    Joe cyr

    Since he was a kid in upstate New York, Joe has loved God, people and starting new things. God’s call on Joe’s life led him to the University of Valley Forge where he met and married Abi, and graduated with a BA in Biblical Studies. After ministering on staff at churches in PA and NY, Joe began the L!FE Church adventure in NH.


    Pastor Joe is down-to-earth, super fun, and tender-hearted. He’s a devoted husband, incredible father, and caring pastor. Under his ministry you’ll be loved, encouraged, and inspired to grab hold of God’s best for your life. 


    Pastor Joe is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God.

    abi cyr

    As far back as she can remember, Abi's heart has been for others to experience Jesus. Being born in England and living in a sprinkling of states has given Abi a unique perspective and desire to connect with people from all walks of life. At the University of Valley Forge, she met and married Joe, and received her degree in education.  


    Pastor Abi is fun, insightful and creative. She loves being Joe’s wife and partner in ministry and adores their six amazing children -Adalia, Chloe, Gideon, Keziah, Thaddaeus, and Michael.  Under her ministry, you’ll be encouraged to trust God for restoration, freedom and fullness of life. Her first book is Everyday, Ordinary Life.
