    Pastor of Discipleship and Pastoral Care


    Pastor of Administration and teaching

    Mike and Jen Haddox were called to serve as pastors First Presbyterian Church in the Fall of 2021.  They are a husband and wife team who share the lead pastor role, with Mike taking the lead in discipleship, preaching, and pastoral care and Jen leading the staff and session.  They share a deep commitment to equipping the church to grow as disciples and make disciples and a call to engage in mission locally and globally. They love spending time with their two boys and extended family in the region.  In their free time, they enjoy movies, cooking and eating good food, and road-trip adventures.


    Summer Student Ministry Intern

    Karis just finished her junior year at Grove City College where she is an RA in a freshman girls’ dorm, and is studying Biblical and Religious Studies and Christian Ministry. She’s from Fairport, NY where she’s been involved as a student leader in youth group and kids ministry.  If she could be best friends with a biblical figure (other than God) she would choose Daniel.  She likes BBQ sauce on pizza, burgers, & fries and is seldom seen without coffee in her hand.


    Director of Children's Ministry & Worship

    I joined the First Pres. staff during the Fall of 2010. I attended Messiah College and Waynesburg University before singing opera professionally and becoming a vocal coach, both of which I still do.  When I'm not making music, I enjoy reading and being with friends and family, and I love wildlife and nature.


    director of discipleship & ministry

    I joined the First Pres staff during the summer of 2008.  I have a Masters degree in Christian Formation and Ministry from Wheaton College.  My position at First Pres is in partnership with the CCO, which is a campus ministry organization.  I spend a significant portion of my time reaching out to students on the Waynesburg University campus.  I love spending time with my husband, Mike, and two kids and adventuring in the outdoors.
