 I'm  Pastor Rubens Ruba .  My wife and I have had the privilege to serve Lewisburg Alliance since 2004.  We have two daughters, Abigail and Elizabeth, who are serving the Lord.  I am a graduate of Philadelphia Biblical University (BS in Bible/Pastoral Studies;  Master of Divinity from Bethel Seminary;  and a Doctor of Ministry from Luther Rice Seminary).

I'm so glad you've decided to visit and learn more about us. As you tour our Web site, you'll find information and resources to help you become better acquainted with LAC.

Our services are designed for everyone to enjoy--even if you've never been to church before. Whether you're a Christ-follower or a spiritual seeker, we'll communicate the truth from the Bible in a way that's easy for you to understand and apply to your daily life. And when you visit us, you'll meet friendly people who will help you find your way around our facilities and answer any questions you may have.

One more thing, Churches can be very lonely places even though you are surrounded by a group of people. That's why we have created a network of small groups. If you'd like to develop authentic and enduring relationships with others, then you'll be glad to know new groups are forming all the time. Whether you are single, married, single again, with or without children, we invite you to experience the difference that Jesus can make.

Hi, I am Pastor Michael Phelps.  I have attended Lewisburg Alliance Church since my family moved to the Mifflinburg area in 1978.  My wife Debra and I met and were married here in Lewisburg.  We have four children Rachel, Joshua, Luke and Seth.

Deb and I owned and operated a camping resort north of Mifflinburg.  We felt God’s calling and sold the park in 2008.  I did my schooling through the Alliance’s Ministerial Study Program and came on staff in 2010.  I oversee the small group ministry, Christian Education, and outreach for the Family Life Center.

Hello! My name is Collin Savidge and I have been the youth pastor at LAC since November 2nd 2014! I was born in Lewisburg Pa, But moved around a lot during my childhood. I have lived in Ann Arbor MI, and also Guilderland NY. I graduated from Lewisburg High School in 2008, and continued my education at Geneva College till I graduated in 2012. I originally went to school for Business, but found out the God had other plans for me. When I was a sophomore I felt God's calling to Fulltime ministry and immediately switched my majors!

Right After graduation I started my first Fulltime ministry position at Saint Andrew's UMC in Milton PA. I spent around 2.5 years there until I felt the call back to my home church here at LAC! My degree in Youth and Young adult ministry is great, but nothing can replace the investment that both SAUMC and LAC have made in me! I beyond grateful to serve and lead here at LAC!
