As a part of the Northway Family for over 30 years, I am so very grateful for Pastor Jay and the step of Faith he and others took to start a community that has made such a difference in my life, my family’s life, and many others. I can only imagine the great JOY he is experiencing with his Savior and SO many others in heaven! May that great hope soothe the grief of his sweet wife and family. Praying for them.

Pastor Jay led me to Jesus in junior high. I learned so much from his teaching and mentorship. Then he opened the door for my first church staff role at North Way out of college. I am so deeply grateful for him and his amazing family.

I saw the email from pastor Dave but didn’t read it until this evening after leaving at home at McIntyre. My heart dropped into my stomach. When I pulled into my parking lot I said a prayer for Carol and the family and thanked God for allowing me to have met his wonderful servant. My life is better for having come to northway and Pastor Jay was the first Pastor I heard
When I got out of my car I saw the most beautiful rainbow in the sky. God answered my prayer.
