• Senior Pastor:  Bruce McKanna

    Bruce grew up in Ohio as a pastor's kid, but he didn't sense his own call to ministry until after college.  He studied History and Social Sciences with Secondary Education at Cedarville University, later completing seminary training at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.  He is married to Katie, and they have been blessed with two sons:  Jack and Andrew.  Bruce served as the associate pastor at EFCMM from 2002-08, and as our senior pastor since 2008.  He counts it one of God's great gifts to be able to shepherd this flock.  Email Bruce.

  • Associate pastor:  Logan murphy

    Logan joined our staff at the very beginning of 2018.  He met his wife Michelle at Lee University, which is near his hometown in southeast Tennessee, though she is from Florida.  Logan graduated from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in the spring of 2018, not long after he and Michelle had welcomed their first child, a son named John.  Logan's primary responsibilities are for our Youth and Worship Ministries.  Email Logan.

  • MInistry Assistant:  Joyce Long

    Joyce has been a member of the Evangelical Free Church of Mt. Morris since 1990.  She is married to Mark, whose parents and grandparents were charter members of EFCMM.  Over the years she has served our church in a variety of ways, including as a Sunday School teacher, Women’s Ministry leader, and Bookkeeper.  As our Ministry Assistant, she uses her gifts to support our pastors and facilitate various ministries.  Email Joyce.

  • Secretary:  Peggy Berry

    Peggy has been a part of this church since childhood, and so it was especially meaningful for her to join our staff as secretary in 2016.  She is always ready to welcome those who stop by our office, or to pray with someone in need over the phone.  Peggy and her husband Steve have also been long-time Sunday School teachers for our preschool class.  Their adult daughter Bethany is also a part of our ministry, and they live in the neighboring community of Oregon.  Email Peggy.
