RAISE UP DISCIPLES TO IMPACT THEIR WORLD

We are a community of believers from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We come from different walks of life and we all are being transformed to be more like Jesus Christ.  We are passionate about living our lives as fully devoted followers of Christ, caring for one another, and sharing the transforming love and power of Christ with others.  

OUR STAFF

  • PASTOR JIM & PASTOR KELLY TUTTLE

    LEAD PASTORS


    We got married in 1990 and continue to grow more and more in love with each other. We have four amazing children, love going to the beach, outdoor activities, really anything that allows us to spend time together as a family. Faith Chapel has been our church since 1996 and we have served in youth ministry, children's ministry, small groups, outreaches, construction and women's ministry (Kelly) as volunteers. We both attended and graduated from the first graduating class of Missio School of Ministry (now called Impact School of Ministry). Jim also  received his MA in Practical Theology from Regent University. We came on staff in 2003, starting in youth ministry. We became the lead pastors in 2009 and are honored to lead this amazing Faith Chapel family.

    CHILDREN'S DIRECTORS


    Paul and I have been married since 2003 and we have three awesome boys. We met through Paul's sister while her and I attended Elim Bible Institute together.  After graduating the Lord lead me to Syracuse where I started attending Faith Chapel. I've called Faith Chapel home since 2001 and have been on staff since 2010. We have been involved in youth ministry prior to working in children’s ministry.  I also received further education from Roberts Wesleyan Collage in addition to Elim Bible Institute. Paul and I love the outdoors. One of our favorite things to do is hike and find waterfalls.

    My husband, Thom, and I have been attending Faith Chapel since 1998, and I’ve been on staff as office manager since 2009. Thom and I met shortly after his honorable discharge from the US Navy after 6 years of service. We have been married over 40 years and have two wonderful adult children and four terrific grandchildren. Thom and I both graduated from the former Living Faith Global Ministries (currently Missio Global Ministries) in 2005, and were ordained in 2011. We enjoy traveling, camping and serving the Lord together. My favorite pastime is swimming, and I enjoy reading.
