John Horst

John has been living in the Washington, DC area for many years. He came to Maryland to attend the University of Maryland - College Park in 1973 because his piano teacher in Pennsylvania said that Maryland had a great piano department. He met his wife-to-be, Jan, in a music theory class.  It was quite a bit later that they met again and married, but that was after John came to believe in Jesus and trust His word, the Bible. He is still learning and growing as he reads, meditates on, and puts into practice this marvelous book-of-books! This same book says of itself (in 1 Thessalonians 2:13) "when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe."

Gregg Moore

Gregg has been a Ruling Elder at Mt. Airy Presbyterian Church since 1995. He was part of the original church plant core team and previously served as a Deacon from 1989-1995. Gregg has been married to Patricia (Pat) since 1980. They have four grown children and six grandchildren. For fun he plays (or tries to) both the electric and acoustic guitar. He also enjoys doing various projects around the house. The Lord saved Gregg through Young Life when he was 16 years old at a camp in upstate New York. He has a degree in Information Systems Management and works as a Project IT Team Lead for a large Engineering Construction company.
