  • Chris DiVietro

    Senior Pastor

    Chris was raised in southern New Jersey and attended Allegheny College where he met his wife, Liz. Chris and Liz have been married for over 10 years and have three children: Aletheia, Judah, and Evangeline; they have four, if you include their yellow lab Samson. Chris is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary and has his Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership from Johnson University. The DiVietros like to hike, garden, watch sports, and read.

  • Drew Thomas

    Assistant Pastor for Students and Family Outreach

    A Berks native, Drew has been married to his wonderful wife Hanna for the past 13 years. He has three amazing, energetic little girls. Zoe 8, Aria 4, and Nikea 3. He graduated from Muhlenberg HS in 2002. In his spare time, Drew enjoys watching the Eagles, working out, playing sports (yes, corn hole is a sport), coaching his daughters' teams, traveling, and reading theological books.

     

    As a teenager Drew went far away from the Lord and greatly abused drugs and alcohol. After getting into some trouble, God grabbed a hold of his life and saved him. When he surrendered to Christ and asked God to change his sinful lifestyle and to help him live for the Lord, God began a great transformation in Him. Shortly after coming to Christ Drew sensed a deep desire and call to ministry. He has been to over 12 countries preaching the gospel, teaching in Bible schools and serving the Lord in various pastoral roles and ministries. He is still pursuing God purposes for his life by attending Reformed Theological Seminary. Drew feels very blessed to be a part of the Park Road family and is excited for all that God is doing here!
