Pastor Chris Miller

Chris Miller, Pastor

I am so glad you have chosen to spend a few moments getting to know us and discovering more about our church activities as well as our church family. We are a people who love and serve together just like family.

As a church, we are a group of people committed to following Jesus. That means we worship Him with great joy. Because of our great joy, we love people outside the church through generosity, invitation, service, and compassion.  We are proud to be located in the heart of Brookville.  We believe that our location places right in the center of our community and every direction we reach can be touched by the hope and love of Jesus from the inside out! Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed at Brookville Community Church. It is our prayer that you would know and love Jesus Christ. 

We sincerely want that for you. Come as you are. Check us out, but more importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus. I’d like to extend an invitation to you: Would come to a worship service? I’d like you to feel the up-close, in-person fellowship that comes when people share time together in the presence of the Holy Spirit. 

I’m so glad you visited our website, I hope you feel encouraged to come. I would love to meet you and to know you. 

With Peace and Blessings, Pastor Chris Miller
