Director of Student Ministry

Rodney Bistline

Rodney Bistline grew up in Shippensburg and felt a call to full-time youth ministry through a combination of Bible Quizzing and Punk Rock Music. He and his wife, Jennifer, will have been married 11 years. They have three dynamic children: Rebeeca (age 6), Joel (age 4), and Leanna (age 1). They like to enjoy nature together through hiking and biking, and they also like to get creative with anything from paint to Lego models.

Rodney has been serving in youth ministry for over 15 years, starting as a volunteer at Shippensburg First Church of God shortly after high school. He has earned degrees from Messiah College and Winebrenner Theological Seminary, and has served youth at Cornell Abraxas Youth Center, Mason-Dixon Youth For Christ (Hanover, PA), and most recently at the United Community Church of God in Confluence, PA (Somerset County).
