Senior Pastor- JR Lightstein
Phone: 631-265-2141 Ext 203
My wife Carrie and I have been married for 22 years and we have been blessed with 4 beautiful children (3 boys- Nate, Jeb, Zach and our daughter is Trinity). In 2008 I answered God’s call into full-time ministry and in 2017 I answered the call to become the new Senior Pastor here at Nesconset Christian Church. Prior to joining NCC, I ministered at Midland Christian Church in Midland, Michigan for 9 years and altogether we were members for nearly 20 years. We are excited for this new chapter in our lives here on Long Island!
My deepest desire is for the members of NCC to live lives of freedom together in Jesus Christ. As we live lives that reflect the Son, people will be drawn to our church. As people are drawn to our church, they will hear the life changing message of Jesus Christ. I am sold-out in my commitment to Jesus and His Holy Word. I consider it the greatest privilege, honor and blessing to serve my family here at Nesconset Christian Church.
