The Blue Ball Church of the Brethren is served by a team of ministers -- all bivocational -- who have been called out of the congregation to serve.
Rick is the newest addition to the leadership team and is such a blessing to our church family as he serves as a Teaching Minister. He and his wife, Helen, have been married for over 41 years. They have been blessed with 11 children, with 1 of them still living at home. They are also proud grandparents of 15 grandchildren. Rick is employed by Nature's Yoke.
Aaron Weaver - Retired
Aaron was ordained in the ministry in 1971. Aaron worked as a self employed farmer for many years. While Aaron is "retired" from preaching at Blue Ball, he continues to bless many who need encouragement with his visits.
Sadly, in November 2012, he had to say goodbye to Judy, his beautiful and faithful wife of 54 years. Judy battled with cancer, always with a joyful spirit, and up to the very end, was always praising God for her many blessings. Aaron has been blessed with 6 children, 21 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
Joel Hershey - Moderator
Joel was ordained in the ministry in 1978. He and his wife, Jane, have been married for 48 years. They have 4 children and are the proud grandparents of 5 beautiful grandchildren. Joel served as lead pastor from 1999 to 2008. Today he is retired as a Pastor at Blue Ball, but serves as our church moderator. He also is currently serving as Interim Pastor at Long Run Church of the Brethren.
