Founding Pastor/WCMN Director
In 1977, Sam and Sherlyn Smucker were asked to consider coming back to Lancaster to pastor a new church after graduating from Bible school in Tulsa, Oklahoma. That congregation has grown to over 4,000 today, and they have shared their lives and led this congregation faithfully for 40 years. On June 11, Sam and Sherlyn completed their 40 years of ministry, transferring the lead pastor role to Matt and Kelly Mylin.
Sam continues to serve with Sherlyn as they oversee Worship Center Ministers Network, a ministry that credentials and mentors pastors and ministry leaders around the world.
Sam also serves as the Northeast Regional Director for RHEMA Ministerial Association International.
