Pastor Deano Pulice

"...my passion in ministry is to preach the Word, win the lost, train the believers, and help one another become fully devoted followers of Christ."

My name is Deano Pulice and I was born February 11, 1957. I grew up in a small town in southwest Pennsylvania called Fairchance and was the youngest of 6 children. Even though my parents were not churchgoers, a neighbor invited me when I was seven years old to attend the Free Methodist Sunday School with his son and took me almost every Sunday during my childhood.

It was in 1978, while attending a summer camp, the evangelist spoke of God’s love and how God loved me just the way I was and stretched out His arms to show me the full extent of His love. That evening I gave my life to Christ and have been a believer ever since.

On August 15, 1981 I married my wife Darlene. She grew up in Uniontown, Pa and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Dental Hygiene. Since that time God has blessed us with 4 beautiful children: Deanna (married to Chris Abram), Christopher, Janelle, and Bethany.

I graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in 1986 with a major in Music and a minor in Biblical Studies. During that time, I received a call to become a minister of Jesus Christ. Over the years I have served in a variety of ways: a youth pastor for two years and an associate pastor for five years at the Brockport Free Methodist Church, a church planter in Bridgeport, WV for three years, a senior pastor in Monaca, PA for eleven years, and an interim pastor in New Castle, PA for two and a half years. In June of 1991, I was ordained as an elder in the Free Methodist Church.

The Lord has blessed me with a love to sing and play the piano, but my passion in ministry is to preach the Word, win the lost, train the believers, and help one another become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Randy has served as Director of Administration for the Genesis and Keystone Conferences and the WAVE since 2006. He has volunteered at Crosspoint FMC on the worship team, technology team, finance team, and pastoral care giving. Both love the Lord and are thankful for this new opportunity to minister and serve. They have 2 grown daughters and 3 grandchildren (who they think are the best grandchildren ever).
