Gary Shallenberger - Elder

I am the youngest of four (2 brothers & 1 sister), Erie native born and raised in Millcreek Township. I grew up with “going to church” being a big part of my life and I attended the same church for 35 years. I was married at the age of 21 and divorced with a son by 25.

I married a wonderful woman 2 years later, but during the period of my first and second marriage, God revealed to me that I was not totally surrendered to Him. I fully trusted my life to Him and soon realized that my family and I needed to find a local church that was both Biblical and loving. With constant persistence from a friend who kept on inviting me to MCC, my family started to attend MCC in 2001.

I enjoy riding my motorcycle, leading a small group for men and being part of the Elder Team. I have seen many changes over these past 13 years, but the one constant that has remained the same is that God's word is being preached and people are being transformed by His word here at MCC. I am excited to see how God is going to make Himself known and how MCC will make Him known to others through His children each day I am here. I love my church family and my main prayer for us all is that God's name be glorified in all we do.
