In 2002, Clancy and his wife, Sandy, moved with their four kids from Wooster, OH, to Marysville to begin a new church plant for the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. This was one small step of faith that God has used to impact the city of Marysville in huge way.
When Clancy came to know the Lord at age 19,
his pastor began to encourage him towards preaching and
pastoring. He soon began his formal training at Cedarville College (B.S.
in Comprehensive Bible), where he met his wife, Sandy, followed by
Grace Theological Seminary (Masters of Divinity). He returned to his hometown of Wooster to serve on the pastoral staff at Wooster Grace. After 10 years on staff and much prayer, Clancy was persuaded by Pastor Ed Jackson from Grace Church Powell to plant a church in Marysville.
Through his years of ministry, Clancy’s passion remains being able to see people learn the gospel – praying a prayer that changes them from the inside out – grow in Christ-like love, then share that hope and love with others. He enjoys creating teams and seeing them be strong in their love, work, and witness. And he enjoys being challenged to use his God-given gifts of leadership, teaching, encouragement, discernment, and hospitality to serve others.
