Pastoral Staff

Pastor John, Jennifer and Sarah Tether
Tether Family

Pastor John and Jennifer Tether are high school sweethearts who came to Christ in 1990, after their freshman year of college. They married in 1993 and immediately began serving as the teen pastors at Christian Faith Fellowship in Middletown, NY. In 2000 they were blessed with the birth of their beautiful and God-honoring daughter, Sarah. Together they founded Northway in 2002, following the example of the Biblical husband and wife team of Priscilla and Aquila (Acts 18, Romans 16:3-5). Today they are enjoying the adventure of leading God’s people to experience all Jesus died to give them.
