The Family Churches began in Fredonia, New York under the ministry of Rev. Michael Lokietek. As the Fredonia church grew, Rev. Lokietek felt a call from God to begin to plant churches throughout the northeast region of the United States through an organization founded as Family Church International. Today, there are ten Family Church locations, each set up with full time pastors:

New York Churches

Fredonia– Pastors Michael and Nancy Lokietek

Jamestown– Pastors Tim and Katy Stahlman

South Dayton– Pastor Mike and Courtney Anderson

Olean– Pastor Mike and Courtney Anderson

Mayville– Pastors Jeff and Renee Mitchener

Tonawanda– Pastors Chris and Chrystal Herman

Ripley – Pastor Tim and Penny Pilarski

Wellsville – Pastors Ray and Kami Oberst

Pennsylvania Churches

Starbrick– Pastor Rita and Mike Moniot

Erie – Pastors Tim and Katy Stahlman


Additionally, the Family Churches support an international work in Burgos, Spain headed up by Revs. Rich and Daphne Walker.

Our Vision

It is the heart of Rev. Lokietek, and all the Family Church pastors, to see the Bible taught to this region in a way that brings light and revelation to everyone.
