Mark Habecker

Senior Pastor

I have been serving in pastoral ministry for over 25 years, first in a church in North Carolina and then for 15 years at a church in southeastern Virginia. Coming to Word of Life Chapel in 2014 was “coming home” for me since I began attending here at age 1. I was discipled through the exciting youth ministry here at WOLC and began serving as a part-time assistant before being called into full-time ministry. What a blessing it is to be serving in the church that has had such an impact in my spiritual growth and life. My wife Deb is my closest friend and my partner in hiking, kayaking and bicycling. Deb and I have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and a beautiful granddaughter. 

Katie Aungst

Director of Children's Ministry

I am not originally from this area (born in Annapolis, MD), but have enjoyed putting down roots here in Lancaster county.  I have been attending WOLC for the past 16 years and it is exciting to serve part time as the director of children’s ministry. I love to see kids learning the truths of who God is and experiencing the love and care  of Jesus through this local body of believers.  My background is in elementary education, but for the past 12 years, I’ve been at home with my 3 kids, which has been a huge blessing!  I have a passion to see young people become disciples of Jesus, as they trust in Him and learn what it means to follow Him for the rest of their lives.  I enjoy reading, cooking, exercising, the outdoors and ice cream.  I love Jesus and His church– walking with Him is, by far, the greatest joy of my life.
