ABOUT ADAM

Hi there. I’m Adam Davidson - married to Emily, dad to Lexi, Mac, and Zac.  As the Lead Pastor, my job is to cast vision and teach scripture as I work with our Leadership Team and Lead Staff to carry out our mission, which is to help people to find, follow, and be like Jesus. 

I enjoy coffee, reading, jeeps, vintage boomboxes (80’s) and collecting keys. I’m a musician and have been most of my life. I didn’t get serious about music until my 4th birthday, when my parents gave me a keyboard. From there it’s been a mix of classical, progressive, piano-driven and post-rock. I usually have a song playing in my head, sometimes a hymn or a Led Zepplin riff, or maybe something by Ben Folds.

Our family loves living in Southwest Michigan, from South Haven to downtown Kalamazoo and points in-between. We spend as much time outdoors as we possibly can, often hiking on a trail, biking, swimming, and/or fishing. Our daughter, Lexi, has special needs, and we’ve found this community and our church to be extremely supportive. 

I believe the local church has a responsibility to be the expanding Kingdom of God, marked by holiness, love, justice, mercy, and hope.  By God’s grace, we’re doing our best to be part of what He’s doing in the world.

ABOUT SCOTT

Hello, my name is Scott Osborne. I am both a husband and a father, as well as an outdoorsmen. I lead the junior, senior, and college ministries. Ever since high school I have been passionate about student ministry. I have interned and worked with students ever since then and I continue to be amazed at the passion and inquisitiveness that students have in their faith journey. My goal is to walk I alongside students as they work out their faith, challenging and encouraging them as they go. My greatest joy in ministry is seeing lives be transformed when they meet the truth and love of Jesus.

ABOUT TIFFANY

My name is Tiffany Cronin, but will answer to Mom, and Miss Tiffany. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Marc since 1997. We have added 3 amazing kids to our family; two boys and a girl. Parenting our clan has been the best equipping for children’s ministry! Currently I am going through the process of ordination through the Free Methodist Church, and finishing a degree in Family Life Education through Spring Arbor University. My favorite things to do when I have a free minute include reading, writing, playing board games, camping, beaching, spending time in nature, and experiencing new places. 

I began in children’s ministry in a volunteer capacity in 2000. I have been on staff at pfmchurch since 2008. I love everything about leading in children’s ministry. I am blessed and humbled in my role as children’s pastor. I cherish the opportunity to mentor children and teach them about Jesus. It is equally rewarding to walk alongside other leaders and share what I have learned along the way. One of the most impactful moments in my role has been when a former student asks for a reference as they pursue ministry opportunities as a young adult. It is exciting to see how God uses the gifts and talents of the children that attended kids ministry, for His glory.

ABOUT LYNDA

Lynda Haskins is Director of "GO" at Portage Free Methodist which includes global missions, local missions, and community outreach. Consistent with the mission of our church, she oversees teams of people who are continuously looking for opportunities for church attenders to get involved in making a difference outside the walls of the church. 

Lynda and her husband John have been actively involved at Portage Free Methodist Church for over 25 years. Lynda clearly remembers the call of God upon her life to be Children's Director when their two daughters were just 1 and 4 years old. Since then she has served not only as Children's Director but transitioned into Christian Education Director, Outreach Director and finally into her current ministry area of missions and outreach.

God has placed upon her heart the desire to reach others with the love of Christ and to look for opportunities for the church to be a positive influence in Portage, the surrounding communities, and globally in other countries. 

Personally, Lynda received a Bachelors degree in Science from Michigan State University. Married to John Haskins, together they have 2 daughters and one grandson. Spending time with family is high on the priority list, but, Lynda also enjoys, outdoor activities, exercising, cooking, baking, and cake decorating.

ABOUT MARY

I have been a member here at PFM church for more than 35 years. My husband, Tim, and I were married in this church in 1979 and raised two wonderful children. 

Our children are grown now and we feel blessed that they are both living close by and have Christ-centered families.  We now have four grandchildren. 

I enjoy camping with family and friends, and exercising  at the YMCA. 

I am very excited to be a part of the PFM  support staff working as the Kids Admin, assistant to Pastor Tiffany. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes in putting together a good Children's Program, one that teaches them how to love Jesus and make Him a part of their life. 

Everyday I thank God for the blessings that come with working with the Kids ministry. I also  enjoy watching our church grow and become more visible in our community.

ABOUT SUE

My years as Admin Assistant began in 2007. I’m grateful for God’s perfect timing that  placed me here to serve and to grow. Over the years it has been a privilege to work with people who have a passion for ministry, and care for and respect one another. And, although the staff has changed and grown over the years, these qualities have remained a constant. 

I currently fill the role of Gather Admin, which means I handle everything from Response Cards, Weekly Reports, and scheduling our Greeters to overseeing the upkeep of the Sanctuary and foyer, and filling the role of Wedding Coordinator. I love the interaction with you, the Body of Christ, as you come and go...meeting your needs and hearing your stories. 

My husband Bill and I were high school sweethearts and both made a decision to live our lives for Christ at the age of 18. We got married in 1973 and have since been blessed with two children and six grandchildren. Our son, Rob, and his wife, Meri, have three kids: Elijah, Lily, and Nora. And our daughter, Heidi, and her husband, Jake, have three girls: Ella, Ava, and Lyla.  Our six grands bring much joy to our lives and we are grateful to live near enough to ‘borrow’ any or all of them on a regular basis, allowing us the opportunity to spend intentional time with each of them and to partner with their parents in pointing them toward Christ. 

We began attending PFMC in 1991 as our kids were entering their teens and we have been involved in various ways over the years, since. Bill has served as an Adult CE teacher and previously chaired the Men’s Committee, and I spent many years as co-chair of Women’s Ministries. Together we served with the Discipleship Ministry, an area we are passionate about. 

Bill and I enjoy hitting the road for a weekend in Chicago, a week at Disney, a day spent in South Haven, or just hanging out with the kids and grands. One of our favorite getaways is our annual vacation with the kids and grands, spending a week together renting a house on Lake Michigan. In 2013 we celebrated our 40th Anniversary with a trip to England, Scotland and Wales, and loved it so much that we plan to return following Bill’s retirement in 2017. And beyond? Wherever God leads us!

ABOUT ALEX

Attending PFM since 2010 and part of the staff since 2011, I help guide Sunday morning services behind the scenes. Much of my time is spent managing cables and wires, implementing new technology, and coordinating volunteers. I work with Adam and the Worship Arts team to ensure that the Sunday morning "gather" experience is immersive, inclusive, and inviting.  Sometimes you'll see me up front, but most weeks you won't. 

Married to Becky since 2001, we have 3 amazing kids that challenge us everyday I am daily given the opportunity to be a better husband, father, and servant, I pray that I would rise to the task set before me. I also work full-time with the classroom technology at Kalamazoo College and host a local weekly pub quiz. 

I'll take advantage of every chance I get to be on the water: boating, canoeing, rafting, tubing, or swimming. I also enjoy playing board games, card games, video games, and yard games. My favorite book of the Bible is Philippians.

ABOUT MIKE

I am married to Gail and we are both retired teachers. My job can be difficult to describe, but basically I clean some of the church; in charge of preparing the church for events by setting up tables, chairs and other equipment;

I’m in charge of the general up-keep of the church and report what needs to be fixed to the trustees and oversee the care of the grounds. My hope is that the things I do will make worship a pleasant experience and will allow others more time and ability to use their gifts to help make more disciples of Christ Jesus.
