Jeff C. has been a ruling elder at Mount Airy Presbyterian Church since 2005. He teaches math, science, and robotics at a local Christian school and the middle school Sunday School at Mount Airy Presbyterian Church. He is interested in the study of theology, insects, mathematics, and enjoys spending time with his wife Colleen, and their two daughters.


John H. has been living in the Washington, DC area for many years. He came to Maryland to attend the University of Maryland - College Park in the early 1970s because his piano teacher in Pennsylvania said that Maryland had a great piano department. He met his wife-to-be, Jan, in a music theory class. It was quite a bit later that they met again and married, but that was after John came to believe in Jesus and trust His word, the Bible. He is still learning and growing as he reads, meditates on, and puts into practice this marvelous book-of-books! This same book says of itself (in 1 Thessalonians 2:13) "when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe."


Gregg M. has been a Ruling Elder at Mount Airy Presbyterian Church since 1995. He was part of the original church plant core team and previously served as a Deacon from 1989-1995. Gregg has been married to Patricia (Pat) since 1980. They have four grown children and seven grandchildren. He enjoys doing various projects around the house. The Lord saved Gregg through Young Life when he was 16 years old at a camp in upstate New York. He has a degree in Information Systems Management.


Mike Z, was raised in a Christian home where he attended an Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) through his childhood and committed his life to Christ at the age of 15. He has been in the PCA since 1980, where he has served as an Elder for the past 25 years. Mike and his wife Martha have been attending Mount Airy Presbyterian Church since 2005. They are blessed with three grown children and two grandchildren. Mike works in the aerospace industry as a Systems Engineer and Project Manager. He is a founder of a local Christian school and serves as Chairman of the School Board. His hobbies include reading, investing, canoeing, and hanging out with his family.


Drew J. became a Christian in the early 1970s during the "Jesus Movement" when the idea of becoming a Presbyterian Elder seemed as likely as becoming a giraffe.  Now, as an elder in both senses of the word, he is honored to serve Mount Airy Presbyterian church in a vareity of roles.  He is also a half-retired aerospace engineer and half-active author. He is married to a poet and has two daughters still on earth and a son who now joyfully resides with his savior.
