Duane Farley was born and raised in Canton, Ohio. During his high school years, the Lord kindled a desire in him for pastoral ministry which led to pursuing and earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biblical and theological studies. During this time of training (1994-2001), Duane met and married his wife Mary.
After Duane served as an assistant pastor from 2001-2004 in West Hartford, CT, the Farleys moved to Louisville, KY where Duane earned his Master of Divinity degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. In 2007, the Lord guided the Farleys to minister in New England and specifically at Calvary Baptist Church in Windsor Locks, CT. Duane has also earned a Th.M. degree in historical theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
Pastor Duane’s life and ministry passion is to experience and lead others into the delight of gospel-driven living. Also, he enjoys spending time with his family, reading Christian biographies and church history, traveling, and following college football. He and Mary are blessed with five children: Elizabeth, Hudson, Jonathan, Katie, and Christiana.
Pastor Scott Chesebrough grew up in Southern Maine. Through the influence of godly parents and a loving church family that preached God’s Word, he repented of his sin and trusted Christ as his Savior when he was 11 years old.
When he was 19, Pastor Scott enrolled at a Christian University in South Carolina to train for the Gospel ministry. He completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible in the spring of 2003. Understanding the immense responsibility of accurately preaching God’s Word and lovingly serving His people, Pastor Scott continued his education in seminary where he completed a Master of Arts degree in Teaching Bible in the spring of 2005 and a Master of Divinity degree in the spring of 2008. While studying for the ministry, Pastor Scott and his wife, Karen, were actively involved in their local church. After completing his degrees, Pastor Scott served as a pastoral intern in their local church before moving back to New England.
