Staff And Leaders

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Springs Mennonite Church web site!


The Springs Church is a diverse group of people who come from a variety of faith backgrounds and experiences. What unites us is our common mission to gather as God’s people, to grow in understanding God’s Word and grace, and to go and serve others in Jesus’ name.

Our vision at Springs Mennonite Church is that we have been changed by Jesus Christ. Saved by His love and forgiveness, we are empowered to carry forth His ministry through obedience, teaching, service and healing. Reaching out to all people by faith, we journey together praying, worshiping, and making disciples. By our living in the Spirit, we reflect His love, joy, hope, and peace.

Please know that you are welcome and invited to participate in any program or any time of worship. You don’t need to be a “member” to participate. Everyone is welcome.

If there is a way we can be helpful to you and/or your family, please let us know. We are here for you, and we look forward to the opportunity to be of service.

To learn more about the ministries and opportunities available at Springs, please feel free to continue to browse our website. You can also call the church office at 814-662-4201. We welcome the opportunity to visit with you and tell you more about Springs.

Thank you for visiting our web site! If you are not already attending Springs we encourage you to also visit and participate in our church. May God bless you as you continue your journey of faith.




Interim Pastor: Paul Versluis III


Joy and I have been in love for over 50 years (and married for 48 years). It has been “an easy love.” We have five children and ten grandchildren who live in five states. We recently moved to Broadway, VA, purchased eight acres in the country and are finishing a passive solar house we had built in order to be near one of our children. To read more of Paul’s bio…


The Tired Dog: 

An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard; I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.
He calmly came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head; he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall, curled up in the corner and fell fast asleep.
An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. To read more…
