Jesus Christ: Head Pastor




Rich Edwards: Lead Pastor (rich@layhillcc.org)

I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and to this day I am an avid Philadelphia ice hockey (Flyers) and football fan (Eagles). I love to play ice hockey, listen to good preaching, and visit Florida. Jennifer and I have been married for 27 years and we have been blessed with twin girls Erin, and Mallory.

The church is God’s idea. When I think of the church I do not see a building, but I see a group of people saved by God’s grace. Christians are real people and I am one of them who wrestle with life and all that it throws at us. Followers of Jesus are not better than other people, but we are simply better off because of Christ. We are called to mission. We are called to make disciples.

LeAnne Johnson – Administrative Secretary

I was born 3rd of eight children to Hubert and Jacquelyn Shorb. My parents took me to Layhill Free Methodist the first Sunday of my birth and I have attended for more than 50 years.

I married my high school sweetheart and we will celebrate our 38th anniversary in August 2016. Together we have 5 boys who have invited 4 beautiful women to be part of our family. We are Grammie & Papa to 4 beautiful, smart and funny grandchildren (2 boys and 2 girls).

In 2001 I watched God's hand at work when I was asked to be secretary at Layhill... with no skills! I love my job... I have loved the bosses God has placed in my life and I have learned more than I could have ever imagined! More than anything I love to serve my Savior.

God is so good!
