MBC Leadership proclaiming the salvation of Christ and Him Crucified

Millgrove Bible Church is pleased to present
Reverend Joshua Vogt as our pastor.

Pastor Josh and his wife Alicia, along with their five children: Adeline, Ella, Caleb, Benjamin, and CharlotteGrace; are now calling Alden, NY home.

Pastor Josh began his ministry in 2007. He served his first church, Bible Baptist Church in Lake Katrine, New York, during a difficult time of transition; through the grace of God, he was able to help them through that time and lay the foundation for a time of peace and tremendous ministry for their future.

After serving at Lake Katrine, Pastor Josh and his family moved to Arkansas. During his three years there, Pastor Josh served in a variety of ministry positions, many of them concurrently. He served as pastor to Midway Baptist Church in Palestine, Arkansas leading the church towards spiritual health and discipleship training for both youth and adults. He also served as the youth pastor at Earle Baptist Church in Earle, Arkansas, where he focused on creating a new children's and youth ministry there. In addition to pastoring churches in Arkansas, Pastor Josh also had the privilege of teaching at two different Christian High Schools: Calvary Christian School and Caldwell Christian Academy. He taught Bible at both schools and served as the Dean of Students at the latter. All of these ministry experiences combine to give Pastor Josh communication skills with both young and old, from the pulpit and in the classroom.

Pastor Josh was raised and educated in New York. He received his BRE from Practical Bible College (now called Davis College) in Johnson City, NY, and his MDiv from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in Schenectady, NY. After a three year period of ministry in Arkansas, God has called him back to this area. He served Millgrove as interim pastor from September 2012 to December of 2013, when he was brought on as full-time pastor. Druing that time, he also served as adjunct professor of biblical studies at Northeastern Baptist College. His credentials prove him to be a godly leader who is able to connect with all ages, from youth to seniors. He is a gifted teacher and preacher, as well as a dynamic communicator who preaches expository sermons that are strong in theology, illustration, and relevant applications. Although he ministers outside the box, he is very conservative in his theology.

Millgrove Bible Church would like to invite you to hear Pastor Vogt and join us on Sunday Mornings for a 9:30 AM worship service. MBC has a 15 minute coffee & dessert time following the morning worship service for fellowship.

Our Sunday school programs for adults begin at 11:10 AM with a Bible study group atmosphere. For babies and toddlers, MBC has a loving nursery open during service and Sunday school hours. During Sunday morning worship service, MBC offers a Children's and a Junior Church service downstairs featuring new curriculum and dynamic children's ministries leaders.

Our Middle and High school students in grades seven through grade twelve have Sunday school from 11:10 AM to 12:00 PM. MBC is currently restructuring our teen youth group activities, and will announce the changes soon. Join us Sunday evenings for worship service at 6:00 PM, and Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM for our weekly prayer meeting.

MBC offers a clothing ministry and a food pantry open to the public once a month. Contact our church secretary with any questions at 716-937-7926 or visit our website at millgrovebiblechurch.org. Stop by and help us warmly welcome Pastor Joshua Vogt and his family to our church and community.
