meet our leaders

Jason Van Bemmel serves as the pastor of Forest Hill Presbyterian Church. He and his wife, Beth, have been married for 19 years and they have three children, two boys and a girl. Jason is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary, Washington, DC (2009). He previously served as the Head of School for New Covenant Christian School and as the pastor of Faith Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Cheraw, SC. The Van Bemmels lived in Harford County from 1998 until 2011, before moving south for 4 years and returning in 2015. Pastor Jason and his family love good books, good food and spending time together (especially outdoors). Pastor Jason loves preaching and teaching God's Word and is excited and humbled to serve Forest Hill Presbyterian Church as her pastor.


In addition to Pastor Jason, Forest Hill Presbyterian Church is led by three ruling elders: Matt Miller, Ernie Bruff and Tim Wilson and we're served by five deacons, Gary Gaesser, Larry Comes, Joel Raiber, Bob Trammell and Shawn Trautman.
