We are the neighborhood church and school of the Hampton Heights Neighborhood. We are transforming lives, families and the community with the forgiveness & love of Christ!
God has blessed us at the Mount with ministry team that loves Jesus and wants to share him with you. Get to know them below: Pastor Nate Bourman and Staff Minister Michael Schuessler.
Pastor Nate Bourman
There are a lot of things that I could and will tell you about myself, but I’m not sure they help you know who I really am.
I could tell you that I've been a pastor at the Mount since April of 2018. I could tell that I really enjoy working out. I could tell you that I've been married to my sweetheart, Ruth, since 2002 and that God has blessed us with five children.
I could tell you that as a pastor some of my favorite moments happen at coffee shops over a cup of coffee, God’s Word and prayer. I could tell you about some of my favorite things about being a pastor, but that’s not who I really I am.
If you want to know who I really am, you have to listen to my Grandpa Monthie. He wrote a poem about me when I was born. It goes something like this: What’s he gonna be? A preacher, a teacher, a farmer just like me? What’s he gonna be? We’ll have to wait and see. What’s he gonna be? I’ll tell you, a Christian, just like you and me.
That’s who I am. I am a child of God, adopted by my baptism, cleansed in his blood. That’s who I really am.
And what do I want? I want to share Jesus with you. I'll bend over backwards and do whatever it takes so that I can share Jesus wherever you're at in life. He is the world's Savior - mine and yours. And I want you to know it, believe it, and then live it. I want this truth to change and transform you.
That's my prayer for you, for this church, for this community.

Staff Minister Michael Schuessler
For most of his career, “Minister Mike” worked in business and industry so he can relate to people in all walks of life. In 2012 he was called as Staff Minister of Outreach at Mt. Lebanon. What he enjoys more than anything else is the opportunity to visit with people, listen to their story and share God’s love for them in Jesus Christ.
As Staff Minister, Mike shares devotions with our Food Pantry guests, leads the Monday Night Support Group, teaches Bible Information classes for prospective members, leads our Men’s Ministry Team, visits shut-ins and does just about anything else that would help people learn more about God’s plan of salvation.
Mike has been married to Kathryn for 47 years. He has three married children and nine grandchildren. In his spare time he likes to read, play golf, and spend time with his family.
