Pastor Don Meckley


Hi, my name is Don Meckley. My wife Lisa and I are here to serve the Lord through the Ministries of Emmanuel Community Church in Bayville of Ocean County, New Jersey.

We are both graduates of Liberty University. Lisa is a native of Dundalk, Baltimore County, MD. My hometown is Altoona in Blair County, Central Pennsylvania.

We have two children. Our Daughter, Ashley and her husband Hunter live in Lynchburg, VA. Ashley works for Heritage Baptist Church and Hunter works for Liberty Online. Our Son, Patrick & Kati his wife, and their son reside in Richmond, VA. Patrick works for Samsung and serves as a First Lieutenant in the Army National Guard. And Kati works for the YMCA.

We have lived in New Jersey for 19 years and look forward to the opportunities of each day to let the glory of the Lord rise among us!


We invite you to become familiar with the work God is doing in and through this fellowship of believers that we refer to as our “Faith Family”. If you are looking for a place to grow in faith and fellowship, please consider any of our gathering times.

Favorite things on earth :

My wife, my cats, animals, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the New England Patriots, eating food, breathing, watching videos of kittens, making nachos, being alive.

How long have you been a Youth Leader?

8 years

Favorite thing about being a leader?

Spending time with the students and helping lead them to Jesus.

Being able to hang out with and mentor teens that are struggling in a crazy world is the reason I come to work every Wednesday.

Also wrecking them in dodgeball.
