor
Rick Knarr, Lead Pastor

I was born and raised in a suburb some 30 miles outside of Philadelphia, PA. There I was privileged to be raised in a Christian home where my parents were immersed in both local church ministry at Limerick Chapel and in a Summer Christian Camp, Camp Sankanac.  It was in the context of a Christian home and the ministries that took place in our home and outside of our home that I met many godly men and women who left a great godly impact on my life.
