Pastor’s Report (by the Numbers)
After spending the past 20 years as pastor of Mountain View Fellowship and helping establish the church in McGaheysville, Wayne Pence retired from ministry at the end of December, 2020. Jerry Ruff is serving as interim pastor while the search committee looks for another person to minister to the Mountain View family.
A native of Augusta County, Jerry has served as a pastor in the Church of the Brethren for 38 years and, after retiring
in 2008, as an interim pastor at different churches for another 9 years. He is known for his work with the Shenandoah District’s Disaster Ministries, serving as district coordinator for the past 25 years. He began his responsibilities at Mountain View Fellowship on January 2.
“The people I’ve worked with at Mountain View are Christ-like,” says Jerry. “I like that it’s a service-oriented church, one that strives to ‘continue the work of Jesus, peacefully, simply, together.’ I look forward to helping the church develop its leadership as it looks for a new pastor.” - Jerry Ruff
