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. Today, there are ten Family Church locations, each set up independently 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
Allegany – Pastor Mike and Courtney Anderson
Mayville– Pastors Jeff and Renée Mitchener
Wellsville– Pastors Ray and Kami Oberst
Victory– Pastor Tim and Penny Pilarski
Starbrick– Pastor Rita and Mike Moniot
Erie– Pastors Tim and Katy Stahlman
Corry– Pastors Jeff and Renée Mitchener
The Family Churches have an important role in an international work in Burgos, Spain, in cooperation with Life of God, International.
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. Currently, there are over 40 students enrolled in a ministry school at Family Church Jamestown. In 2013, Family Church International was established to oversee the development of more churches and training of their leaders.
