Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. - Acts 20:28

Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. - Acts 6:3

 

Windsor Christian Fellowship is led and served by biblically-qualified and gifted men who have been affirmed to their respective offices in our church by our church (Titus 1; 1 Timothy 3). As God continues to grow our church, we trust that he will also continue to add more men to this group of elders and deacons.

To contact our elders or deacons, you may do so by emailing elders@wcfmaine.org and deacons@wcfmaine.org.

 

Brandon believed in Christ as a child and counts it a privilege to have grown up in a Christian family. As a teenager, the Lord gave him the desire to pursue the ministry. He followed that calling, in part, by graduating from Bible college and participating in several church internships. He also is enrolled in seminary in order to continue sharpening and developing his understanding of God's Word. 

While in college, Brandon met his wife, Bethany, and they were married in October 2011. In May 2013, the Dyer’s were blessed with a daughter they named Nora. Another daughter, named Laurel, was born to them in March of 2017. Most recently, in July of 2019, the Dyer's welcomed a new baby boy named Reid. 

Brandon became the interim pastor of WCF in June of 2014 and was installed as pastor in November of the same year. He is privileged and humbled at the responsibility of sharing in the leadership of our church. 

 

As a Rhode Island native, Brandon enjoys all things New England sports. His personal interests and hobbies can basically be summed up in two things: hunting and woodworking.

To contact Pastor Brandon directly, email pastor@wcfmaine.org.

MIKE SHERMAN

ELDER

 

Mike grew up in a Christian home with a dad who was a pastor for over 30 years. Mike believed in Christ at a young age, and God has been faithful to steadily grow Mike’s faith through the years.

He met his wife, Naomi, at church as kids and were married in 2005 in the church they grew up in.  In 2011, God blessed Mike and Naomi with their daughter, Miriam, and in 2014, God blessed them with a son, Henry.

Mike and Naomi are originally from Denver, Colorado and moved to Maine in the fall of 2015. Windsor Christian Fellowship was the first church they visited.  They fell in love with the people and felt they had found a church home and family from that very first Sunday.

Mike felt the Lord’s calling to be involved in church leadership for several years leading up to moving to Maine.  Once at WCF, Mike felt God’s strong calling to be involved in leadership at the church.  Over the majority of 2016, Mike pursued and trained for an eldership position with Pastor Brandon, and in January 2017 Mike was affirmed as an elder.

Mike enjoys watching most sports, playing golf, target shooting, and woodworking.  Mike and his family also purchased a house on 26 acres, a major change from their former suburban lifestyle, and they are all enjoying learning the country way of life.

MATT PAYSON

ELDER

 

Matt is grateful to have grown up in a Christian family and to have believed, by God's grace, at a young age. Looking back at his younger years, he is especially grateful for how God graciously causes His saints to persevere.

Matt and his wife Erin were born and raised in the same small town in Maine and had some interaction as children, but after living in distant corners of the country for several years, God providentially returned them both to Maine in 2009 and were reacquainted shortly thereafter. They were married in 2010 and were blessed with their son, Henry, in 2012 and their daughter, Elsy, in 2014.

 

Matt and his family began attending WCF in the spring of 2018 and immediately felt at home with the church family here. They became members in August of that same year, and Matt began elder training the following summer and was affirmed as an elder in January of 2021. 

 

Matt, for some mysterious reason, enjoys endurance activities such as running and cycling. If time and the seasons allow, he's very happy to find himself located on a golf course or ski slope as well. When it's all said and done, however, he's not opposed to sitting down with a good book and a cup of coffee.
