About Katie and Jeff McLain

About Katie and Jeff McLain

We met each other in September of 2004. Jeff had just returned to the Lancaster County area and was reconnecting with some old friends at the Lyndon Diner. Simultaneously, Katie had just moved from southern California to enter her freshman year at Lancaster Bible College. She and some new college friends were eating a late night dinner together when Jeff and his friends entered the diner.  Jeff noticed Katie right away. He slightly knew a few of the individuals at her table, so he decided to sit at her table to introduce himself. The rest, as we say, is history.

In November of 2005, we were engaged over dinner at Duke’s Huntington Beach in Orange County California. We were then married in Lancaster Pennsylvania on March 18, 2006. Our marriage together has been full of many experiences and adventures that has been defined by music scenes, several cross country trips, living in three states, being part of three church plants, launching missional communities and gathering people.

However, some of the overarching themes through our life together has been a deep call to follow the way of Jesus in being intentionally incarnational and missional about neighboring and church community life. We also love gathering people, being in the midst of creativity and exploring new adventures together.

We are currently committed to following Jesus, investing locally in our East Petersburg neighborhood and learning to live simply. We are also both committed to joining the Kingdom of God, as it releases a gospel-fluent missional movement of multiplying Spirit-led disciples, leaders, and faith communities both in our own neighborhood and in various other neighborhood contexts.

We continue to be real people with real struggles, that are hoping to press more into the Holy Spirit for the presence of God and the awareness of God’s reigning Kingdom. In all honesty, we are just two people who are madly in love, are complete opposites, and who drink a lot of coffee to keep up with our three daughters and our hodge-podge of pets.

We love the journey we are on.
