Our Staff

Lead Pastor

Rev. Tim Connor

  

Youth Director

Stacy Hall has been serving as the Youth Director at OCCA since 2008, but has served within our youth ministry in other capacities for the past 15 years.  She also previously worked with youth in the Rockland United Methodist Church in Kennerdell, PA, as well as volunteering with Venango Youth for Christ.  Stacy has a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education with a specialization in Community Programs for Americans with Disabilities from Slippery Rock University.  She worked with children, youth, and adults for 16 years in various community agencies before leaving the field in 2012 to pursue full-time ministry. 

Stacy currently works as the JV Ministry Assistant with Venango Youth for Christ and is enrolled as a student in the Pennsylvania Bible Institute.  This program is a Western PA District satellite program of the Ministerial Studies Program through the National office of the Christian & Missionary Alliance.  She also serves on the District Youth Commission as the Connections Coordinator for the Western PA District of the C&MA. 

Stacy has been known to say that some of her favorite people on the planet to hang out with are teenagers.  She loves to go to their sporting events and school plays -- often cheering the loudest!  She thinks that going on road trips with teenagers is a blast and has some pretty hilarious stories about some of those treks.  At any given time, you will hear her listening to music that ranges from Kari Jobe to Hillsong United to U2 to Lecrae.  She is passionate about seeing teenagers come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and rising up to fulfill the roles that God has called them to.  Her heart's motto can be found in the lines of the song Hosanna by Brooke Fraser... “...break my heart for what breaks yours, everything I am for Your Kingdom's cause...”.  


 

Worship Leader

Mark Witmer has lived in Oil City his whole life and graduated from Oil City High School in 1983.  He first became interested in worship in the late 1970’s through his cousin, who played the guitar and sang worship choruses at the church where Mark’s dad pastored.  That inspired Mark to begin playing the guitar. 
 
Mark met his wife Phyllis in 1983 when she started singing in a band he was a part of.  They married in 1987. Mark played with The Christian Folk for several years and the Galloway Praise Team.  He was also a worship leader at another local church for four years.  Mark is very happy to be a part of OCCA and says that the church is a great blessing to both Phyllis and him.
