Pastor & Norma Gray
Pastor Gray was born into and grew up in an Alliance family. His father and grandfather provided an early example of how to be a godly preacher. He gave his life to the Lord at age 15, and after high school attended Nyack College. Shortly after graduation Pastor Gray joined the US Navy, served proudly and came home in 1980. While serving as a reservist, he finished a Master of Divinity from the Alliance Theological Seminary. In 1989 he returned to active duty in the Navy and served as a Chaplain until his retirement in 2005.
The Lord called Pastor Gray and Norma to the Beaver Alliance Church in 2008, and they have been very blessed here!!
Norma is a pediatric home healthcare nurse and teaches children’s church. They have two amazing daughters, Amy & Jenny. Both girls have recently married.
Pastor Emeritus - Rev. & Mrs. William Hazlett
Rev Hazlett gave his life to the Lord when he was 17 years old and shortly afterward felt the Lord calling him to ministry. He went to the St. Paul Bible College to prepare. It was there that he met "the girl of his dreams," and married her in 1954. After graduating with a BS in Theology, they began serving together in Alliance churches, and have a legacy stretching over 60 years!!
For more than 10 years through the 1980s and 1990s he served as Pastor of our Beaver Alliance Church.
Recently they returned to Beaver to live with their daughter, Priscilla. Since then Rev Hazlett & Vernice are enjoying partnering with Pastor Gray in ministry here and fellowshipping with the congregation.
