PASTOR JANET PRATT
Education: Methodist Theological School of Ohio
Pastor Janet and her husband Mike have been serving the Lord in many ways most of their lives. Pastor Janet has been in pastoral ministry since 2012. Her passion is to "Make Jesus Known" to everyone in our community. They have two children, Hannah and Daniel, who also serve as pastors in the Harrisburg area. Pastor Janet and Mike approach ministry as a team. They are firmly rooted in their faith and believe that the Bible is the indisputable inspired Word of God. They also hold that salvation comes through faith and faith without works is dead because Jesus is the way, the truth, and the light.
Favorite Verse: Psalm 46:10 says, "Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
