ELDERS

Dr. Raymond M. Johnson

Senior Pastor

Bio

Raymond serves as the senior pastor of Christ Church West Chester in West Chester, PA. A Southern Miss graduate, Dr. Johnson holds a M.Div.,Th.M., and Ph.D in New Testament from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. He has taught as an adjunct at Boyce College and Kenya Baptist Theological College.

Rene Rodriguez

Elder

Bio

Raised in West Chester, Rene has been a part of our surrounding community his entire life. He worked as an elementary school teacher for over 30 years before retiring in 2019. Though he attended church for much of his adult life, it wasn’t until after he began attending CCWC that he realized he did not believe the gospel after all. God opened his eyes to his need for a Savior and he was brought from death to eternal life. He and his wife Idalia live in West Chester and enjoy being grandparents and trips to Chincoteague, VA.

Nick Gaetani

Elder

Bio

Although Nick has lived all over Southeastern Pennsylvania, he considers West Chester his adopted hometown. He earned his B.A from York College of Pennsylvania and his M.A. from West Chester University. Though his fields of study were completely unrelated to his career in financial services, he wouldn’t have it any other way, as it was here that he met his wife, Meredith. When not serving God’s church, he enjoys travel, trying new foods, walking around the borough with Meredith, sports (especially soccer and racing), and reading an eclectic mix of books on a number of topics. He also loves meeting new people, so feel free to say hi to him on Sunday mornings.
