The Pastoral Family
Dave earned a graduate degree in Chemistry from Cornell University and is an entrepreneur at heart, having founded and operated his own environmental monitoring business for fifteen years. He enjoys spending time relaxing with his family or getting to know new people. He is presently employed as a research scientist at Pall Corporation. Dave’s passion is in knowing and doing God’s will; that has included serving in the local church, interacting with colleagues in the laboratory, and working as a businessman.
Faith is an author and speaker with a Bachelor of Christian Ministry Degree from Chesapeake Bible College and Seminary in Ridgely, MD. She is passionate about encouraging spiritual growth in the Church by bringing the Bible to life through relevant and applicable teaching.
The Bogdans have four daughters who are also servant-ministers at WCC: Anna, Sarah, Rebecca, and Ruth.
Beth has over 20 years of experience teaching kids and youth, and lived for more than 15 years in the Philippines as a missionary with her late husband Jim and their three children. She brings a wealth of Bible knowledge, joy, fun, and enthusiasm to our kids' church program, ages 4-12.
Our Amazing Team of Elders (photos and bios to come!)
WCC is led by a board of seven elders and trustees, combined. Our elders function in a pastoral role, serving the physical and spiritual needs of the congregation. Our trustees fulfill the legal requirement of New York state, and serve to make important financial decisions concerning the church. Dave and Faith are blessed to have a solidly unified leadership team with which to pastor WCC.
