Our staff


  • Tom Stroup

    Interim  Pastor

                    Tom grew up in central Pennsylvania.  At the age of 20 he discovered how much God loved him and accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior.  Later that summer he sensed God’s call to ministry.

                    He graduated from Penn Wesleyan College in Allentown, Pa and received a Master of Divinity Degree from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky.

                    He retired in January 2014 after serving as Senior Pastor in the Brockport Free Methodist Church for 36 years.

    “It’s my privilege to come alongside of the AFMC family.  We are not simply marking time here as we anticipate the appointment of a new Pastor…we are daily moving forward




  • Dee Hansel

    CMC, Assistant to the Pastor and Children's Pastor

    I was born and raised right here in Albion and never had the urge to leave. I love it here, this is home. I live with my husband and two little dogs Mia and Finn. Al and I have three grown children and three amazing grandchildren. I felt my call to ministry later in life after many years in banking. I am presently a Conference Ministerial Candidate and I am attending Northeastern Seminary at Roberts Wesleyan College as I work toward ordination. In my spare time I love to travel (mostly to Disney with my grandchildren), read and bake.

  • Kyle Holz

    Director of Media & tech/ Youth group leader

    I've been attending AFMC for many years and volunteered in different ways.  Little did I know, God would be preparing me for a call to ministry.  I have a passion for technology, and using technology the right way to expand God's kingdom. This call has also gotten me involved with the Youth.  Combining the two has been an amazing journey. I feel Gods call in my life to plant seeds with the youth and other's through technology, such as the live stream.  I have a wife and two kids, who all share a love for youth and our church! I also own an ice cream business! :)


    I am also an LMC Candidate for the Free Methodist Church.
