Our team members have a God led testimony of how they were called to minister in Albion
Pastor Mike Outten
Pastor Mike Outten
Mike is a native of Western New York and grew up in the Clarence NY area. He married the love of his life (Barb McCollum) in Gasport NY. Mike has grown up in the business world first as a bricklayer turned general contractor, and his entrepreneurial spirit led him to start other businesses over the years. Mike has felt God leading him to plant a church since 2011, but the location of where to plant was unclear until God directed his path to Albion NY where he has been ministering with his family since August 2015.
Mike is a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and preaches and teaches God’s Word with all his heart and soul for the glory of God. His desire is to be deeply involved with the community of Albion and see it change into a place where love always wins and hope is realized. A place where families can grow and experience community together.
Mike and Barb have 6 children; Jessica 31, Adam 25, Abram 23, Timothy 20, Sarah 15, and Melissa 10. They also have 6 grandchildren. Mike and Barb love families of any size and stress that family is where our hope is lived out day by day as we serve Jesus in the home and church, because Jesus Christ is the only hope for our families.
Pastor Mike Outten
Al and Sarah have been married since 2002 and have seven children. Al is originally from Buffalo NY and they currently live in Sarah’s hometown of Barker New York. They run a heavy equipment parts business out of Newfane.
The Alexanders love children and have worked with youth for 20 years. They began as children themselves and have good memories, so that they can use their experiences and godly wisdom to guide the youth to not act like Al did as a teen, but instead follow the right path. Sarah sings with the North Point worship team and has been blessed to be involved with music for most of her life while Al runs the worship service presentation on the computer cause he can’t sing without making people cringe.
They were called by God in 2015 to join the North Point church plant with a willing heart to help the families of Albion know the Love of Christ. Bottom line is they are average sinners serving an awesome God. (The average comes from Al being a really big sinner and Sarah being a below average sinner…Al is very blessed to have married well).
Ridgewood Bible Church
Ridgewood Bible Church has been very instrumental in the foundational principles in which we have built North Point Chapel. We are thankful for their gracious generosity.
High Point Community Bible
High Point Community Bible has been a very gracious supporter of our work in Albion, and was the inspiration of reaching this community for Christ.
Life Point Chapel – Liberia
Life Point Chapel is our first mission/partner to be supported by North Point Chapel. We are truly excited to partner and work together with this WOL ministry in the African continent. Liberia is a country that is in great need of the Gospel and it is our great privilege to work with missionaries Dave and Lucy Kiamu.
Care Net of Albion
Care Net of Albion was one of our first connections when starting our church here in Albion. We love what they stand for and it is our wonderful privilege to partner with them as they reach out to expectant moms and give services such as ultrasound and parenting classes.
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
