Pastor Richard Weitzel
Pastor Richard and his family moved to Lebanon in 2000, when they began attending Living Waters Chapel. He joined our staff in January of 2019. Richard sensed God’s call to vocational ministry at the age of 21 so he completed his undergraduate studies at Southeastern University in 1981 and graduate work at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 1986. He then served in pastoral ministry for 16 years in New England before returning to Pennsylvania. For 19 years Richard served in various roles at Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge. His mission in ministry is Biblical study, teaching, and encouraging others in their personal journey of faith in Christ.
His wife, Donna, is a registered nurse, and they were married in 1984. The Weitzels have three adult children: Richie, Hans, and Callie. Their oldest and youngest have married; Richie and Jennifer have given them three beautiful granddaughters. They enjoy time and activities with their family, traveling, and being outdoors, especially in warmer weather. Pastor Rich also enjoys gardening and feels closest to God in the outdoors.
Pastor Melody Good
Pastor Melody has been a part of the Living Waters Chapel (LWC) family since 1997, and officially joined the staff in March 2022. She is passionate about leading the congregation in a lifestyle of praise, believing that it is a powerful weapon against temptation, discouragement, and distractions. When she isn't leading worship, Melody enjoys biking, traveling, playing the harp, gardening, and spending time with her grandchildren. She is an energetic, positive, and upbeat individual, but also has a kind and encouraging heart for those who are discouraged.

Together, their heart is for creating memorable experiences with teenagers, encouraging them in life, and seeing them grow spiritually.
