Leadership

Robert Shepitka

Ministry Team

Robert SRob_Isabelhepitka was born in Rockland County, New York (a suburb of NYC). He is married to Isabelle, who is also from Rockland County.

In 1988, Robert and Isabelle moved to upstate New York. In 1997, Robert and Isabelle became part of the family of Light of the World Christian Church. In 2006 Robert was asked to join the Pastoral team fulltime. After serving for eight years, Pastor Robert became the leader of the Pastoral team of Light of the World Christian Church.

Today, Pastor Robert and Isabelle reside in Latham, New York and believe that God’s hand was in their transition to upstate New York from the start. Having been placed in one of the most challenging parts of the country to share the Gospel, they are confident that where sin abounds, grace much more abounds. They have a great love for the regional church and wish to see it strengthened by a return to the centrality of Christ, a love for all people, and a return to consistent corporate prayer. They expect to see the transformation of individuals and communities for the glory of God.


Guy Vozzy

Ministry Team

Vozzy
Guy Vozzy is a life-long resident of the Capital District, who married his High School sweetheart Lucy, in 1968, and they are blessed with two sons.

Having served in various leadership capacities in several area churches, they made Light of The World Christian Church their home in 1995. Guy was asked to join the Pastoral Team full-time in 2006, as he retired after 40 years of service in the local electric utility company.

Currently, Pastor Guy and Lucy serve the Light of The World Christian Church in varied responsibilities. Lucy also leads a Bible Study at St. Peter Armenian Apostolic Church, (her childhood church) in Watervliet, New York. This Bible Study has continued, and grown for the last 20 years. This couple has a heart for the local church, and desire to see the Kingdom of God extended through His Church, by grace empowered obedience, and a passionate heart for intercessory prayer. They expect that the Lord Jesus Christ will be glorified in His Church as His people are conformed to His image, and represent Him to a hungry world. Pastor Guy sees himself being used to bring a strong word that calls God’s people back to discipleship, obedience, and full devotion to Jesus Christ.
