Tim Miller

Tim grew up in Northwestern PA where he was raised in the Corry Alliance Church. He accepted Christ as his Savior at a very young age, and while he can’t point to an exact moment in which his faith became legitimate, he can say that by 7th grade he could start to see his life and worldview differ from his peers. This is the time in his life where his faith began to truly grow, and he first learned to walk with God on a daily basis and he has been walking with the Lord ever since. He was baptized at age 16 in the Corry Alliance Church and in college he was a member of Cru at Penn State, where he majored in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering.

After college, he was a member of Grace Community Church in Corning, NY, until he moved back to Central Pennsylvania in 2013. He started attending SCEFC in 2013 and  became a member in early 2014. Since then he has served on the worship team and currently serves as the Facilities Director for the church.

Bill Simon

Bill grew up in western Pennsylvania and attended a United Methodist church throughout his childhood, gaining knowledge about the Bible from the pastors and teachers there. As a college student at Penn State, he met some dedicated and joyful believers and came to realize that he had not fully committed himself to Jesus Christ; He gave his life to Him as a sophomore and became very active in campus ministry. Since then it has been his desire to serve in areas where God has given him skills or strong interests, including musical worship, missions, and ministry to college students. Bill enjoys serving on the church’s worship, missions, and facilities teams and as a campus ministry affiliate at Penn State.
