Ministry Staff at First Pres.

First Presbyterian Church of Waynesburg is blessed with a ministry staff that serves and leads the congregation in a variety of ways. If you have any questions for any of our staff, feel free to reach out to them by clicking their name to email them. 


    Co-Lead Pastors

    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.  Based on their unique and complementary gifting,  Mike takes the lead in family ministry, preaching, and pastoral care, and Jen takes the lead in directing the staff, session, and ministry teams.  

    They share a deep commitment to equipping the church to grow as disciples who are engaged 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.


    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 CONNECTION 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.

    I joined the First Pres staff in the summer of 2020.  Prior to this position, I worked at home (and still do) while raising our son and daughter, who are now in college.  I enjoy time with my family, music, gardening, boating and crafts.
