Jeremiah Ketchum-Senior Pastor

I have had the privilege of living in Clare since 2009 and serving as Senior Pastor of BCC since 2014. My wife, Elisa, and I have been married since 2000 and have four boys: Kaleb, Jaden, Neiko and Owen. I like to read (a lot), drink coffee the consistency of used motor oil (a lot of it), eat ice cream (more than I should), baseball, explore new places with my family and play a round of golf here and there. I love my wife, my kids, my church and more than anything, my God.


Previously, we served with New Tribes Mission and with two other churches in the Michigan area.


Some of the books and people who have influenced me the most include: J.I. Packer, John Piper, John Owen, Jerry Bridges, Hudson Taylor, George Dagley, Dick Cross, William Carey, Jim Elliot, Alistair Begg, Gary Coombs, Wayne Grudem, and Charles Spurgeon.

Steve evans-children's ministry pastor

I grew up in Western Pennsylvania before attending Huntington University. I graduated Huntington in 1995 with a degree in Educational Ministries. I started at BCC in November of 1995 as Youth Pastor. In September of 2015 I became the Children's Pastor. I married my wife, Jessica, in July of 2008. In May of 2010 we had our first child, Sarah. In May of 2013 we had our second child, Ben. In December of 2014 we were blessed with our 3rd child, Joseph. God called me to Ministry when I was 13. I have a passion for working with youth and teaching them about God. I love watching kids and teens begin a relationship with God and hunger for His direction in their life.

I joined our staff as our Youth Ministry Intern in the Fall of 2017.  I grew up attending BCC, but in 2014, he moved away while he spent some time working in camping ministry.  Currently I'm attending Eastern University working towards obtaining a Bachelor's Degree in Youth Ministry Leadership.  During my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, playing basketball, and watching football with my dog, Bo.

Karen crook-administrative assistant

Hi, I am Karen Crook, the administrative assistant for Brown Corners Church.  I am originally from Waterford, Michigan but spent every summer on Lake 13 in Farwell.  After deciding to make Farwell my permanent home, I began searching for a church.  It became apparent in February 2014 that Brown Corners Church would become my home church.  


Paul and I were married in 1988.   Between us, we have four children: Brian (Kasey), John (Elizabeth), Kris, and Melissa.   We have four grandsons;  Ethan, Jayden, Sterling, and Jameson.  We have two granddaughters; Mila and Calliope.  


I enjoy almost any activity on or around the lake.  I also enjoy genealogy, reading, watching football and basketball.

rob nix-facilities & maintenance

My name is Rob Nix and I'm married with 3 boys. My wife and I are relatively new Christians and the magnificent ride that it has been right from the moment that we found Christ cannot be explained.
I was in the U.S. Army and after my return I worked in EMS, during this time I met my wife and her two young boys. The lord was working when the positon that I now hold became available, everything just came together and fit just like pieces to a puzzle.
I never thought I would be working in this capacity however having the knowledge that I recieved and continue to gain in this position has been invaluable for me now and in whatever the future holds.
For I don't just clean a church on Clare Ave, but I maintain
.. THE LORDS HOUSE..
                                   "For I know the plans I have for you, plans
                                    to prosper you and not to harm you, plans
                                    to give you hope and a future"
                                                  Jeremiah 29:11(NIV)
