“Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching” – I Timothy 5:17
Mark Hanson (Clerk of Session)
Mr. Hanson an engineer at CTS. Mark has served as an elder at MCPC since 2007. He and his wife, Sally, have one grown daughter.
Mr. DeRoos is a charter member of MCPC and has served as an elder since 1998. He and his wife, Diane, have three grown children.
Mr. Irvin has lived in Michiana all his life. His wife Jamie is also a lifetime local. They began to attend evening services at MCPC in spring 2009, and it was soon clear that the LORD was calling them to serve His Kingdom there. “The Christ-centered expository preaching and commitment to worship found at MCPC have helped us to grow in grace and love.” After working at Keystone RV for 12 years he is now a full time pastoral intern at MCPC, studying at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. He and his wife Jamie are licensed foster parents. In their free time they enjoy playing with their dog, reading, and watching movies. Sunday afternoon fellowship with friends is also a favorite activity. He served as a deacon at MCPC from 2012-2014, and as an elder since 2014. He is also a licensed preacher in the Great Lakes Presbytery of the PCA, and is preparing for pastoral ministry.
Rolf Caylor (1933-2015)
Mr. Caylor was programming computers back in the era of punch cards and magnetic-core memory. A native of Ohio, and a son of a Presbyterian manse, Rolf served as an elder at MCPC from 2003-2014. His remarkable gift in 2004 enabled us to build our church building. At the time of the donation he said that he had always wondered why God had never given him a wife and children as he had so often prayed — but that when he found MCPC in his sixties, he discovered the reason: so that he might be able to provide a place of worship for the many children of the church. At the time of his death, he had 143 spiritual grandchildren (the number of children for whom he had served as elder).
