Shane Wilt - Senior Pastor
Serving as Senior Pastor since January 2000.
Shane is a native of Charles Town, West Virginia. He holds an associate’s degree in communications from Frederick Community College and a bachelor’s degree in Bible from Lancaster Bible College.
All through college, Shane had a heart for sports and dreamed of becoming a radio or television broadcaster; however, the Lord had different plans for him. While he was a senior at Lancaster Bible College, he felt the Lord calling him into ministry, thus changing the course of his life forever. Six months before graduating from Lancaster Bible College on February 28, 1999, he was called to serve as interim pastor at West End Baptist Chapel. By January 2000, Shane was asked to come on staff and lead the church full-time.
Sports has always been a huge part of Shane’s life. He enjoys golfing, racing (his dad was a race car driver), and has even done race track announcing. Football season is always a highlight for him, especially when the Dallas Cowboys are playing (but we don’t hold that against him).
His life verse: “…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6 NIV
Matt Shoemaker - Assistant to the Pastor
Matt Shoemaker joined the staff in early 2018. Matt is a graduate of Antietam Bible College where he received a degree in Pastoral Studies and Theology. He was ordained in February of 2013, and has spent 15 years in Youth Ministry. He has been married to his wife Angie for 19 years and they have two beautiful children, Sierra and Logan. His favorite Bible verse is Psalm 51. He enjoys The Newsboys and LOVES the Philadelphia Eagles.
