Pastor of Youth & Families: Pastor Mike McGarry
Pastor Mike has served the next generation and their parents at EBC since 2005. He and his wife, Tracy, both grew up a few towns over in Easton and have two children, Matthew and Hannah. They are both passionate about investing in the next generation (Tracy is a Middle School teacher). Mike's driving passion is to help others discover how the gospel changes everything in life - our identity, our purpose, and our sense of belonging in this crazy world. He loves the Patriots, a good cup of coffee, and is an avid reader and writer. You can read his stuff on his own blog, LivingTheologically, or on The Rooted Blog. He is also the author of A Biblical Theology of Youth Ministry: Teenagers in the life of the Church (Randall House Academic, forthcoming June 2019). Contact Pastor Mike
