Pastor John and Jan Seyboth

God has given Pastor John a heart for the people of God that gather in small rural churches.  After attending Practical Bible Training School and Rochester Institute of Christian Education,  he ministered for 15 years in various teaching and elder roles. For the next 20 years he assisted small churches as pulpit supply, interim pastor and bi-vocational pastor throughout western New York. He retired from Eastman Kodak in 2004 after 23 years, having worked as a master electrician and electrical instructor. Since 2005, he has served as the full-time pastor at WBC.

John has been happily married to Jan for over 50 years. They have three children: Jill, Joshua and Jay and have five grandchildren. John and Jan are involved in the community through softball leagues and senior citizen activities. They especially enjoy quiet-water kayaking.
