A Note from Rubens:

I’m so thankful to be serving Christ as an under shepherd for a great church like Lewisburg Alliance. I lead a gifted and motivated staff and make disciples alongside some of the most incredible people on the planet. Not to mention the awesome privilege of communicating the Gospel message from the Scriptures each and every week. Outside of this, you can find me with my beautiful wife (Beth) enjoying our new grand-daughter, Nora, and all that the Lewisburg Area has to offer.

 My wife and I have had the privilege to serve Lewisburg Alliance since 2004.  We have two daughters, Abigail and Elizabeth, who are married to two great godly men and they serve 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).

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.

Youth Pastor - Collin Savidge

Youth Pastor

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 full time 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 am beyond grateful to serve and lead here at LAC!

Administrative Assistant-Beth Ruba

Beth is our Lead Pastor's wife, and mother of two daughters, Abigail and Elizabeth. She is a graduate of Bloomsburg University, and for many years, taught in both public and Christian schools.  In 2007, she was hired as the Administrative Assistant.  Beth also served as our Children's Ministry director before hiring one full time. 

Her friendly and warm smile is a welcome to many who visit the church.
