"Therefore, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure, for if you do these things, you shall never fall." 2 Thess. 1:11 also says, " With this in mind, I constantly pray for you that our God may count you worthy of His calling, and that by His power He may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith." - 2 Peter 1:10
Pastor Bryan and Michelle Kenville have enjoyed over 25 incredible years of ministry together. Pastor Bryan was born in Caledonia, a small town outside of Rochester, New York while Michelle grew up in Fluishing, Queens. They both attended the University of Rochester, where they met one another and came into a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. According to Pastor Bryan, "the two best things that ever happened to me, happened on that university campus!" The Lord has given them a passion to reach the generations for Christ, both in their local community and beyond, reaching to the nations of the world. They share a love for worship, hearing God's voice and discipling people. They believe that God has exciting days in store for Believers Chapel North and they are convinved that he has brought them here for such a time as this, to be a part of a fast approaching revival.

1 Timothy 3:1-7
"It is a true saying that if someone wants to be an elder, he desires an honorable responsibility. For an elder must be a man whose life cannot be spoken against. He must be faithful to his wife. He must exhibit self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation. He must enjoy having guests in his home and must be able to teach. He must not be a heavy drinker or be violent. He must be gentle, peace loving, and not one who loves money. He must manage his own family well, with children who respect and obey him. For if a man cannot manage his own household, how can he take care of God's church?
An elder must not be a new Christian, because he might be proud of being chosen so soon, and the devil will use that pride to make him fall. Also, people outside the church must speak well of him so that he will not fall into the devil's trap and be disgraced."
“I was installed as an Elder in May of 2022. As an Elder, I feel responsible to the members of BCN to oversee the activities of the church, help teach Biblical truth, lead with confidence and help the Senior Pastor.
I am a shop teacher at Altmar Parish Williamstown Central Junior Senior High School, along with being the NASP archery coach and varsity soccer and softball coach. My wife, Jill, is an elementary school teacher at APW along with overseeing BCN's Children's Ministry. We have three wonderful daughers. Our oldest is married to a Christ loving man. Our middle daughter is in college and our youngest is still in high school. They all attend BCN.
“I’ve been an Elder at Believers Chapel North since 2013, during which I also spent a period of time as Youth Pastor. I see my role now as assisting and supporting the Senior Pastor in ministering to the congregation of BCN, as well discipleship on a personal level with members of the church.
I am a co-owner and Projects Administrator for Marcellus Construction Inc. My wife, Ashleigh and I love living in Mexico, where I grew up attending BCN. We have three of the sweetest, spunkiest daughters, Aveline, Eliana and Ivy.”
“I was installed as an Elder at BCN in March of 2006. My wife, Peggy and I see our role as just loving on and serving the body of Christ, empowering the church to fulfill its mission. BCN is a special place for us, we came here looking for a biblically solid church that preached the gospel… and have never looked back.
I’ve lived in Central NY all my life. I grew up in Liverpool and moved to Oswego County after marrying Peggy. I attended a Christian College in Arkansas for two years before coming home to finish at Oswego State (which I never did.) I am President and Operations Director for Syracuse Utilities, Inc. Our two daughters graduated from Mexico Academy and live on their own.”
