About Me

I'm Jeff McLain, and this is a small glimpse at my story and adventures.

I am Jeff McLain. I enjoy rocking the suburbs of East Petersburg, exploring a missional approach to difference making in our neighborhoods and serving as Associate Pastor at East Petersburg Mennonite Church.

Life here is full of #EastPeteHappy as I am involved as a volunteer with the East Petersburg Events Committee, facilitator of the East Petersburg Minister's Meet Up and coach for church planters at Church On The Other Side.

I also enjoy brainstorming with individuals, churches and church planters on how to be intentionally creative communities of discipleship and mission in their neighborhoods. Together let's explore a missional approach to difference making in our neighborhoods.

Collaborations and Involvements.

A few things that I find myself involved with and collaborate on.

There Goes The Neighborhood Part 1: Intentionally Committed

When we buy a house most of us buy a house in a neighborhood, because we like the neighborhood in which the house is. At that point, we are intentionally committed to getting the place we want, and where we want it. There are lots of reasons we decide to buy a house somewhere. Usually, […]

Shadow of the Cross, a worship gathering on the eve of Easter

Followers of Jesus without doubt look forward to celebrating the Easter Season. A season in which we celebrate that Jesus is Lord. It is a time in which we claim triumph as we remember that Jesus, in his earthly life, had overcome everything from disease, oppression and even death. The Easter season so meaningfully correlates with Spring. […]
